  • Ocfa e-18

    The volunteer department that I am with purchased a Type 2 Urban/Interface engine from Orange County Fire Authority, engine 18. A number of brackets and holders were obtained with the truck. If there is any OCFA engineers or firefighters that have a list or pictures of what was stocked in the different compartments, it would be greatly appreciated. Yes I realize that we can hang our own shelves and stock it the way we want, but why re-invent the wheel?

    Why don't you try contacting them? Here's their link, it'll probably be a lot quicker than posting in a forum and hoping they stumble on your thread.

      Sounds like a road trip to me. Take a camera.

          Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

          "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


          Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

            I followed "firefightinirish217" 's advice and sent Orange County an email requesting information as to what had been stored in the cabinets... No reply.

            Maybe one of the forum members might have an idea as to what an Urban Interface truck might carry to be effective at both tasks. I have found listings for Pumpers (ISO Mitigation list and Fire Service Pump Operator: Principles and Practice), and equipment that is carried on some Pumper/Heavy Rescue units listed here on the forum.

              Put down the mouse for a while and get a pencil and paper , Think about how YOUR dept. operates - (does the engine roll with always a full crew ? Later POV responce? How far apart are your hydrants ? Do you anchor and fight or bump and go ? Hundreds of questions that only you can answer. What makes an effective "urban interface engine" for you , may be totally different for the next county or for that matter the next department over.
              Like some of the others have said , take a road trip and visit - talk to the crew , ask them what they liked and disliked about the setup, then quizz them about how they operate. Because again what was handy for them , may not fit your tactics.
              ?

                I agree with stocking it with how your FD runs. If you decide, that you definitely want it to be an Urban Interface Rig send me a P.M. and I can suggest some needed equipment.

                  OCFA Engines

                  Hello, Not sure if this helps you at all, but here are some photos of the OCFA Type 1 engines. I am the vendor that supplies the Respond Ready (www.respondready.com) product that helps maximize the storage layout of firefighting equipment and happened to have these pics handy. Wish I had some of the Type 2. Thanks, Dale

                    Well.............I did the outfitting of the compartments on those engines when they were new.

                    If you want to contact me and send some pictures of the brackets, etc in question I can probably help you out a little.

                    Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of the original outfitting and there were numerous changes to the compliment and equipment upgrades over the years.
