    KME has never built a split-tilt cab for Elgin Illinois. Seagrave built 4 Marauder split-tilt cabs for Elgin over the past few years.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    I think that there is alot of interest in this post because most fire departments are loyal to one brand or one builder of fire apparatus, and they would like to see the FDNY run there engines over the other guys ?

    Understood. But this is 7 pages over a rumor of what someone might end up with.

    I guess I am just happy to like or dislike whatever they or anyone else actually ends up with.

    This is not a "development". It will be an apparatus purchase, nothing more.

    Any fire departments who jump on the band wagon and go out and purchase a FDNY look-alike apparatus are just fooling them selfs, only the FDNY gets the reel New York speced truck, it may have a Seagrave, Ferrara, or KME, grill and name plate but it will never be built to the same specs !

    For those other FD's who have purchased KME, where they fit in around this bid is quite a development!

    What I am trying to say is that many departments will go out and purchase a certain make fire apparatus just because the F.D.N.Y. has awarded a bid , and runs that model engine !
