    Default need help to prove my point....

    We are currently looking into buying a new fire truck, we want crew cab pumper ( contender or something like that ) But we have to prove what the department benefits would be at the officers meeting and then (even worst) to the city meeting. I want to know how it helped your department to have a crew cab pumper. We are also thinking of putting our jaws of life on that truck. Please i really need your help.. Any stories, comments and/or feedback is really really welcomed.

    Thanks in advance for all stories, feedback and comments.

    First of all I hope this is a good experince for you all. As for the crew cab I would go with the "two in two out Rule" with a pump operator. This makes for five people need on scene asap. If anyone can find a non-crewcab truck that that can carry five firefighters I would really like to see it. For the jaws of life that is a little harder but If you can prove that you need a pumper and rescue tools at the scene of all MVA's then it would be easier to staff the rescue pumper than a rescue and a pumper. I hope what little information I have provided will be some help.

    Good luck on the new truck

    Throw the Idea of using the cab for rehab on fires at them also. A custom cab also has proven to be safer for occupants in a collision than a commercial chassis.
