Thread: Appartus Dictionary
03-28-2002, 02:48 PM #1
The Message Board of the Youngstown FD web site has started an "Apparatus Dictionary". The idea is to have photos of various styles of apparatus posted there so that it can be used as a reference.
Want to know what a Pierce Dash 2000 looks like? How about an HME Boise or a Sutphen custom? There are quite a few photo there in this new feature. Check out the site and come back and take another look in a few days. More photos will be added!

By the way, if you're looking for a photo of a particular style or type of apparatus, ask! Someone may be able to come up with a picture of the type of rig that you want to see...

I just checked out the YFD Site and Forums. I must have been living in a hole or something not to know about this site. Well I found out how to use it and now I am registered as "NewJerseyFireApp". So creative eh? Oh well. I urge everyone to come check out the Apparatus Dictionary because it is truly unique!Jimmy - NJ

The Return of the Apparatus Dictionary!
The YFD Message Board was down for a while. So, if you tried to view the site but couldn't, it is up and running again! As always, lots of new posts to view!

New photos of various manufacturers of apparatus are being added daily. There are rigs from many regions of the United States along with both custom and commercial chassis jobs from both large and small apparatus builders.
Also, there is a nice listing of links to apparatus manufacturers web pages on the site along with many other interesting topics such as the General Fire Call Box discussion and the Northeast Ohio & Mahoning Valley FD topics!
Drop by the YFD Message Board and see!!

youngstownfire.com is back up
youngstownfire.com is back up (well most of it that is). The message boards are fully functional. unforunitly we weren't able to recover some of the most recent posts, only what was on the boards when they did the backup. We lost about 10 members and some posts so if you signed up at youngstownfire.com on the message boards or posted recently, please check and resign up or repost if necessary. I anticipate the site being much more stable now that the majority of the problems are worked out. Thanks and please stop in and look around!
