Some assembly required
ever wanted to build your own fire truck? well friend, here's your opportunity. one slightly used, bent, scratched and completely disassembled 2002 Seagrave fire truck. Something to do on the off days, and maybe lease it back to your dept as a loaner, trainer etc.
anybody know where this rig came from? has some heavy damage to the front end.

If a department bought this and rebuilt it themselves, would it be a "shade tree fire engine?"FTM - PTB

Well, it's got an HFD on the rear of it, just have to find the right H.
Looks like some body damage in the rear too. Almost looks like it got sandwiched.

I saw this truck at the Seagrave factory this summer. It is from Hayward, California. It was actually an Engine that was featured in the 2005 Seagrave calender. It was the June 2005 picture on the calender. We were told the truck hit a jersey wall and then was rear ended by additional traffic. If memory serves me corrent they said weather played a part in the wreck but I cant remember for sure. The truck was damaged on every corner but the front of the truck sustained the worst damage.

Yeah...that'll buff right out!"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
