Tactical Rescue Team (TRT)
The department I am on is currently underway outfitting one of our pumpers for a TRT vehicle. Anyone have any pictures of a pumper retro-fitted for TRT equipment? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Can you define Tactical Rescue?
Are we talking care under fire... a kind of assistance to law enforcement?
Or are we talking technical rescue? And if so, which sub-categories?

That's lot of specialized equipment your talkin about there. I don't see how you are going to fit even half of the necessary equipment and still carry your firefighting tools on a single pumper. Do you have any other apparattus, or a trailer that can assist in carrying the majority of the bulky equipment?

I don't see all of that fitting on a rescue-pumper...Bucks County, PA.

We got the pumper at a good deal, and it will not be used for primary firefighting operations. The entire back for hose is removed and gear will be retro-fitted to up there, to the sides of the truck, compartments, and even back 2 jump seats. Any suggestions and/or ideas?
