    We currently have a set of hydraulics on our rescue with a built in reel.

    We had a portable set on the Engine Tank that went to Oklahoma, that set is now on our Tanker.

    When the replacement ET comes, it will have built in hydraulic reels also with a brand new set of hydraulics. The new truck is going to be a Rescue-Pumper-Tanker.

    So, eventually we are going to have 3 sets of hydraulics rolling out of 1 station...

    The older set (the portable) is Lukus, the newer sets are Amkus. The two are pretty much the same tools and are interchangeable.

    Our rescue has a set of Hurst Transformer spreaders, a Hurst cutter, and a Combi tool. The main pump is a gas one with an electric pump as backup. We also have a couple saws, some assorted basic medical stuff, and misc. rescue equipment. We'll throw a couple of airpacks on it, but it's mostly used for extrications and medical assists and normally only goes to fires if we need extra scene lighting.

    We run a "Medium Duty" rescue with a 14' Walk-In Box on a F-Super Duty Chassis.

    It carries all the "standard" rescue stuff.

    As far as Jaws we have (All Holmatro):
    Truck Mounted "Simo" Pump connected to 2 100' Reels.
    - Combi-Tool preconnected to one and O-Cutter on the other.
    Portable "Duo" Pump in compartment with 2 25' hoses.
    Older set of large(er) spreaders and older O-cutter(spare)
    Chain Shackles for Old Spreader & New Combi-Tool & 1 set of chains
    Small & Medium Telescoping Rams.

    Currently looking to replace Duo pump with 2 smaller PPU's and the older spreaders with a newer (more powerful) set of spreaders.

    Our current Squad is a converted Ryder rental truck. Hopefully we will be replacing it in the next few years.

    We have Amkus tools; spreader, ram and cutter with portable power unit.

    You can see all our apparatus on our website: www.wtfd.net

    Wearefrd, we use a old beverage truck. We rechassied it several years ago and it works great for what we do. On the drivers side we carry Hurst dual pump with 150 cutter, 27 spreader and three rams (up to 60"). On the passenger side we have a Paladin combo tool with a separate gas powered pump and a Roadrunner connected to a reel that works off a electric powered pump. The truck is cross manned by two personnel (three if a volunteer shows up).

    This is backed up by two light rescue / equipment trucks. They each carry a portable pump, spreader, cutter, as well as more cribbing.

    All tools are Lukas.

    We run what i guess would be considered a medium rescue but we have alot of equipment on it. It has a set of Jaws with cutters, spreaders, and a ram. We carry basic ems stuff just to pacakge a paitent if we get them out befpre an ambulance arrives, such as backs boards and collers. We also carry airbags, air chisel, generator, lots of kribbing,various hand tools(axes,shovels,bolts cutters....) a porta power, sawzall and some extinguishers. Then the ladder truck at the other station has a set of Jaws on it with just cutters and spreaders. Our rescue is a walk in box and can carry 5 ppl.
