ff7134 - you see green? Must have been a bad lunch...
It's true, back in mid 70's we switched from red to lime-yellow. We did our own very scientific test. We parked two trucks with almost a truck's worth of space between them and took a picture. People could not tell where the trucks were and where the space was. We then took the same picture with a lime-yellow truck, and all of sudden, there was the truck, there was the space. Of course, now that there are lights everywhere and reflective striping, you don't get the same problems, but the color always makes us standout at scenes. Other company in town is red with black tops, like Chicago (they did this after Backdraft came out - losers)"This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

Don't worry Bones42, SAFD went through the lime-yellow years as well. We are still in the process of phasing in red... Here is a shot of the "old" 33 motor.http://www.sanantoniofire.org

Here's a pic of me pushing water with Engine One.
Two-7 usually pushes water, but we switched spots and this time he got to work my nozzle while I worked his pump (I liked the nozzle better)
FL-70, 1050 Hale, 500 gallons, 275hp CAT, all sorts of bells and whistles.

Okay well, for those interested in things a little bit different. I'll show some pics of our "little" toys out here. Nowhere near as big or shiny as our US counter-parts.... but they do the job just fine ;-) Apologies for all the values being in litres, am unsure about the litre to gallon conversions. (Anyone care to help??)

Thompson 650 rear-mounted pump (3000litre/min)
1400 litre water tank
200 litre 'B' class foam tank

So what's the story behind your picture ?

I dunno, its not our truck, someone emailed this to me a while ago, and since I don't have any good pics of my own trucks, I went with this.
I imagine tho the poor chief of who this truck actually belonged wasn't too happy.9-11-01 FDNY 343 - Lest We Forget
