    Default Compartment Set-Ups and VR Tours

    Just interested in how different departments set up their compartments on their apparatus.

    Also any custom tools or unique setups. Pictures or VR Tours of the trucks would be great!

    Here is a compartment VR tour of one of our engines:

    City of Camden, NJ. Rescue Company 1's website has a fantastic section on their new rig, all the compartments and the riding assignments.

    I think this could be a good topic, any other good ones? We just added a Flash virtual tour of our Engine 33-11. Take a look at it here: http://www.beaconfd.org/eng11ine.html

    Default Lol

    LOL funny you comment on that one! YES - THEY ARE CRAP!!!!

    - The engine we really only had to replace the pump shift solenoid, cab lift pump, and have the engine rebuilt on a recall to replace the fuel system from tank to injectors.

    - We also bought a mid-mount 100ft tower with this rig and believe me sir there is literally not enough space here to talk about the issues with this one. It is so bad, we may even sell it!!! I say 50% of the time the aerial either freezes in the sky or won't even get out of the bed!!!

    - Our latest was a heavy rescue and I bet u can guess it wasn't an ALF. We took in a Pierce and are pretty happy with it. Pierce loved our story so much that they even delivered it with a license plate that had the ALF logo on it with a slash through it. (We decided to keep it on )

    Nice layout, but do you have to call a truck company to access the equipment on the roof?? I don't see any ladders or steps to get the tupperware boxes down.

    Ditto! This was one of the trucks we were to see during our last trip to Ephrata but was dropped from the list due to time issues. I'm now sorry we missed it. Oh weel, maybe another excuse to leave New England for a few days.

    There is acually fold down steps at the rear of the truck.
    The truck so far has worked out well. The cab is a little nosiey, but overall very well built truck.
