    yeah, we have a cascade system on our rescue truck as well. Its more convenient that having to bring or tow a dedicated unit to the scene, when you need to refill SCBA bottles.

    Default The Dough Boy

    We have somthing simmalair to what you have. We have an old Tasty Cake delivery truck, hence its name "the dough boy". It has a/c and heating, coffee maker, refigerated bottled water, some food (energy bars, doughnuts ect.) and a moble rechage for SCBA's inside one huge compartment on the side. Its really cool.

    On the back of our rescue, we have a cascade system with an air compressor. This way you can fill the bottles back up that you drain when you fill you SCBA bottles. We have unlimited air on the scenes which is nice. We get called out a lot for that truck at other depts fires. It is a nice system but it was kinda expenssive. I like your refridgerator ideas. We just settle for warm water.

    If that trailer of yours is also for firefighter rehab, where do the firefighters fit inside it to get out of bad weather?

    We have a seperate mobile air truck with a cascade system and a Bauer 28 cfm air compressor for our department. There are also some other random supplies and a fridge. We also get called out to a lot of surrounding departments.

    Nice rig Eone!

    Our cascade system is on our salvage/rescue truck. The rescue squad also has a cascade system on thier heavy rescue, to assist us during major incidents.

    We dont have any rehab trailers or anything, since most of the time a ladder truck respondes to a call, so we just use them, because we have 3 personal assigned to each truck and almost all of out trucks have 8-10 man cabs, so they work perfectly. As for drinks, we carry the big orange igloo coolers and they have gatorade powder mix in them and we just turn a hose to them and fresh gatorade. Also as for cascade systems, each truck carries about 8-14 extra bottles, and the officers trucks (ford F-550's) about 5 of them have built on cascade systems so we use them.

    Well, the closest thing that my department has to a rehab trailer is the refrigerator on the RESCUE truck. There are some ambulance corps. that have rehab vehicles, however.
    Any statements I have made are my statements, and my statements alone.
