    Hey...who do you think is listed on New Jersey's mutual aid plan for wildfires?

    Why FDNY, of course. They love getting invited to the Pine Barrens.

    Just kidding though....they'd get bored watching trees burn...LOL!

    EFD840...

    That brush truck that was posted as an FDNY brush truck was manufactured by Amertek a Canadian fire apparatus manufacturer. They were built for the US Army as a combination structural and crash truck for helicopter bases. They have a 1000 gpm pump and I think a 600 gallon tank. They carry class B foam and are capable of pump and roll in the crash mose through a roof and bumper turret. When used as a structural pumper there is a top mount pump panel that is used.

    A volly FD near me uses one of these as its first out rig for brush and rural fires.

    Amertek also built a crash truck for the US Air Force similar to the Oshkosh P-19. Unfortunately Amewrtek is no longer in business.

    By the way, I used to be a crash fire rescue firefighter for the Air National Guard and that is why I know this stuff.

    Hate to bring this one back to the top, but a few questions were directed my way.

    It's far from ideal, but it is balanced, fair and loaded with some of the most dignified individuals to ever walk the planet. Yep, it's pretty fantastic.

    "Thanks for the post. What's the point?"
    The point was to end yet another negative thread about the FDNY on a positive note. The point was to see if folks would celebrate their successes as quickly as they judge their PERCEIVED failures. However, since Cellblock received valuable info about equipment requirements from EFD840, I think I made my point, and then some.

    "These are The Report from Engine Co 82 guys. The guys everyone put on a pedestal after 9/11."
    Actually, these are The Report from Ground Zero guys. Their fathers were The Report from Engine Co 82 guys. Take it from me, they didn't ask to be put on anyone's pedestal. (I'm guessing most would like to tell everyone exactly what they can do with their pedestal). Nope, they didn't ask for it, don't want it and would glady hand it off to you or any of the other young bloods running around the Expos in their FDNY gear.

    Anymore questions? If so, I'll try to be more timely with my next response.

    SamsonFCDES,

    Actually I don't think there are any Brush rigs in Manhattan, Pretty sure Central Park will be OK

    However we do have a number of them in Staten Island, Queens, Brooklyn and even the Bronx for the outer edges of the city have plenty of marshes, fields and parks. There is one in the firehouse two blocks from my aparment in Brooklyn. Most parts of Staten Island aren't that different from Jersey or any other place.

    The American Fire Service:

    "We have met the enemy and he is us."

    You suck because you are volly, no wait your suck cause you are paid, no wait I'm paid but you suck because you are big city, no wait I'm big city so you suck because you are small town, you suck cause you don't wear leather, you suck cause you don't wear tactical tupperware, you suck because your trucks are yellow, or red, or purple or white or orange or whatever and so on and so on and so on into eternity.

    What a bunch of time wasting BS.

    Let's talk about something worthwhile like smooth bores versus automatics versus low pressure combination nozzles!!!

    The remark was directed at individuals who seem to live in glass houses, yet choose to throw stones. The FDNY will take care of it's own problems, as it should be.
