    Further note: The above callout was an early one. So our EMS friends kindly converted their unit to a makeshift Tim Hortons ! Of course, it was actually maxwell house or something...but it's all good.

    Officer in the pic below is actually my father. Lmao! What a toon!

    CdnFD24 is that 5 inch hose going to the roof in that one pic? May just be where it is in the picture but it looks like a pretty big hose.

    It looks like it's a hand line, but like you said the pic makes it look a bit different. Appears everyone has decent apparatus though!

    If you know how about big those flood lights are that the hose rubs on, it wouldn't probably look as big. I'm gonna say that it's probably a 2 1/2 inch hose.

    There's no 5 inch coming off their engine either.
