    And we also get some of these once in a while, but only if the Feds or States is paying for the drop.



    That is a Tanker.

    When we need water for our trucks, you dont call for a Tanker, or you will get one of those.

    You call for a Tender.

    Actualy I cant realy complain about our brush trucks. We are set up pretty well. The state DNRC gives up some support for brush trucks, and we have been very lucking in finding Fed brush trucks for cheap surplus prices. Thats how we came about our CAFS wildland heavy, it was a BLM wildfire unit we bought on surplus.

    Forgetting all the tactical uses of portable extinguishers, has anyone down there looked at the ISO chart of required equipment for pumpers lately? They say you've got to have a water and dry chem.
    Nobody in our fire Department had ever taken a FF1 class until last summer. When 6 of us enrolled in the class one of the things we learned was about the requirement for portable extinguishers on the pumpers. The next meeting night we brought up the topic and the Chief, who has 20 years of volunteer FF experiance, says that we will not carry them. I mentioned the "we have 1000 gallons of water on each truck" mindset and that's the way it is in our department ISO or not. There's no point arguing and being on the Department Board was no use either since no matter what the Board decides the Chief has final say and can override any Board decisions at anytime.

    What about your back up? Do you have back up like this?





    Never mind.

    With 12,000 fire fighters you probly dont need backup.

    Hmmmm, he seems a little high to be makeing a drop...

    Nice tanker.

    How much "wildland" do you have in your 320 square miles? You seem pretty well equiped for wildfire.

    Is it even safe to use a tanker like that in your area? It seems that with 8 million people on the ground that if you dropped you would hit somebody for sure.

    Central what?

    LOL, that is not a part...

    This is a park!







    Actualy I have seen Central Park in movies. Seems nice, except for the muggers.

    Are you serious that you have all that wildland fire equipment to fight fire in Central Park?
