    Default Rescue Engines

    There are a bunch of nice trucks posted, so I figured I'd start a thread for Rescue Engines. Here's ours...just got home, not in service yet.

    Station2,

    What size suction do you use to feed that 3000 gpm?
    Is it a pant leg 6 ?

    Sounds like a hell of a rig.

    Which station got that Beast of the East? Might have to come down and shoot a pic or two.

    By the way, nice bumper, looks a little familiar. Bet yours has a pump to work the tool though...

    That's an awesome looking rig Ladder27. How many hydraulic reels does it have...I counted what looked like 2, maybe 3 in the officer side front compartment from the pics on your dept's website...are there more? Front bumper maybe? Hard to tell from the pic angle, but does the driver have an SCBA seat? Do you happen to know the shop order # on the rig? We are getting ready to start specing a rescue engine in the next year or so and might like to pull the prints from Pierce.

    berkut,

    The job number at Pierce was 16171. there are 4 reels - 3 in the officer side front compartment and 1 in the bumper. there are 2 extra connections that arent on reels- one on each side of the truck, and it will also be carrying a portable unit. and yes the driver seat is an SCBA seat. We wanted every possible inch of compartment space so the pack for the driver was put in the seat (on our other rigs the drivers' packs are in compartments) the seat is actually plenty comfortable with the pack.

    Here's ours....



    Strictly a cookie-cutter program truck from American LaFrance...nothing fancy at all. We ordered it as a second-out engine but found it had great compartment space, so we moved all our rescue tools to this unit. It is first out for MVA's and second out for fires. It carries a Hurst 32" spreader, cutter, and ram, 3 Hurst air bags of various sizes, cribbing, and a variety of other rescue accessories, plus medical equipment and a spine board. It's meant to respond in combo with the rescue truck on MVA's, but it's set up to handle the MVA alone if we're short handed (has both rescue and fire suppression capabilities).

    Has a 1250 gpm pump and 1000 gallon tank.

    Here is our engine on the far left. It's not ALS but BLS. But my station is a Tech Rescue station and we usually take the rescue and engine.

    Also, the pump is kept in the rear compartment and piped to the front with cutoffs on the bumper.
