    Its an old converted ambulance that responds to fires with Gatorade, water, Hot chocolate, etc for the brothers after the fire. Basically a rehab unit. The guys who work on it are on Light Duty. Its great having a nice gatorade and a cool damp towel to put on your head after a job in the summer.

    Sounds like a Canteen truck.

    I can grin, we have one in our stn, and 4 others in the Co. They respond on call, for most 2 (plus) alarms or any other event that DPSC decides warrants that kind of support.
