    Those look real good!

    Do the Patrols and Squads take a real long time to build, or why does always it seem that they are on chassis that are already two years old when they enter the fleet? You guys keep a stash of NOS trucks somewhere? Or wait for them to go on clearance?

    Not sure why they built it with a '06. My guess is that they spec'd it out a while ago and that is what it was spec'd with when it went out to bid.

    Just wondering since the last group of Squads were built on Chassis that were four years old I think.....

    ....now how do I get to bid on the soon to be retired Humvee Patrols?

    I believe most LAFD apparatus when they go to auction are sold thru Nationwide Auction.

    Default Questions on setup

    Just a few questions maybe a LAFD member can answer. On E59, are the crosslays still "dry" and not preconnected? It also looks like the the supply hose is larger than what they previously carried?

    What are the two rear compartments shown on the officers side rear step?

    Great looking rig!

    The title for this forum is pretty much null regarding 95% of the discussion on here, in my opinion.

    Still, if you skim through the floaters, the muck on the bottom and everything else in the mix that clouds up the water, there's some good info here.

    Nah, I'm strong on the Fire Service in general and our agency in particular... but decry what can only be called an obsession (inside and *especially* outside our vocation) with vehicles. I get thousands of e-mails about our rolling stock each year, and am lucky to get half-a-dozen inquiries when a member suffers a very public debilitating injury. Not a single person writes or calls about wellness initiatives, but I get hundreds of notes and calls from Firefighters (yes, Firefighters!) asking about lightbars. Go figure!

    Brian,

    Please don't feel that you have not made an impression. I was fortunate to visit your department on two seperate occasions and spend a great deal of time with firefighters up to Assistant Chief's.Due to those visits,we now have headsets and intercoms in all of our apparatus (two engines and a truck). We use our ladder company in the same manner as you guys, especially on MVA's. The big guys really can help the little guys!

    I have great memories of Batt. 17, Stations, 28,72, 33 and even OCD.

    Stay safe
