    794 looks nice but is a piece. Would take 790 in a second.

    806, not bad, but you can't do too much with it. (exactly why they only run it during the day)


    And yeah, my Dad's USAR truck is nice.


    But favorite overall would have to be the following,




    2002 Spartan/Saulsbury (pre e-one)




    1994 Simon-Duplex/Saulsbury







    P.S.- No they do not have pumps or water. Exactly the way a rescue truck should be!

    To quote the FPD's website,

    2216 2004 Pierce Dash, this unit carries a complement of specialized tools which can be used
    in technical rescue situations including: trench, confined space, high angle, water, building collapse, automobile and machinery rescues. It has two pre-connected Holmatro hydraulic rescue systems commonly used in automobile accidents and an 8,000 pound Warn winch. A 25kw PTO-driven generator provides power to the 15-foot telescoping light tower with six 1500-watt lights. This unit is also equipped a 21 CFM breathing air compressor and a four bottle cascade system for refilling SCBA on the scene of emergencies. 2216 is equipped with the tools and pharmacy that make it Advanced Life Support Capable.

    Isn't Engine 1 the Holden Fire Explorer's personal apparatus? Or has it not been confirmed.

    -Engine 1 is still in service. The explorers use apparatus at the discretion of the chief.

    -Idk, training, maybe even using it in parades and for advertising, we've been looking at old rescue trucks too.

    Hahahaha. You talk as if you know what an engine or a truck is kids. I hope you ride down the street and fall out of that rat trap you call an engine. Try riding on the tailboard. Step 1. What you do is when your vollyhero's get a call Step 2. sneak up on the tail and just close your eyes. Step 3. the end will come and you won't even know it.
    stay safe!

    Up here in My dept. My favorite rig is our 1987 VW fox. Thats right I said vw fox. This thing runs on bio diesel to boot! It can carry a crew of 5 ( if we squeeze REAL tight) A little KY helps too! I would post some pics but I'm afraid that with our dial-up internet connection that my computer would just shut down. So sorry bout that. My dept is trying to hold a lupper (lunch/supper) cook out to raise the money to get special 1987 edition of a the CJ 7 jeep "grass rig"
