    Yup you're right .. Those 4 or 5 runs a year is probably taking it's toll.

    By the way, the new engine will replace a 1966, and the new tanker will replace a 1972 ex-logging truck chassis with over 390,000 miles.

    Firefighter safety?


    Pssssssst ..... We run just as much into thier area for manpower, tanker ops and station coverage

    Look everyone, one of the rigs has come in already, and it's modeled in Bobby's own image...

    Actually, there are several departments in this part of the state that have order similar rigs as tankers.

    Doesn't meet our needs though as we want limited attack capability for brush fire operations and compartmentalization so it can be rated as a service truck, but thanks for the suggestion.

    Too small, except as a sprint tanker, but again, thanks for the idea.

    As far as my exterior members, they have the same value as my interior members.

    So you can get enough manpower to go into their area, but not enough to accomplish anything at structure fire in your own area. Yeah sure...

    None? Because they don't show up for calls.

    Generally they request 3-4 members as manpower, so yeah we usually can cover that at night.

    And if they are specific as to tanker operations, we can send just drivers with a tanker and/or tanker engine, and an exterior member as a rider to assist with filling ops.

    The pagers beeped as the tones were started
    The crews were ready and set
    The Lt climbed on and the route was charted
    Some fire they were hoping to get

    As the engine made its way through the night
    The crews gear they're getting ready to heft
    But because they stopped at every green light
    When they arrived there was nothing left

    The vehicle fire started out simple
    It was only as big as a pimple
    By the time we arrived
    There was no one alive
    And the parish was reduced to a dimple.

    We wonder where users have been
    When to the forums we daily log in
    When they do come along
    It's the same old dumb song

    Which apparatus needed replacing the worst?
    Should our engine or tanker be first?
    Our run sheets made it clear
    the direction we should steer
    was probably replacing our hearse.
