    Our Maverick is preconnected. Our second reel has the manifold block.
    We keep hose coiled in the handle of the Paladin and O tool.
    The rams and 32's sit w/o hose.

    Our spreaders and cutters are connected, rams are on a gasoline powered pump. On our new rescue everything will be connected in the front bumper.

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

    We have two reels mounted with Hurst tools, spreaders on one, cutters on the other. The lower shelf has rams on the ready....

    This is where the side entry door used to be on this converted ambulance, it's now a dedicated rescue tool compartment.

    Our Phoenic Model 25 Rescue Tool and S/B Cutter are preconnected to the electric simo pump and are in a bottom slide-out tray. Each has a 100' reel. The 14/25 & 25/60 Rams and one of our C/C Cutters are in a slide out tray above the other tools. We also have a Briggs gas powered pump and two 32' hoses on the rig.
