    BIG Letters on the back "If this vehicle appears to be fleeing something, FOLLOW IT" Seriously, I like "Special Operations" because your discription of your intended use of the vehicle fits the term. Let us know what you end up with. Stay Safe....

    Apparatus 9. It's just a name...

    I'd have to agree with "Special Operations". HazMat and RIT aren't the "ordinary" operations in the fire service so I'd say that the name fits.

    SPECIAL OPS 9 kind of sounds good.

    Any of the above names sound good but I have a question. You have a special unit for RIT? Is it the only unit you have that does RIT? If so I guess it responds to all fires? Just curious.

    Oh, and someone said RIT is a special operation? I thought it was a routine thing.

    "Special Hazards" sounds like a northeastern thing...

    No offense to those jakes out there...

    There are those who think that they are "Special", but they are really just "Hazards"

    Maybe the people driving them are special... bad hazards or good hazards? The world will never know...

    Wow, I like all ideas presented thus far. Here at home sweet home we usually use the term "squad" to cover anything that doesn't fit into the engine, truck or rescue category. Just my 2 cents worth.
