Got an old tractor that was at the All Mack show at Gerharts in October 2007. It's a 1955 B85F from the Independent Hook & Ladder Co. Hope some enjoy.

Looking at all the Macks reminds me that when I used to go to the LA factory branch they had a salesman who solicited business from the various Fire Departments probably in the whole of So. Calif.  Mack salesmen would wear a Bull Dog pin on their suit or coat lapel and his was red with a fire helmet on the Bull Dog - - I wonder if anyone else ever saw this. Mack was one of the first fire apparatus manufacturers that produced a diesel that met the requirements of the Underwriters Lab . The city of Long Beach was a big user of Mack fire apparatus and there still a few units around up to a couple of years ago.

Here are a couple of restored units that came from the Seattle Fire Dept. I vaguely remember seeing some of these KW's in service as a kid.

The pictures on here just keep getting better.  Those are some great shots.  That Kw from the Digby Fire Department is an amazing machine.  I love the cabover Macks.  Nashville used to run several of them as rescues.  I wish that I had gotten pictures.  FDNY used them as well with Marion bodies as rescues.  You just do not see them much anymore.  Nice shots of the Macks Charlie.  I know some people that would love to ge their hands on that one in the boneyard.

Nice catch Charlie.  That is a tough looking Seagrave.  I guess I had better get a tiller shot as well.  These were shot in Orange Beach Alabama this past summer vacation.

The first fire truck that I ever drove was an old Fore like this one.  The driver stopped in the middle of the road and told me I was driving.  I had to include the shot with my little girl in it.  (proud daddy  you all know how it goes)

That lone star fire truck is pretty wild looking but I think I like it.

A couple of pictures of my old engine before and after someone forget to set the parking brake.  Down a hill, through a fence , three cars and a building.

Nice! The other day I looked up Seattle's Fire Dept (http://www.seattle.gov/fire/photoGallery/apparatusShowcase/showcaseMenu.htm) website. They have a nice apparatus photo gallery.

David K, what is the average age of the trucks in your fleet? I noticed Seattle doesn't have anything really new.
Title: Re: Fire Trucks - add your pics
Post by: David K on April 05, 2009, 02:09:26 PM

We are probably the exception not the rule.  Our reserve engine is a 1987.  Our oldest front line truck is about a 1997.  Our newest is a 2009.  We buy something about every year or two.  We are scheduled to replace engines at 12 years and ladder trucks at 15 years.  Then they hope to get about 5 years of reserve status from them.  We have been told not to expect that to happen this year with money being what it is.

Nice shot of the airport crash truck.

 Charlie I like those two from Haddonfield.  I love the mirrors on that second one.  That is the one thing I wish was different about our new engine. 

Charlie thanks for posting that story.  Wow alot of what he said is on the money.  Most drivers are forced to learn on the job.  There have been many of us that have argued  the state needs to raise the requirements to drive.  Right now you must be 21 and have a drivers license.  The first engine I got to drive was on the way back from a wreck call.  I had been a volunteer about 6 months.  The engineer stopped in the middle of the road, got out and told me I was driving.  I had never driven anything bigger than my Honda at the time.  There is nothing in the world like being 22 or 23 years old and busting through traffic wide open in an engine.  It is by the grace of God that I did not kill someone or myself before I learned to control that rush you get and lift my foot up.  The Captain was right, when you get older you realize that the fire will be there when you get there.  The only time that goes out the window is when there is a fire with a confirmed rescue or any serious call involving children.  All bets are off at that point and we will take much greater risks.  Risk alot to save alot.  In our department the drivers are called engineers and it is a promotion.  I am lucky I have a good engineer and good back up drivers in my station.  If you ask my guys they will tell you that they could drive without looking out the window.  They claim to be able to know when to turn and stop by watching what the captain is doing in the front seat.  I just do not believe them  :-D.  I keep telling them that I am just checking the brake pedal on my side.

I finally found out about Big Flow.  It has a 6 cylinder diesel engine in the bed and a 10" suction inlet that is seen at the back in the photos.  It's maximum flow rate is 3400 GPM but they usually run it around 2500.  They use it for filling portable tanks  for the tankers  or the tankers themselves but it does have the capabilities of running lines.  I think he said 3" and 4" lines but they need to have a good source for drawing  from at 2500GPM.

Until recently i never took many fire truck photos but for some reason thought this 1975 Maxim at the 2007 Macungie show was worthy of a shot.  8-)

Ric thanks for getting the specs on that.  Those are some impressive numbers.  They are moving some water with that truck.  I know a couple of departments around here that would love to get their hands on that. 

Charlie indeed it was worth the shot.  Nice picture of a classic old ladder truck  :-D

Back in 1989 when the PFD re-established a Heavy Rescue Company (for the first time in over 40 years) they ran a 2-piece company, this unit (donated by Coca-Cola) which carried technical rescue equipment, and the gutted ALF pumper, which carried the collapse rescue equipment and associated shoring lumber.

801 is the newest addition to Union Twp FD in Whitley County, IN  Chief 811 was a rep for Ferrara when this truck was ordered and purchased.  The truck commitee requested a number of custom features some of which Ferrara now offers as standard.
(http://i719.photobucket.com/albums/ww200/Terry_T1965/Engine801.jpg)

Washington Twp FD (Allen County, IN) Tank 63 was at the time of purchase one of the largest capacity pumps in the Great Lakes area at 1500GPM/3500Gal.  I was engineer on this unit in 1991.
(http://i719.photobucket.com/albums/ww200/Terry_T1965/tanker-63.jpg)

This Ft Wayne FD (IN) reserve Truck started life as Ladder 1 out of Station 1 Ft Wayne.  With its engine and gearing, it had the highest top end of any Ft Wayne apparatus when put into service.  I supplied this truck (along with a hydrant) at a structure fire once using Tank 63 and a dump tank with two tankers dumping into the dump tank and another tending me at all times and Ladder 1 still sucked me dry several times, hard to keep up with 4,000GPM deluge guns.....

Thanks David, it's just my humble lil abode.  I have homes across the road from me, all good people, and the property beyond the barn has been sectioned off and the 2nd plot away has been sold and a house is going up right now, I have 1st dibbs on the plot next to me, but I just don't have the money right now.  I am on 2.44 acres now and if I can get the other plot bought it would take me to 4.75 acres.

The below is a quote in reference to the Ft Wayne truck.  I cannot remember where all it served as front line but it began at 1's and ended at 12's.  It had a few different homes depending on where various administrations felt apparatus should be housed.

       Reserve/Former Ladder 12 - 2002 Pierce Arrow/1985 Sutphen 95' Mid-mount Tower
This rig served Fort Wayne faithfully for many years as a frontline truck until it was replaced in 2007. It continues to be a favoritewith its crews as Fort Wayne's primary reserve ladder.

Many Departments in Florida call these units "Rescues." They are ALS ambulances with transport capabilities, but also double as a manpower squad/light rescue for firefighting purposes. Usually crewed with 3-4 personnel, they carry self-contained breathing apparatus for each member, plus firefighting hand tools, in addition to a light complement of extrication tools (jaws-of-life.)

Right on the money.  I know some departments in this area looked at  setting up rescues like that with transport ability.  It was going to be mainly as a back up option for multi patient incidents etc.  My department decided to run als but not do any transport.

Today, a buddy (retired from Fairfax Counrty, VA FD) and I went to the Fire Expo at the Fram Show building in Harrisburg. Several things to report...

1) The lack of the American LaFrance display area. ALF was not at the Expo.

2) On the cover of the current (May-June 2009) issue of Fire Apparatus Journal, there is a photo of Reading, PA's new KME tiller. This unit was on display at the Expo!

3) Lancaster County, A was well represented at a lot of the manufacturers booths...Sutphen, Pierce, Seagrave, etc.
It seems a lot of departments there have taken delivery of new apparatus. I really like Lancaster City's new Pierce tower!

Compared to last year, there was fewer booths there this year.

Post by: David K on May 16, 2009, 07:45:09 AM
John I bet you had a pretty good time.  The fewer booths does not suprise me.  I think many departments are putting off purchases.  I heard from our chief yesterday that we have a new Sutphen engine coming the first week of June as a replacement and then all of our other scheduled replacements are on hold until who knows when.

If you were not aware, ALF announced about 3 weeks ago that the were closing the Ephrata, Pa. plant (LTI) and consolidating all operations down in SC..,,,

My opinion.....ALF's days are numbered. All Lynn Tilton and her cronies want to do is shut the place up and sell off all the assets. They have made that known for quite a while. Why they are waiting is anyone's guess. They should just pull the trigger and get it over with.

If you were not aware, ALF announced about 3 weeks ago that the were closing the Ephrata, Pa. plant (LTI) and consolidating all operations down in SC..,,,

My opinion.....ALF's days are numbered. All Lynn Tilton and her cronies want to do is shut the place up and sell off all the assets. They have made that known for quite a while. Why they are waiting is anyone's guess. They should just pull the trigger and get it over with.

I read that. I guess we cant take a ride down to the plant while visiting the Lititz all Mack show to see whats sitting around.

Here are shots of some of New Cumberland, PA's equipment. I took these (and a lot more) at New Cumberland's Memorial Day parade today.

This our 100' Pierce rear mount that was delivered in late 2007.

More photos from a parade yesterday.

Even though our mailing address is New Cumberland, PA, I actually live in Fairview Twp., York County PA and here are some of the pieces that protect our area. My area is protected by Station One and the other station is a few miles south of here.

This is our newest NEW unit. It was delivered in October 2007.

Nice shots John. I like that T800 tanker.

Thanks! About the only time I see that tanker is in a parade. It is housed at Station 2 here in Fairview Twp. and that station is about 3-4 miles from me...Station One is about a mile or two away.

My favorite units were the aerial units...the towers, ladders and the tiller that was in the parade.

I yet to see any newer Kenworth units here in the NW (in person anyway). I think the C500B tanker featured in the Kenworth calendar some time ago is in Washington.

Tiller in the parade? For some reason I can't find your pic of that one.

This Mack CF interests me.  according to the rear door, V8, and I have never seen a grille on a CF either.  Although it isn't much of a grille, it does appear to flow air someplace.

This Mack CF interests me.  according to the rear door, V8, and I have never seen a grille on a CF either.  Although it isn't much of a grille, it does appear to flow air someplace.

I know this piece well. Purchased new by the Oreland Volunteer Fire Company (Montgomery County Company 700) in Springfield Township, Pa. This is one of only a very few (I think less than 20??) CF's that were built with the V8 Mack. The truck suffered an engine and engine compartment fire while operating at a multiple alarm supermarket fire in Roslyn (Abington Township, Pa.) in the summer of 1990. The fire in the truck was believed to have been caused by overheating.

Truck was sent to Interstate Mack in Hagerstown, Md. in the mid 1990's for a refurb, which included the addition of the crew cab doors, which are customized CF doors, with added sheet metal at the bottom, extending all the way down to the bottom of the crew cab. The grill on the front was added for additional air flow.

I caught this nice engine rollin' through an intersection and onto Interstate 81 northbound at Winchester, Virginia on 6/6/09. When we crossed the bridge and merged onto I-81 southbound, traffic was backed up at least 2-3 miles (estimate) already going northbound. The wreck had just happened is my guess though because we saw around 5 state troopers and an ambulance going to the scene when we were in the southbound lanes about 2 minutes after we saw this firetruck. It is amazing how fast traffic can back up on that Interstate.

Terry t  those are some great shots of your incident scene.  What was in the tanker?

Printing Ink.  Flammable 1210.  Flash point of 96*.  Ambient air temp of 88*- 90* and with the insulation torn away from 2,3, & 4 compartments, inside temp rapidly climbed to 100+ so until the transfer of product began we kept cooling flows on the trailer at the caps and on the bottom on the drains.  Number 3 was actually empty, but 1 had red, 2 had blue, 4 had black and 5 had yellow.
Tanks 1 & 2 leaked product from the vent tubes as well as fumes so the decision was made to adjust gasoline powered tankers to deliver only to 801 as this engine was up wind of the casualty and only diesels would deliver water to engine 81 as it was down wind and the tankers had to pass the casualty to and from the water supply.  We chose to go "over kill" on everything because in the past (and the incident became the basis for a training exercise) the same material was involved in an incident and when it ignited it left a 20' deep crater 300' in diameter.  In all my years in the fire service, EMS, towing & recovery and in Haz-Mat I have often said I will go farther learning from someone else's mistakes, then attempting to learn from my own mistakes as they can cause you to go only 6 feet....down.

A local company here in York County, Goldsboro (Company 28) has taken delivery of a new engine...an International 4 door chassis with a Rosenbauer-built body. I don;t know the dertails (i.e. pump size, tank capacity, etc.) but I do know the local sign guy (J&K Signs) is doing the lettering. I shot it the other morning on my way to work and again on my way home.

I hope no one minds, I thought I would add a short clip of the "hidden" lights.  Unfortunately when I put this truck together, LED's were out of my price range so there are a lot of strobes on it and strobes don't video well.

Nice catch.  When I started as a volunteer our department had one very close to that.  It had a gas motor, a John Been high pressure pump that was stuck between pressure and volume and no parking break.  You had to get someone to run out and put down wheel chocks  or you would have to chase it down the road.  Good times.

I shot this LA County Fire KME pumper this am in the Stater Bros parking lot. The crew had just parked and went to do some grocery shopping in the market. The unit is contracted to the City of Norwalk .  Station 115  is located across from Cerritos Community College  and  close by is a neighborhood of one way streets called the one ways. If you could see the truck number on the bumper up close there is a "one ways" decal super imposed on it. the one ways is an area where you don't want to be if you are not  familiar with the neighborhood but the crew apparently has established relationship with the residents. They all looked like they knew how to take care of themselves and the truck had a 4 man crew instead of the usual 3.

A few weeks ago I had lunch with Ralph Ratcliff and AJ DeAngelis, two friends of mine that are firefighters at Station 12, Newportville, Bucks County PA. They invited me back to the house, and gave me a full tour and even a quick ride in Rescue 12, plus a nice look at their 1946 Mack pumper that they use in parades and musters.

Not quite fire apparatus, but it seems to fit here.

I caught this PHOS-CheK T800 yesterday at Floriston. The retardant in the tanks is likely destined for one of the aerial tankers based in NV.

Transporters sort of match the color of the product - - see a lot of air drops during fire season on local TV-- the pilots of the aircraft have to have a lot of skill(and guts) to position the aircraft for the drop.

Yesterday, the Acme Car Co. division of Acme Trailer Works held its first annual Air Cooled VW Car Show at the shop. One of the exhibits was Fairview TWP's recently acquired American LaFrance 85' Snorkel. The is the first Truck that the township fire department has ever had (the DDSP has a rear mount tower, Truck 69).
It was given to the township by the Gauntlet Fire Department of Ebensburg, PA.

Leo:

I can't speak for EVERY company, but around here (South Central PA0, companies are free to choose whatever color(s) they want (if their budget allows it).

Fairview Twp. (our local company) has a mixed color fleet. As money allows, they are slowing repainting the fleet into a unifoed color scheme. Check out their website  www.fairviewfire.net .

Sure Leo, Thats a Seagrave Marauder II pumper with a 1500gpm pump. Most companies can choose their own color scheme, one thing to remember is the fancier the paint job, the bigger the pricetag. Some companies also have artwork done to the truck that relates to that house, the FDNY is  prime example of that. If you look at the rear cab windown of Engine 30, you can see "The Big House" which is the nickname the firefighters call Station 30.

An yes most companies do have the same paint scheme to make the fleet uniform. The City of Newark New Jersey has several schemes and colors on their apparatus, that one comes to mind as one that kind of "bucks the system"

If you really want to see big time American fire trucks, check this link out, it`s one of my favorites. no one does it bigger or better than the FDNY..

Hello Rich,

Many thanks for your info and link!!!!!
For a long time "fire-brigade" trucks were for me a kind of "forgotten part" of trucking!!!!!
Maybe strange, but IMO they were no "really" trucks, "just" needed "vehicles"!!!!!
The anniversary-show of our "voluntary fire-brigade" of Emmerich am Rhein, Germany did make me "change my mind"!!!!!
"Truck-drivers" could make a "run" whith a "loaded" pumper (TLF-16, MAN)!!!!!
HOLY SH##, I "thought" I am an "experiend" driver  (drive trucks since 1980), but "handling" a fully "loaded" pumper and on "topspeed" is a QUITE DIFFERENT STORY!!!!!
I make also a "run" with a "ladder" (DL-24 METZ on IVECO), "HOLY SH## ALSO". Absolute not to "compare" with our "normal trucking jobs"!!!!!
A "fire-brigade" driver give me some "demo's", MAN, I am not "afraid", but after that "demo" I had some strange "feelings" around my stomache!!!!!
So now I am "wondering" myself through a real different part of "trucking"!!!!!
Hope to see and "learn" much more from you all!!!!!
Greetings from Germany,

Leo

Hey Leo

I bet you enjoyed getting to ride with the local fire brigade.  Getting to run down the road to a call with everything going is something you never forget.  One time as a volunteer for me was all it took and I was hooked.  I know in Tennessee fire departments can pick pretty much what ever color they want.  I believe until about a year or so ago the only thing that had to be a certain color were ambulances.  All ambulances in Tennessee had to be white with an orange stripe.  One of my favorite color schemes on an engine is the fire brigade for the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg TN.

John nice pictures of the snorkel.  You do not see many of those around.  Franklin had a 1987 snorkel.  I went up in it once.  I do not like being up in the air so the guy running it thought it would be fun to bump the joy stick around alot.  I was happy not to have to ride that truck very much while we had it.


Rich that is a heck of a nice looking engine.  THey should be proud of that one.

On the way home from my shift I had to drop off some starbucks for my wife at her ems station which is in the same building as my old volunteer department.  I figured it was a good time to get some pictures while I was waiting for her.

These were taken at the main station of the Williamson County Rescue Squad.

Hello David,

OH YES, I certainly did "enjoy" the rides!!!!! After seeing much more "demo's" (also of a "airfield crash-tender") I can only realy "admire" your work (also the drivers!!!)
I am sorry now for my thoughts for "just needed vehicles"!!!!!
I saw also a "demo" of a "fully loaded and on full speed" one "passing" 2 row's of very "narrow" parked cars!!!!! (in our "small" European city's very "common"!!!!!)
"HOLY SH## many times"!!!!! That will "eat" your nerves!!!!! I think I wouldn't even "pass" the "first" ones!!!!!

That Jack Daniels one is FANTASTIC!!!!! Absolute in "style"!!!!!
BTW, that Mack?? in your avatar, is that one of your departement??
Looking forward to see and read more from you!!!!!

The Mack is one of the engines from my department.  It is a 1987 model.  It was our reserve until last month but is has now been sent to our training center to use there.  It is probably one of my favorite trucks that I have ever been around.

I took this pic  in June of 2006 in La Tuque , about 125 miles north of Trois-Rivières Qc. They had a big forest fire  in the previous weeks in the   vast  wooden area north of this town ( mostly black spruce ). This very special truck seem to have been used to control the fire along the railway . It should be quite  special to be seated  in front of this truck working the hoses.

Hello David,

At least I buy a "digital" camera, so I can put my pictures on the internet by the time I have "figured" out how that "works"!!!!!

Will send a PM to you with for me the "best" ones!!!!!

Hello David,

If you "promise" sombody something, you have to "keep" that promise!!!!!
So here are some pictures, links and some "tips" for finding "European fire engines"!!!!!
First 2 pictures, I "just" found via some "googling"!!!!!
See http://www.waalwijk.nl/brandweerauto.jpg and to http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dutch_Firetruck_in_Action.JPG
Some "info" on the pictures: the first is a Dutch "pumper" truck, also called a "TLF" (Tanklöschfahrzeug) in "Germany"!!!!!
the secend is a "VERY SPECIAL" one, it is a "crash-tender" vehicle (on MB frame and engine)from the "Dutch Airforce" somewhere in the "wood-aerea" on the "Veluwe", doing some "practice" or "helping out" by some "bush-fires"!!!!!
1 or maybe the "best" link for "fire-engines" is www.fire-engine-photos.com, there are pictures on it from over the whole world!!!!!
Another "tip" is, give in the "search-machines" from www.webshots.com, www.flickr.com or www.photobucket.com the word "brandweer" (Fire-brigade in Dutch!!!) or "Feuerwehr" (Fire-brigade in German!!!!!) and you will find "MUCH" of pictures you are looking for!!!!!
Also "googling" those words will open a "new world"!!!!! If you add the word "auto" to those words, you will find more specificated ones!!!!!
I hope you will "like" these photos and links, in the "mean-time" I will do some more "investigations"!!!!!

What is NYFD? Never heard of it!!!!  :? 

(Just kidding. In all seriousness, FDNY members get upset when you call them "NYFD." The true name is "Fire Department of the City of New York." The FDNY abbreviation goes back to the inception of the paid department, and they are very proud of the history and tradition that it carries to the Department to this day.

Thats all for tonight. My eyes are tired!

I love FDNY apparatus...especially tillers!

My greatest memory of an FDNY apparatus sighting was back in 2002 at the hobby show in Chicago. Crazy Larry from Boley models brought in a new-built Seagrave engine straight from Clintonville! I was so tired from walking around the show, I just had to park my keester on the rear deck!

Drove into the lot of Seagrave Sales & Services in East Brunswick NJ today when i noticed about a dozen fire trucks out of the corner of my eye.  :-D Talked to one of the workers who invited me to walk around and take as many photos as i wanted.  :-) They refurb a lot of FDNY apparatus here & he said the yard is usually full - good to know for future trips to the area.  8-)

Jersey City Fire Dept. hook n' ladder was what caught my eye in the first place.

All great shots and equipment, Lee.  Apparently there IS a prototype for some of Boley's 1/87 scale tankers (That's been the subject of some debate among the 1/87 vehicle crowd).  Is that GMC from Plympton & Gilbert's Cove still a working rig?

I've always been fascinated by the commercial chassis apparatus that the volunteers run, there's a lot of variety to be found there.

On the eastern seaboard, especially in Pennsylvania/New Jersey/Delaware and New York State, you can and will see almost any variation and any variety of colors of firetrucks.

One town in Pennsylvania, Grapeville, has.....what else???? Grape colored rigs. Here is a link to a news story with a picture.

Here are a few of the apparatus shots from his funeral as a tribute to his service. 

I find nothing so moving as a funeral for an LEO, FF or Medic.  Unfortunately the next county over lost a deputy (Sgt actually) yesterday in a vehicle crash. His funeral will be Tuesday.  I have lost two friends in Law Enforcement since 1997. A deputy in Allen County, Indiana was shot to death in a shoot out in which another was wounded. Eryk Heck killed his assilant in the exchange.  Steuben County, Indiana Sheriff Joel Working died of cancer while in office. Joe's family & my dad & I and Eryk's dad Don Heck who was a police dispatcher for Ft Wayne (IN) city were all very close friends. We have since lost Don to cancer as well and although he was retired from the city, the PD & FD paid a very special tribute to him.
I don't have a picture to post, but if you ever want a picture that will never leave your mind, go to the funeral of an LEO, FF or Medic.  Until you have you cannot understand.

I am hoping next year I am going to go to Firefighter Acadamey if I can get the funds together.
My life long dream was to be a Fireman/EMT, so hopefully next year i can be.

Also have a question I was looking on the Indiana website, some trucks are refered to as "quints"
we dont have that around here and wonder what it meant

Andrew
Title: Re: Fire Trucks - add your pics
Post by: David K on November 30, 2009, 04:15:03 AM
Andrew a "quint" is a quintuple combination pumper.  It has 1) a minimum of a 750 gpm pump,  2) minimum of a 500 gallon tank,  3) hose ,  4) 163 feet of ground ladders and  5) a power operated aerial device.   Basicaly it is an engine with a hydraulic ladder on top.  We have three in our department that we run as engine companies.  I know several years ago St louis went with what they called the quint concept.  The ordered all of their engines like this.  We started that way but have backed away from that now.  I hope that answers your question.  Good luck  I hope you make it into the academy.  I would not trade my 18 years of burning buildings for anything. 

Here is a picture of one of ours

12/15/84--Burnham, Illinois.  The town of Burnham is named after the famous architect Daniel Burnham, responsible for the transformation of Chicago's lakefront for the 1893 World's Fair.  Burnham, Illinois, is a small industrial town just south of Chicago, and these are two photos of some of their fire equipment.

BFD 2013 is a brand new MFG-Emergency One engine.  With a 33' long frame, the engine contains a Detroit Diesel and an Allison Torque Converter Transmission.  The engine itself cost $107,000 and over $40,000 worth of equipment were added to it.

My Uncle John was a Tillerman on one of the Bayonne NJ Fire Departments hook & ladders for years. Dad & i used to visit the firehouse frequently and i still remember the thrill climbing up and sitting in his seat - man it was awesome. This post reminded me after all these years how easy he made it look backing into the firehouse - something i had almost forgotten. :-)

Severn Township, Ontario, Canada. Tanker # 3, GMC TopKick, 1500 gallon water hauler. Not nearly as glamorous as the pumpers & aerials - but an essential part of rural firefighting. We have a total of 3 tankers, all on similar chassis.

Original specs for this truck called for a fire pump to be fitted at a later date. Space was left between cab & tank for this purpose and the vertical cabinet installed in the interim. Changes "at the top" resulted in a pump never being fitted, leaving our hall with the longest tanker out of the 3 - but also the most storage space!

Severn Township Pumper # 4. 1987 GMC Brigadier, Cummins/Allison, 850 Hale pump. Currently our "reserve" truck.

Built new for then Orillia Township, my understanding is the cab/chassis was piggybacked onto a dump truck order for the same township hence the "butterfly" hatches on the tilt hood.

Amalgamation/restructuring in Simcoe County during the 1990's resulted in Severn Township being formed and absorbing Orillia Township. Truck was renumbered to Severn Pumper # 2 and continued to operate from the same station. A new E-one was purchased a couple years ago for Station 2 which is when this one became Pumper # 4, in turn replacing our former "reserve" unit, an 80's GMC 60 series with gas V8/5 speed trans/2 speed axle & 650 pump.

Ah, the old fire apparatus reassign/renumber "shell game"!

These ain't much for pics, but first 3 I caught them passing by on their way back from a house fire. It was a big old house with a barn fastened on it. Everything was lost. There was 7 departments at this call. Also in the past month we've lost 4 fire fighters in Digby County. 2 were from Barton & Brighton volunteer FD, 1 from Meteghan Volunteer FD and one from Little Brook Volunteer FD. I probably already posted the pic of MVFD. The one of LBVFD, I got it from a friend that was taken at a parade last summer. So here's a post to those guys.

I do not get too many opportunities to grab photos of fire trucks, so I thought I would throw these in. I went to the 2010 Jacksonville Auto show today and there were not many manufactures displaying. I guess to fill space they had the local firefighters union display their ALF pumper. they also have a ladder truck they use at events as well.

I took it with my cell phone, and it kinda looks like a toy in one shot. Jacksonville retired the last model like this in 2004.

These guys showed up just as I was leaving. I think this engine is a reserve engine, because Station 4 normally does not have an ALF. The engine number is usually gold and a ghost of 19 can be seen on the first compartment door.

Good pics all - I never get tired of seeing fire apparatus photos. It's especially interesting to see how different departments spec their equipment.

And "bonus marks" to you for helping the department with training! It's often a struggle to secure vehicles and/or a place to train on them - we have a local wrecker who is pretty good about letting us come out to his yard.

Glad to hear no was hurt in Engine 63's MVC. We had an outside speaker (who is a deputy chief in a large urban department) give an excellent presentation on apparatus & response safety at our annual meeting a couple years back and he quoted some sobering (US) statistics: Out of an average 100 line of duty deaths each year, approximately 50% are cardiac related and 25% are from motor vehicle collisions.

Post by: TejasTrucker on February 19, 2010, 04:03:54 AM
R. Nagle, yeah we are the ones they call if they need a wrecker, but this time they got tools
called Res-Q-Jac(SP) to help lift the cars off people until we can arrive and remove it fully.

Yeah Ray it was werid, cause they canceled yesterday's class due to a House Fire that morning,
but ended up seeing them anyway :|

They are going to finish the training next wed. and thursday so Ill get pics of the reserve engine if 63 is not fixed.

Found Rescue 20 out of place in Lake Manawa, IA on 2/20/2010.  Unit was plated in Wisconsin and unfortunately soon after I took the pic a car came by and prevented me from seeing the logo to determine where it came from.

There was a nice painting of a dragon(?) on the rear rollup doors. 

Anybody have any info?

Alright, Now Here is Denison FD I shot yesterday at their Central Station.
I finally got pictures of Ladder 61, its normally last out of station, and normally parked inside.
So I was excited to find it out twice in 2 days.
(http://i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo218/texastowing_2008/Ladder61.jpg)
(http://i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo218/texastowing_2008/ComdL61.jpg)
Also Here is 3 shots of the old engines, trucks.
This was used all the way up until 2 years ago before it was replaced,which i still believe it is still used
for major fires.
(http://i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo218/texastowing_2008/OldEnigne.jpg)
(http://i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo218/texastowing_2008/OldEngine.jpg)
And here is their antique truck they use for parades
(http://i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo218/texastowing_2008/Antique.jpg)
Engine 63, finally back after being wrecked
(http://i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo218/texastowing_2008/E632.jpg)
Here is Engine 63 Reserve still being used at station 1

Captain Impala
(http://i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo218/texastowing_2008/CaptainImpala.jpg)
Also I believe I have figure out how much equipment Denison Has, since they had most of it out the other day, which i believe was a a training and wash day.
8 Medic Ambulances, 4 Active and 4 reserve, they have a lot of reserve due to the Ford's are only 3 years old. The Dodge ambulances were donated by a private individual to the FD.
6 Engines, 3 active 2 reserve and 1 antique for parades
1 Truck which runs as a Quint
2 Brush Trucks
1 Command
and proably 6 Department Vehicles.

This fire station is in an area I am not familiar with  but there has been a lot of development there in the past few years so it is probably not very old.  Here is a pic of the pumper that is shown in the firehouse turning the corner returning to the Fire Station. I shot it thru the windshield waiting for the light to change and caught them making the turn. Not a good shot but it had to be quick.

I caught this  Thibault equiped with a rear mounted aerial ladder as he was leaving the fuel islands at the Ultramar truck stop in St-Nicolas Qc.  Truck is unmarked but should be a spare unit for one of the FD  in the Quebec City-Levis area. This unit should be at least 20 year old as Thibault have closed his doors in 1990  after building fire apparatus  for more than seventy years.

No red lights or siren--just a service vehicle leaving a Orange County Fire Authority station in Seal Beach CA--the fire station is in the background

LA County Fire uses small stake rack trucks with a full complement of lights that make service deliveries.

Alrighty, Here is when I went to Dallas Fire Rescue Station 18 back in Early April.
Me and my wife went to a charity walk at the Dallas Zoo for Epilepsy. So being the good
guy I am I told her I would go if I could go by Fire Stations :evil: Station 18 is located in Downtown Dallas in
the Historic West End District. It is there largest Station Apparatus wise, as this location does all the air bottles
for the entire Department. First when I got there i took photos from outside, watched them leave on a call and when they came back
the Engineer on E18 asked if I wanted a tour.
First here is 829 Which is 1 of 2 Mobile SCBA(air bottles) truck that can fill bottles on scene of a Fire.
(http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk182/TexomaAutoCare/IMG_0393.jpg)
Here is 839 which is 2 of 2 which is 2nd due out if they several fire calls at once.
(http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk182/TexomaAutoCare/IMG_0392.jpg)
Here is 820 and 821 which deliver the bottles throught the Dept during the day when needed.
(http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk182/TexomaAutoCare/IMG_0395.jpg)
(http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk182/TexomaAutoCare/IMG_0369.jpg)
Here is Rescue 70 leaving on a call when i arrived there.
(http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk182/TexomaAutoCare/IMG_0373.jpg)
(http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk182/TexomaAutoCare/IMG_0374.jpg)
Here is Engine 18 leaving on a different call at the same time as Rescue 70
(http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk182/TexomaAutoCare/IMG_0375.jpg)
Here they are returning
(http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk182/TexomaAutoCare/IMG_0371.jpg)
They then left on a call when I was around the block I walked back and caught them coming in
that is when the guy invited me in.

Post by: Gary Smith on May 27, 2010, 03:44:50 AM
My work is located on the campus of Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.  Our building overlooks the emergency room entrance.  A few weeks ago, I caught 9 ambulances at one time at the ER:

(http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll106/R686ST/Emergency%20Vehicles/DSCN4729.jpg)

FRONT ROW (L-R):
Baltimore City Medic 2 (Broening Hwy.) (IH 4400)
East Coast Ambulance (used by the hospital for non-emergency transports) (Ford E350)
Baltimore City Medic 10 (Eastern Ave) (Ford F450)
Rosedale VFD (Baltimore County) Medic 285 (Ford E350 chassis)
Baltimore County Medic 6 (Dundalk) (FL FL60M2)

BACK ROW (L-R):
Baltimore County Medic 9 (Edgemere)
Baltimore County Medic 15 (Eastview)
Baltimore County Medic 16 (Golden Ring)
Baltimore County Medic 8 (Fullerton)
(ALL FL FL60M2s)

Baltimore City and Baltimore County are separate jurisdictions.  Baltimore City is all paid, Baltimore County is a mixture of 25 paid and 33 volunteer stations.

All great photos by the 3 of you. Love the Tacoma Tiller, and I love command trucks, and 9 ambulances
wow! The two local hospitals couldn't handle that many combined, that has got to be a one busy E.R.

Also finally got a photo of our Engine/Pumper. It is a 1989 E-One, not sure on the specs of it though
I know it has a Sparta Gladiator Cab, and has only 99,000 miles on it. It originally came from Plano Fire Rescue,
near Dallas, Its not the best but I had to run to car to grab my helmet before I left. so i grabbed a quick photo.
Also the truck drives pretty good. I was the one designated to drive the rig around the airport to the Fire Department, were we do
alot of our training, since our teacher is the Chief there.

Good shot, Andrew.  Like anything else, the ER traffic ebbs and flows during the course of the day.  4 or 5 ambos is not unusual, 9 is extreme that's why I took the picture.  With the size of the city and county departments, it's not unusual to see 4 identical ambulances in a row backed in.  FL and IH could get some great advertising shots......

Hopkins Bayview is the main hospital in that part of town as well as the burn center for the Baltimore region.  It's a branch of the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital.  Hopkins is huge, even from about 3 miles away where we are it looks almost as big as the rest of downtown Baltimore.

there is a Seagrave Service Center on a side street by the dairy but I have never been able to get a shot of anything that might be there.  Yesterday I was driving by and the gate was open and this unit was parked with the motor running and I managed to get this shot from my car.

I sure hope that classic Kenworth gets restored!

Severn Pump 4 (another photo on page 26 of this thread) during a training session today at Station 3 in Coldwater, Ontario. Pump 3 (1996 FL80 crew cab) is in the hall.

Sharp eyed viewers who may be a little  :? by the setup need not worry, drafting from a portable tank supplied by hydrant is not a standard Canadian practice!  :lol: :-D  This was training for a group of new hires, main focus was on hose/appliances and hose streams. This arrangement also gave them an opportunity to set up portable tank & hard suction hose for drafting.

In the Tahoe area wildfire is the a huge threat.  Most communities around the lake are are built in Forests; keeping the brush back a safe distance from structures is a never ending task. I caught this Meeks Bay FD M2 with a chipper body and chipper in tow in Tahoma on 6-30.

Nice surprise to end the day was this unit from my local FD in Barnegat NJ hooked up to a hydrant at the construction entrance of my development. It was pretty busy over the weekend as we had a 900 acre brush fire just west of the station where this rig is located.

this scene is repeated quite often at the group home behind my house. I took these shots standing in my yard with the camera pointed over the fence. The clients are adults with special needs and it is not unusual to wake in the middle of the night and see the reflection of the flashing red lights on the wall of my bedroom which faces toward where the action takes place. The  driver is getting tuned around to make her run to t he hospital.  the paramedic truck moved ahead to give her room to  turn. the usually dont turn on the sirene until they are out in the street.

Here is Philadelphia fire department ladder 20, tractor drawn aerial. A lot of controversy has been brought up about the city closing fire stations on a rotation every fire station is closed for a day to save money. I'm for it because they usually respond for stupid things, like water main breaks, and other non emergencies.

Philatruck,
      Let me enlighten you on rotational closings of Fire Houses. They leed to longer response times. That includes fire, and non-fire emergencies. They also give the Politician the idea that if they can be closed on a rotational basis, they can close  PERMENANTLY !  :cry:  I am sure you would not want your local Fire House to close. :wink: By the way, it also opens the door to layoffs and demotions. :-P
Title: Re: Fire Trucks - add your pics
Post by: Philatruck on August 12, 2010, 12:39:43 AM
It was just my 2 cents Yellow line. I don't want to see a fire station closed. I believe the fire station where that truck came from is very busy, because it is in a well populated area, so they would close it very little , since it is a full time job instead of a volunteer department, the union may pay the fire fighters, the days their stations are closed.

Or they could be assigned to another station on closure days especially if they have reduced the number of active fire fighters.

LA County Fire has mostly stations with just a pumper and a utility or paramedic truck with an aerial that covers several stations and the stations are spread out so there is usually a unit available fairly close but not necessarily from  the neighborhood station. LA County Fire hasn't talked layoff but Long Beach is trying to close some stations and that doesn't sit well with the residents who depend on them.

It is just my opinion but closing stations and cutting staffing is never a good idea.  It does create a risk to public safety.  With the economy being what it is I am afraid it is a sign of the times.  I am in the IAFF and unless it is something I have never heard of the union is not paying them when they are off.  My guess would be they are detailed to other stations, being forced to take vacation time or on a furlough  without pay for the day.

Here's some shots of the new truck that arrived here in Weymouth on the June 19th, 2010. Got a buddy of mine one night to drive it outside so I could take some pics. Hope I haven't added too many of it. Ain't use to having a fire truck that fancy around here other then up in Digby.

This is a pic of an aerial being used for training a tillerman--if you look close you can see two firefighters in the tillerman seat as the truck rounds a corner in an empty area of the Cerritos Mall parking lot. This  truck is not normally assigned to station 30 but the KME that they regularly use has a closed cab for the tillerman and only room for one person. Older trucks used as spares have removeable magnetic numbers so that they can be changed to conform to the station they are operating from. If the metal on the unit is aluminum they use metal screws to attach the numbers.  The firefighters do a lot of outdoor training on this parking lot.  They do their physical  training at an ice skating rink owned by Michelle Kwan ( an Olympic skater) and there are trucks parked there every morning. It is up the street from California Dairies

The little boy in me came out today and I took the opportunity to get some pics. This is a public outreach by the Nassau County Florida Fire and Rescues Service at the local Home Depot. Every Saturday, they have a craft workshop for the kids. Today's theme was how to build a wooden fire boat. Home Depot invited Nassau County Fire to come out and display some of their equipment.

Engine 70 - 2005 (?) E-One

I ran into this photo during a search for something else, thought it would go here rather nicely. It was taken about 8 years ago up at Truckee, CA. The engine was purchased by the Southern Pacific Railroad and saw use in the area, think it was part of the protection for the timbered snow sheds.

Today was Costco shopping day, gee I feel somewhat poorer after the trip. On our way out to the store in Sparks, on Sparks Blvd I spotted this rig being used to train a lady firefighter for a CDL license in Wild Water's unused parking lot. Of course had to stop for a photo, they parked it just right to get this rather nice shot of the hazmat team rig. Hope some find this of some interest.

According to a neighbor they transported a young boy who had medical issues.  The second and third pics are the aerial backing off our cul-desac street and the 4th is the paramedic truck leaving to follow the ambulance to the hospital which is about 3 miles away.

I thought I had posted this shot that I took on 2-2-2011 but I may have forgot to hit the post button or posted in the wrong thread.  A Pierce aerial that apparently has been serviced at the Seagreave facility where it is parked in the drive. There are a couple fire fighters having a conversation before driving off. It belongs to the City of ElSegundo CA that is right next to LAX and there is also the Chevron refinery so it is an appropiate unit for that area.

I took this picture last weekend in Yuma at the Midnite at the Oasis run. It's a 1940 United Kenworth. It's built on a Kenworth chassis and United Airplane Manufacturing Company built the rest and first registered it in 1941. Originally ran a 850 cu in, 243 horsepower horizontal Hall-Scott motor model 177.

It is now powered by a Big Block Chevrolet. It is owned by Doug and Lynn Hammer of Banning, California

Caught these guys at the TICO Warbirds airshow on Sunday. The airshow had pyrotechnics for simulated attacks during the show. These trucks from Brevard County Fire and Rescue were there to put the grass out. Most Florida counties have several of these old 2 1/5 or 5 ton surplus trucks rigged for brush fires. The will have various configurations of brush guards, platforms and remote nozzles. These guys just got through fighting a 16,000 acre fire just a few mile north of Titusville, so I think they were prepared for this little flame up. If your traveling to FL for spring break, be careful with the matches.

Chicago Fire Dept (CFD) is a Black over Red scheme.  St Joseph Twp F.D. in Allen County (Fort Wayne) IN is Black over Red as well http://www.sjtfd.com/ .

Rama Fire (near Orillia, Ontario) is another department that favours black over red for their apparatus.

Black and red is becoming a pretty popular trend. I know Nassau and Seminole Counties in FL are in that scheme.

Nice catch on a rare bird. I've only seen a handful of Volvo FEs and never one as Fire Apparatus.

Actually, they were a popular commercial chassis for a short time used by "Superior" who built fire apparatus in Red Deer, AB. They closed down after E-One bought them out, then slowly overtime closed the Cdn Plant. Oakville, ON had two of them in service not too long ago.

 I saw the E-One plant right off I-75 in Ocala the other morning......unfortunately i didn't have enough time to stop before i left for the airport. Probably would be an interesting tour.

Fire Apparatus and Independence Day parades go hand-in-hand.  In my area, parades open with a procession of apparatus from the neighborhood firehouses, usually with lights and sirens.

Monday I got the entire fleet of the Arbutus (ar-BYOO-tus), MD Volunteer Fire Department (Baltimore County Station 35) at the local parade:

Severn Township P-1, soon to be P-4: With a new pumper going into service at Station 1 (P-1), this one will become the reserve unit (P-4) and replace the current P-4, 1987 Brigadier pictured earlier in this thread.

Photo taken last week behind Station 3 at our training night. Topic was pumping/drafting/rural water supply, everyone got a turn at operating the pump panel. This is the one "oddball" in the department as it has a Darley pump, everything else is Hale.

I was taking a walk from the Hampton Inn where I stayed the night before and heard a big bang and there was a cloud of blue smoke as I approached this intersection--fortunately there was no fire as there were injured people in both cars.  The Pumper got there first and the crew tended to  the occupants and there were two ambulances to do the transport. This section of Memphis off 240 between the junctions with I 70 and US 78 has a lot of hospitals close by.    10-11-2011

I was taking a walk from the Hampton Inn where I stayed the night before and heard a big bang and there was a cloud of blue smoke as I approached this intersection--fortunately there was no fire as there were injured people in both cars.  The Pumper got there first and the crew tended to  the occupants and there were two ambulances to do the transport. This section of Memphis off 240 between the junctions with I 70 and US 78 has a lot of hospitals close by.    10-11-2011

Looks like Tennessee changed one of their laws. It required that all ambulances had to be white, with the orange stripe. It dated back to the 70's when the state required all counties to provided ambulance service. Rural Metro, which contracts ambulance service to a lot of TN counties had to change from their trade mark green to white in order to operate in the state.

What a diverse set of great pics.  We had a chemical plant burn up here in Texas recently and the Ennis Fire department lost a "aerial ladder" truck. They said the replacement truck would cost about $2 million and maybe a year to get it delivered.

I watched that fire incident live via two television station's live webcasts. It was quite the scene watching the pool of burning liquid flow out of the building and surround that truck. Luckily, the fire fighters were able to get off the ladder and out of the way,

A nice article & photo of a Pueblo CO fire truck in patriotic colors..........red, white and blue. All the trucks in the department are being repainted in this scheme. 8) IIRC Pueblo has had a Medal of Honor recipient in WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

Atlanta Airport Emergency Services were busy this past Sunday.

Not sure if this was a drill or a if they were responding to a possible incident. Any case, everything appeared to be OK and they returned to stations. There were three areas where they were staged. I was able to get shots of two of them.

The old Mack still looks in good shape.
I grew up when almost all of NYFD was Mack,
both Engine and Truck.
Its not been the same since Mack stopped making Fire Equipment.

So I was up on my favorite hill at Mustang getting some shots of the dirt trucks moving to higher ground to avoid the forecast flood.  On the way back down the hill I see this big grey cloud at the off ramp, a older 90s Dodge Cummins had become a Car-B-Que. After adding my Extinguisher to the total of 4 or 5 that knocked down the engine fire I was able to get this shot of Storey County E174 starting to mop up. Truck is a Pierce-4800

Jim.

Jim, it was sitting in a Wallyworld parking lot in NW Edmonton. Unfortunately, I was in major rush mode, so  I didn't have time to really investigate it, as much as I would have loved to! I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me as I came around the corner. It looked like a semi and a fire truck parked beside each other, then to my surprise, it melded into one unit! I didn't care if the customer was waiting, I had to get those pics! From the pattern of the road spray, I'd say it had done some traveling down the dirty highways of Alberta, so maybe it's some kind of mobile training set up?

That is really cool Jon ,great catch.That is not the first tractor the Edmonton fire department had.They used to have a Kenworth W900 for their hazmat.It was sold and is now being used privately now.This is unfortunately the best shot I have of it taken a couple years ago.                  (http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr347/bananaboat03/on%20the%20road/039.jpg)                         Their new unit is way cooler.

Oh oh, do we have rivalry between the Oilers and the Flames going here???

Thanks for the info guys, never thought it would have anything to do with Hazmat, I think that warrants a 10 minute delay in forwarding the freight!!

One morning last February I was sitting outside Tim Hortons having my morning brew. A couple of Mississauga fire trucks went past, picking their way through the morning rush traffic, responding to a call.

1950 Ford Dome Valley FD
When the museum closed this was found on the farm in a barn and the young man that has it is a firefighter in Yuma. It had 6,000 miles on it when found.

It has been completely restored.

According to the info I was able to piece together, this rig started out as a 1971 Kenworth/Swab with the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad in Maryland. In 1982, BCCRS bought a new Kenworth/Saulsbury to accompany it. In 1985, the '71 rig was sent to Saulsbury for a refurb, where the cab was replaced by a 1985 cab and a new Saulsbury body, matching the one on the 1982 rig, replaced the Swab body. This rig was delivered in 1987.

As these rigs were surplused out of USAF service, many of them, both Dodge and GM tilt-cab versions, ended up in fire departments.  I've shot about five of them over the years.

Nassau Oak VFD near Callahan, FL has one in service. I am not sure what type of truck it is. It looks like an FWD model, but have never gotten close enough to know for sure. Passing one of the State offices in Stark, I saw several recently surplus tankers waiting to be sent to agencies. I figured some of them would eventually be turned into FD tankers.

I've always liked these tankers!  The Sudan Fire Department (Sudan, TX) used to have a white Dodge just like this.  It's since been scrapped and replaced, but It was still one of my favorite trucks.  The only disadvantage I'd heard against it was that fully loaded the top speed was about 40 mph, which when you are going 20+ miles out of town for a major grass fire isn't necessarily a good thing...

Always neat to see the non-traditional livery. Growing up in Nashville in the late 70's and 80's they went to the safety green color, then all white in the 90's. Always thought the green was a cool  looking paint scheme.

The Quest came out in 2007, as I recall.  The cab arrangement makes driving one more like driving a car than a truck.  The chassis is available for numerous applications, from pumpers to aerials.  I have photographed 9 of them so far.

Indiana is nothing, just wait until you see the rigs from Pennsylvania! 

Apparatus paint colors in the U.S. are determined by each fire department, there is no mandate or standard.  The variety is endless.  Red is most common, often with a white upper cab.  Black/red is becomming very popular as well.  There was a "lime-yellow" fad in the 1970's, but much of that has gone away.  Other shades of yellow are still found here and there.  White is also fairly common.  The more uncommon colors, such as black, gray, orange, gold, purple, maroon, tan, silver, pink (yes, pink!), along with dozens of shades of green and blue all make for very interesting paint schemes. 

I have been fortunate enough to have photographed hundreds of apparatus in "interesting" colors over the years and I will post some of them here, but it may take some time, only being able to post two per day.  Please be patient.

Thanks for the reply Dave.........the age old saying "Fire Engine Red" does not apply any more! Cool to see the different colours though! Take your time, it's easier to look at 2 a day as opposed to a dozen so it's all good!

There is a web site that might interest you called Canadian Fire Truck Archives. It is basically older engines and trucks but I have checked it out often. Here is a link to it...if you have time!

My Doctor only allows me two a day, if I have a dozen, then I could go into a coma .... or was that the Krispy Kremes donuts he was telling me to limit.

Seminole County, FL had an orange rig(s) during the early 2000's but swapped over to red and black. When I lived in Knoxville during the  90's, Rural-Metro covered Knox County and still had the safety green/White apparatus. Their trucks always looked good.

Along with everyone else, am enjoying the photos and thanks for sharing.

It might have been the Krispy Kremes....

Seminole County's current fleet is white/red with black and gold stripes.  Rural Metro still uses the same scheme as they always have.

All-Steer is a brand name of the system manufactured by Pierce Manufacturing.  It has been around since 1994.  Similar concepts have been around longer.  On the All-Steer system, there are two modes of operation: coordinated mode and crab mode.  Both are computer controlled with speed limits for each mode.  In coordinated mode, the rear wheels steer in the oposite direction of the front wheels, allowing for tighter turns.  With tandem rear axles, each rear axle's degree of turn is different, allowing for maximum tire life.  The system defaults to front-only steering at speeds above 35 MPH.  In crab mode, all wheels steer in the same direction at the same degree of turn, allowing the vehicle to "side-step" obstructions on the fire scene, such as parked cars.  This mode only operates at speeds below 15 MPH.  I think I have a shot or two of an All-Steer in action, but I'll have to dig them up.

Thanks for that info,it is almost exactly the same for the GM truck, having the same functions, good option for an emergency vehicle!

No longer a working rig, but noteworthy to me as it's an unusual piece for the East Coast.  "Purkey's Party Pumper" is a 1985 Spartan/Western States originally built for the City of Portland, OR.  After retirement by Portland it went on to a volunteer department in Oregon.  Purchased a couple of years ago by a retired Baltimore County firefighter "for the grandkids" as he told me.

Detroit 6V92T twin turbo with an Allison.  Photographed at the Arbutus, MD Independence Day parade 7/4/13.

This Mississauga fire truck was on my street on the evening of July 23, 13. (Not at my house though) There appeared to be a chemical spill into the sewer and it must have been a 9-11 call. The Fire Department responds to all 9-11 calls and are usually the first on the scene.
I don't know much about the truck though.
We do have an excellent Fire Department in Mississauga.

Dallas Bay protects a rapidly growing area just a bit north of Chattanooga and along the banks of the Tennessee River.  The water system wasn't able to keep up with the growth and this was a cost-effective solution.  Numerous drafting points along the river and lots of 5" to move it to the fire.  I believe they carry 1000' or more on each of their three pumpers.  It works for them!

Both of the apparatus I'm posting today are unique, one-of-a-kind apparatus with interesting histories.

 At first glance, Engine 1844 doesn't seem too special, but it is. Back in 1985, American LaFrance designed a new modular-construction pumper, to be called the Rebel. The prototype was being built on a 1984 Ford C-8000 chassis. Before production could begin, the Elmira factory closed. In 1986, a new company began operations in Bluefield, VA. The Kersey/American LaFrance factory would manufacture the Century 2000, Pacemaker, Pioneer 90 and Patriot model apparatus from 1986-1994. During this transition, the Rebel prototype was moved to Bluefield and completed. It was sold to the fire department in nearby Bluefield, WV. It was the only Rebel ever produced by American LaFrance.  After many years in Bluefield, it was sold to Sale Creek, TN and is still in service at Station 3.

Back in 1974, Syracuse, NY purchased seven Maxi Pumpers from Pierce. Built on Hendrickson 1871S 4x4 chassis, they featured 2000 GPM pumps, 500 gallon tanks, and 55' telescopic aerial devices. These devices were named Hi Stream and built by Highway Trailer Industries of Edgerton, WI.  The only other Hi Stream device was sold to the company's hometown of Edgerton, built by Pirsch on a Ford C Series chassis.  After many years of service there, it was sold to Soddy Daisy, TN and served there for a couple years.  Then it was sold to Sale Creek, TN where it continues to serve at Station 3.

Griffin has the only fire department in Georgia, to my knowledge, that still operates two-piece engine companies.  The Engine runs with a crew of four as the attack piece while the Pumper is a supply rig with only a driver.  This setup is at Stations 1 and 2.  Station 3 staffs a 75' quint and a heavy rescue.

I was surprised to see this new fire truck sitting at a Toms River NJ hotel this morning. :o Took a couple of photos & just did a little research.........it's a Rosenbauer aerial truck from their South Dakota plant according to the paper taped to the window. I figure it's for a local FD and was again surprised that Rosenbauer has a dealer in Toms River.

East Carolina University, home of the Pirates, is located in Greenville, NC. The campus is located in the first due territory of Greenville's Engine 1. Engine 1 is unique in Greenville, partly because it is the only triple-combination pumper in front line service in the City. The other five engine companies are assigned 75' quints. Greenville's only truck company is a 110' quint that shares quarters with Engine 1 and Rescue 1. The University provided funding for the purchase of the current Engine 1, painted in the school colors. ARRRRRGH!

My first fire department has operated this tanker since 1982.  Originally built as a milk tanker, it was mounted on a 1971 International chassis.  In the late 1990's this LTL chassis replaced the International and a few years ago, a Peterbilt replaced the Ford.

Here's another LTL I shot quite a few years ago.  Behind the trailer's compartment doors is a small engine that powers the pump.  Not very many fire apparatus have sleeper cabs!  It has since been retired.

This LTL doesn't look like your typical fire apparatus, but it does serve as one, among other duties.  The Bradley-Prosperity VFD in Bradley, WV is a very unique organization.  Until recently, they had no tax base for funding and had to raise all their money on their own, using a variety of activities.  These included Bingo, carnival rides, a restaurant and a construction company, all operated by the volunteers.  In order to transport the construction vehicles, they also had this rig.  In addition, it could pull an 8,000 gallon water tanker or a mobile command post, built from an Army "cattle car".  Most of the construction equipment was purchased as Army surplus (excavators, bulldozers, 6x6 dump trucks).  The LTL could also be used to recover any apparatus that broke down.

Thanks! I lucked out and had great weather on Sat and Sun for the show. Got rained out on Monday for some other spotting events. I should have checked in with other members to get some hints on where to grab photos.

Post by: GA_Dave on September 07, 2013, 06:51:52 PM
A thought just occurred to me.... (yes, it happens every now and then).  I have been posting photos for a little while now and I use a format for the info that is commonly used by apparatus photographers, but some of you might not understand what I am doing, therefore, here is a brief explanation.

1. The first line is the Unit number and Department name, City name (if different) and State.

2. Next is the year, chassis, and bodybuilder.
 
3. This line has the pump capacity in gallons per minute/water tank size/foam tank size/and aerial length.  Of course, not all rigs have all of these, so a 1250/500/75' is a quint with a 1250 GPM pump, 500 gallon water tank, and a 75' aerial.

4.  This number is the bodybuilder's production number.  Not all apparatus have them, but most do.  It's sort of like a VIN for each rig and it is how I keep track of them. 

If anyone ever has any fire apparatus questions, don't hesitate to ask.  I can usually find the answer pretty quick.

Interesting catch on the Charles County White/GMC, not many of those in Fire Service!! I also thought the Superliner Mack was a awesome unit!

Back in 1962 (I was 3), there was a fire a couple doors down from where I lived in Fredonia, NY. The local VFD arrived with two pumpers and a city service truck. This event began a lifelong fascination with fire apparatus for me. One of those pumpers was a 1953 FWD. It continued to serve Fredonia until replaced in 1986. It was sold to a member of the department who keeps it in his garage and it regularily attends local parades.

Growing up, I was one of those kids who always begged Dad to drive by the fire hall of every town we passed through just so I could check out what they had. As I got older, I would ride my bike from town to town, leaving noseprints on the glass of every fire hall for miles. Since most were VFD's, finding anyone around was a rare treat, but when I did, I would ask hundreds of questions about the rigs inside. It wasn't until 1981 that it occured to me to take photographs of the apparatus that I saw. Why it took me so long, I'll never figure out, but I frequently kick myself for not doing it much sooner.

I never had the opportunity to shoot the '53 FWD before it was retired and I moved to Atlanta in 1985. I've been trying to get a shot of it ever since, but I never seem to be able to time it right when I'm back home. The weather sucks or the owner isn't home or I run out of time and have to leave again. Forty-eight years after that fire, I was finally able to shoot old Engine 10. She has been well cared for by her owner and has never been restored.

Nice shot, Charlie!  I couldn't have done that, I would have had to go inside and ask someone to pull each rig outside so I could photograph it.  According to their website, they have four engines, a platform and a heavy rescue.  Rescue 449, a Spartan/Custom Fire, is on the far right.  To the left is Ladder 447, a KME AerialCat.  These two make up the Ladder Company.  The next rig is one of two KME Excel pumpers, Engines 442 and 443, with the last rig being a Pierce Lance, Engine 445.  The website also shows Engine 441, a Spartan/FMC.  I would have been there at least a half-hour!

Thanks Dave! Of course now I am home sick. The only time I was able to ride on an engine was with my friend. Talked me into hanging out at the RM station one night. Only got one call and it was a vehicle accident. It was a Ford L8000 (Engine 32?), with an open rear compartment, and it was winter time. Still had a blast.

This looks like the station off Middlebrook Pike.

I lived in the Ft Sanders neighborhood when I was in school. Before they built the current interchange downtown, Station 1 would come up 13th street when responding. a battalion chief, 1 or 2 engines, a truck and a medic/ambulance was the typical response. Always was around 2 in the morning seems like.  The truck was a center mounted Sutphen's, with a massive engine and a jake brake. Sounded like a huge bulldozer coming down the street. The E-One replaced it, but looks like it did not last as long as the Sutphens.

Station 9 (2 bay, engine/truck), which was about 6 blocks from my apartment, had the same type set up on their truck as well.

I made several trips to Knoxville to shoot the Bronto during the years that Knoxville had it, but it was in the KFD shop or back at the E-One factory every time.  Apparently, by the time they got the bugs out of it, they sold it to Alcoa.  The Alcoa guys told me that it had not given them much trouble.

Thanks, I enjoyed stopping by the fire house and getting these photos. I go by it most days during the work week because of my P&D job. Thought the blue was unique enough to post. This fire station serves a large industrial park (25,000 acres) where there is much open ground.

11-5-13--On the parking lot behind the Sears ramp at the Los Cerritos Mall 11-5-13

When Nordstrom's built a new store at the other end of the mall several years ago and the old building has never been reoccupied by a major retailer.  It has mostly been used as a temporary facility for stores being remodeled and also for movie and TV shoots.  LA County Fire also used it to practice their tactics.  With what has gone on lately  the first responders in this area did a drill today at the mall.  It included the fire fighters and paramedics and their equipment as well as a large law enforcement presence which I couldn't photograph as the are was barricaded. Eventually all  this equipment moved on down to the tactical area.  Most of the the fire apparatus belongs to LA County Fire Dept who service most cities in the Southeast corner of LA County . The Paramedics are contractors who respond to all 911 calls along with the fire fighter paramedics and provide transport if needed.

I am not sure how many Hawk Extreme rigs Pierce has built.  This is the second one I have photographed.  There are photos of three more that can easily be googled.

After 27 years and 8 months, I have retired from the College Park Fire Department, effective today, December 1, 2013. It has been an exciting, challenging and rewarding career and I have enjoyed being part of the Brotherhood. I thank the Lord for providing me the opportunity and for keeping me safe all these years. It is a young person's job and I am no longer a young person. I leave the City of College Park in the capable hands of my younger Brothers and Sister. May He watch over them as He has watched over me.

Thank you!  I have actually been photographing apparatus longer than I have been a Firefighter!  My interest in apparatus began when a neighbor's garage caught on fire when I was three.  I have been "hooked and laddered" ever since.  I first began taking photos of them in early 1981.  Although I had associations with a couple fire departments previously, I officially became a Firefighter on February 2, 1982 in Brocton, NY.  I was a member there until 1986, right after I began my career at College Park, GA.  From 1987-1993, I also served as a Firefighter in Coweta County, GA.  I have been a volunteer in a volunteer department, a volunteer in a combination department and a paid Firefighter in a paid department.  Although I will no longer be a Firefighter, I will continue to photograph apparatus until I am too old and feeble to hold a camera!  I also have a 1978 Ward LaFrance Patriot pumper that I plan to restore.

I was doing a little plane spotting down at Tampa International Airport last week. Apparently there was a medical emergency at Airside C. The Airport responded with an F-350 Paramedic Squad and the ARFF rig. Tampa Fire and Rescue followed with Engine and Medic 8.

Tampa ARFF 4 is a 2006 Oshkosh Striker 1500 with a 1950 GPM pump, 1500 gallons of water, 210 gallons of foam and 400 pounds of Halotron.  Engine 8 is a Pierce Quantum with a 1500 GPM pump and 500 gallons of water.  I'm not sure on the year.  They have purchased several identical pumpers since 2007.

Barnegat (NJ) Fire Company rig sitting outside the firehouse this afternoon. With all the rain & snow the last few days i don't think this truck will be seeing any duty in the woods soon.

When I was down there last Spring, Engine 30 was running a 2004 E-One Typhoon 1500/1000/30F.  I also shot a 2009 version the same day at Engine 50 and a 2011 Pierce Saber at Engine 40, both with the same specs, so I would guess that this new Typhoon is also the same.

Thanks Dave! I am glad to know they are spec 1000 gal tanks. Most of the areas they cover lack hydrants. They have some good tanker resources through the volunteer departments. I just wish they could increase the staffing on each truck.

The white/yellow scheme was the Hershey standard for quite a few years and has been replaced by the red/black/red.  The two white rigs were purchased by the Volunteers, whereas the Boro has purchased the others.

This is the first White-GMC fire truck I have seen.

Jacksonville had one a few years ago at their Baldwin Station. Not sure if they still have it in service. I want to say it was a crew cab version as well.

I've seen this same chassis badged as a Volvo.  I think it was a matter of who owned who, and when.

One of the traditions of the local volunteer fire departments is to escort Santa through the neighborhoods, passing out candy to the kids. This year Engine 3 had the honor.

Last year we were in St Louis and across from the steak & shake was one of STLFD
engine on the apron. Painter red but with white and blue stripes. Before we could
get some pictures it took off on a run.
Any chance you have any pictures of such an animal.

Thanks

My only visit to St. Louis was back in 1988.  I did shoot a few rigs, but they were white/yellow or all red back then.

The Ford was the first engine I was assigned to when I was hired in 1995.  I asked around and The administrative Captain believes in was a 1980 but not 100% sure.  It was sold at auction in 1997.  The KME was a 1994.  It was totaled in an accident in 2009.  The dealership forgot to set the parking break while servicing it and it rolled down a hill, took out three cars and a building.

I've never been to Alaska, in fact, the farthest north I have been is Minot, ND.  I can only go by photos I have seen.  There are tracked vehicles used for firefighting up there, but there are also more traditional style apparatus used.  Some of them are all-wheel-drive.  I guess it depends on how rural the area is.

So one be able to guess that pumps may be more enclosed and other valves so they do not freeze when coming or going to a fire.

The GT-1 was developed from Spartan Motors' motor home chassis.  I believe the use in the fire service was primarily to reduce the noise levels in the cab.  While a fair number of departments bought one, I can't think of a single one that bought another one.

Spotted this International Forest Service engine #322. It is tied to the Plumas National Forest in northeastern CA. In these parts, green is good, we have a US Forest Service fire station a block from our home.

As always, enjoying your postings on all the trucks Dave. Some of the towns (suburbs) are cool too, I remember Hamtramck as I was to make a pick up of sorts to the (GM) Fisher Body Plant out of that area. That was October 31st of whatever year, the load was delayed, I did not want to hang around as I had heard horror stories of setting the City of Detroit on fire then. Good thing they had Fire Trucks, those were ugly times ::) :(

They certainly were and they haven't gotten much better.  I spent a good part of one day hitting 13 of Detroit's firehouses about 4 years ago.  Luckily, I had a "tour guide" who knew his way around.  The city is in deplarable condition, with burned out houses/apartments all over and no repairs/upkeep/anything being done.  Very depressing!  Hamtramck is a little island surrounded by Detroit and not in much better condition.

Interesting pictures of very sharp fleets as usual Dave, and some of the towns you have visited I have forgotten about-till I see your post-Marine City MI, do they still have the small ferry service from Sombra ON to Marine City? It was a 2 truck-tractor-trailer- or 6 car ferry that used to cross the river from Canada to the US, mostly chemical tankers would sail it as the Ambassador Bridge did not allow tankers to cross, neither could you "slide thru the tube" or tunnel @ Windsor, the Bluewater Bridge would only allow tanker movement at night-with an escort- kind of off topic from Fire trucks but that just came to mind.

Jim.

I don't recall seeing a ferry there, but that doesn't mean there wasn't one!  (I get focused on one thing sometimes.)  I do recall a ferry a bit farther south that went to an island.  There is a fire station on that island and I was going to go, but the ferry had just left when I got there and it would be almost an hour until the next trip.  I chose not to take the time and went elsewhere.

Thanks for the reply Dave, I did not happen to see- or take note for that matter- a Fire Hall @ Marine City, if I had, that Louisville might have been in the forefront, cool tanker! I was a rookie at that time, learning to drive with an O/O, had a tanker on, US Customs officer simply climbed up the ladder real quick, took a look -to see if the Government seal was intact- came down as fast as he went up and told us to have a fine trip. I never got out of the cab nor got asked anything, pretty cool, not that way anymore! I think the Customs officer knew quite well where the Fire Hall was and if not, he sure knew the phone #  ::)

Any idea how large of a FD they have in The Villages Dave? ??? I know the place is huge so i'd expect a pretty big force. Funny but with a place that has their own precision golf cart drill team i'd have thought the fire trucks would be on golf cart chassis. ;D

Post by: GA_Dave on March 06, 2014, 05:28:44 PM
The Villages is a very large development and is growing all the time.  While mostly residential, there are several large commercial areas with stores, restaurants and hotels.  There is also a large amount of wooded areas and they get some pretty large woods fires.  They needed a rig that could get itself anywhere on the property.

The Villages has a career Fire Department, supplemented by a small number of volunteers from the local citizenry, mostly in support roles.  An interesting fact is that none of the career Firefighters live there, they are all too young!  They currently operate from 7 stations, with more being planned.  Two stations operate with 75' quints and there is a 95' platform at another.

When I last visited the Storey County Fire Station at McCarran, NV the men mentioned a new tractor to replace the International 8100 that was used to carry the dozer around. Well here it is running down I-80 towards Reno:

Yes, it is.  Lake County has a couple of these in service as first out engines.  This shot was taken as they were heading out on a run just as we had arrived at their station.

Great additions Dave!! I really like the last one, awesome Mack Tanker along with that T300 tanker, looks to be a 60" spread rear axle on that one, or is it a tag?

Jim

Thanks!  I like that Mack tanker too.  As for the T-300, I didn't look under the rig to see.

Jim

That chassis was very rare in the Fire Service.  Alcoa's are not.  Not only do they look great, they dissipate heat better than steel wheels and heat is the leading cause of brake wear.  It's a big deal in the constant start/stop of fire apparatus driving.  I wouldn't spec a rig without them.

I don't recognize it.  I tried blowing it up to read the door, but the resolution isn't high enough.  Can't make out the plate on the front bumper either.  Can you read anything on the original?

Effingham is mostly a rural county with a fair amount of brush fire activity.  The 6x6 tankers make use of the bumper turrets to fight these fires with only one Firefighter on each one.  As I recall, they have at least three of these rigs.

They seem to be popular in Minnesota, but not so much everywhere else.  A brute of a chassis, but as maneuverable as a battleship!  Not a plus for a fire engine.

For the next couple weeks, I will be on the road and my posts may become sporadic.  Not sure what access I'll have to the internet, nor when I'll have time to post.

I posted one of these rigs back on April 27, 2013 and another on February 3, 2014.  The Furion was "different".  They were smaller than typical custom fire apparatus chassis, more on the scale of a Ford Cargo or a Mack MS-200/Renault/Volvo F7.  The Furion was introduced in the summer of 2007 as a 2008 model and was no longer in production by 2013.  More were used as ambulances and rescue trucks than as actual firefighting rigs.  Since I don't photograph ambulances, I have only shot five Furion apparatus so far.

Thanks Dave, I vaguely remember you had posted them before-I hope I didn't comment the same way then ::)-makes sense now you say, they do look smaller! I have never seen one up here in either Fire or Ambulance application.

East End runs a fleet of six or seven rigs all painted in that blue scheme that they have had for years.  The yellow ALF ladder was only there a short time and has been replaced by a newer blue aerial.

Nice catch on the Ladder 6 Ford!

Jim.

Thanks!  This rig has an interesting history to it.  Back in 1950, the City of Buffalo ordered five tractors from Ward LaFrance, to be used to pull older ladder trailers.  Before they were delivered, it was determined that all five trailers and ladders were in too bad of condition to continue using, so another order was placed for five new 100' ladder trailers.  That contract went to American LaFrance and was filled in 1951.  The five resulting 1950 WLF/1951 ALF Tillers were very unusual, but served Buffalo very well for many years.  After retirement from the BFD, one was sold to North Bailey, where the Ford tractor replaced the WLF.  In 1982, Young Fire Equipment completely refurbished the entire rig which continues to serve to this day.

While I do get around, these photos were taken about two years ago.  I have shot 15,489 fire apparatus since I began in 1981.  Since I joined this forum, I have posted about 1000 of them here.  When I started posting here, I started with rigs I had recently shot, but soon realized that I could not keep up with posting two per day unless I went back in time, so I dropped back to 2007 and have been posting from that time forward. 

The majority of the time, I simply show up at a station and ask them to pull the rigs out for me to photograph.  The few times I have tried to make prior arrangements were not successful, for a variety of reasons.  All volunteer stations are the most difficult, as they are most often unstaffed, but I have had pretty good luck at tracking someone down.  There have been places where I have tried six or eight times before getting my photos.  I am persistant!

LA County fire has about 135 stations.this pumper is a recent addition and replaces an older KME unit that was probably moved to a less active station.

I live 25 miles from where the King Fire is not being almost 100% contained.  Almost 100,000 acres burned and 8,000 fire fighters have been on the scene.  And every hotel on my drive home from work is packed full of rigs from all over the state of California!
