    Default Rescue Truck Inventories

    If anyone out there has an inventory list for their Heavy Rescue (especially Rescue/Pumper) saved to a disk I could use your help! I would like to see what other departments are carrying while we consider what we are going to put on ours. If you are willing and able to share the file, please send it as an attachment to wcfra@aol.com .

    Here and There


    Here's a good inventory I found on the internet (Franklin Square FD, NY) http://www.fsmfd.com/PDF%20Files/719...0inventory.pdf

    Here's a basic breakdown on my dept's rescue, which we are still adding to:
    Heavy Hydraulics: Hurst Transformer spreaders (with additional arms, attachments, and chains), Cutters, Combi Tool, 2 rams (long & short), extra hose, electric pump and gas pump.
    Cutting: Electric Saws-All, battery powered saw, hacksaws, air chisel, glassmaster, pick axes, flathead & pickhead axes
    Various hand tools, such as air ratchet, wrenches, halligans, jack, come-along,etc
    Air bag set (I think 6-8 bags total)
    Stokes basket, KED, backboards, c-collars, and some assorted other medical equipment
    Lots of cribbing
    Scene lighting, both portable and fixed (including mast lighting) along with 2 generators, fixed cord reel, portable cord reel, and lose cord
    A few air packs, fixed winch, some limited hand hydraulics, dry chem extinguisher
    Some assorted other stuff I can't think of right now.
