    Talking Type 6 Vehicle Standards

    Please assist or pointe me in the write direction.

    Thumbs up Yeah, That Too...............

    Note that the reference is to MINIMUM standards. My Truck is a Type 6, but since I do Initial Attack or Mop Up, (Sometimes both) My list of goodies kinda exceeds most other type 6s by a few items. Southern Maryland, where I work, is the busiest part of the State, and as such, I try to be prepared for anything. The 600 feet of hose required jumps to 1700 on my rig, and there are enough hand tools to outfit a 15 man crew. Local conditions will tend to cause adjustments in what you carry in your area, AFTER the Minimums are met.
