    Probably only enough to hook up with neighboring departments with LDH?
    As a department, we're not yet on board with the LDH concept, but that's another discussion.

    We probably have enough extra supply hose on station to rate this as an extra engine, but it's primary purpose is what our department calls rescue. There are a few places in the rural part of our territory where it will fit that our frontline engine won't, and we can use it for those fires.

    We looked at this truck as a rescue, with a pump & water, plus foam.

    It is replacing this truck:

    Default man, you got me curious

    So I checked the hosebed height compared to our E-ones. (Top Mounts on Freightliner FL80 chassis)

    The Crew Cab pumper has a hosebed about 4-5 inches lower than the new rescue-engine. The Pumper Tanker has a hosebed 6 inches higher than the rescue-engine. So it's about what we are used to.

    Nice truck, the cab looks funky for some reason though. Is it the picture, or is it that short?

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the ability to control it.
