    Question What setup station would you prefer?

    This is another poll of mine. Just vote,yes this is a "fantasy poll" just seeing what everone would like in THEIR station.


    **BUT**
    It can only be what apparatus can FIT into your station. Do you have enough room for 3 or more apparatus? We don't lol!

    We have room for ten apparatus. The station is equipped with 4 engines, 1 rescue, 1 tender, 1 aerial, 2 BLS Ambulances.
    In a few months it will be 3 engines. One is about to die. It's just being used for the wildfire season.

    My most correct answer was not in the poll. We have no need for a tanker in our area. Optominal for us would be 2 engines (could live with one), heavy rescue, aerial, medic unit (yes we run EMS), B/C, light/air unit. This would be at our central station. Outlying stations would be a quint and a medic.

    I would prefer a single-company station. One rig to check. Only three other guys to please. No chiefs. Put your trucks and rescues and what no somewhere else.

    I want:

    2 Engines(one of them a non-transport ALS unit), a 100' tractor-drawn aerial, 100' tower, heavy rescue, utility vehicle (like Squad 51, ya know) with a combo hurst tool on it

    No need for a tanker, because since we're in fantasy land, there are hydrants every 500 feet with good pressure

    Our staffing:
    1 Pumper
    1 Heavy Rescue
    1 100' Tiller

    No need for a tanker in the city. The Heavy Rescue replaced a second Pumper in '97 but kept the same unit designation.

    I would love an all purpose station with an emphasis on special services/ops.

    How about:
    2 Engines (one being the reserve/spare)
    1 100' Tower Ladder
    1 Heavy Rescue/USAR
    1 Haz-mat
    1 Light Brush Unit(Jeep)
    1 Medium Brush Unit (International or Freightliner, maybe Unimog)
    1 Boat with boat tender
    1 Rehab unit
    1 Communication/Command Vehicle

    Well, OK, but it better be one-story because you'll never get downstairs without a pole...

    I want our brigade to build a second story just so we can have a pole.
    (of course, it would only be a novelty cause we are only volley and there isnt too much chance of being upstairs when you get called out.)

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.
