    That thing is incredible. Reminds me of Orange CA tillered rescue. Looks like they spent a lot of time thinking it out. It also has to be one of the most organized rigs I a have ever seen.

    Also--does anyone know what FDNY ladder c.o.s carry for rescue equipment? I thought I read they have a set of jaws and what not.
    Your right the Orange,ca rig is a beast!!!!

Aside from the obvious benefit of a large monetary savings we were looking for any pros or cons about this concept. Our district is not busy enough to devote a full-time staff to either piece of apparatus. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
      Our tower is heavy rescue capable. We pretty much have the same compliment of rescue equipment as the Eden Tiller. There are so many pros, and no cons that I can think of. You just have to make sure your truck staff is Heavy Rescue trained.

        There is the link to Squad 6 in Orange, CA. That is the only tillered squad I have ever seen. Would love to see the equipment they carry on that beast.

          The Raliegh/Durham area of NC has several "city service aerials". Cary, NC is specing out 2 currently. The other I remember is Durham Highway FD. Try www.firenews.net, they have a extensive list of NC departments. As for the Rescue Ladder, we currently have two on order. They are ALF 105' tractor-drawn aerials. They are designed to supplement our 2 heavy rescues and respond in their place if needed. Our other Truck companies will have a multi-tool, ram, sawzall and some other basic stuff and the theirs will back them up. But since out Rescues are also or Technical Rescue Team will are building in the tillers as a redundant back up.

                    My FD has two heavy rescue companies (heavy squads) and four truck companies, two of which are designated as "truck-squads". They carry extrication and limited rescue equipment. They are dispatched as a squad when a heavy squad is not avaliable to respond.

                    A small career department I am familar with runs the concept you are refering to. They carry standard truck equipment as well as rope rescue, water rescue, extrication and trench panels/cribbing/shores on the rig. I tried to attach the pics but the file is too large. If you are interested get me your e-mail and I will send them to you direct.

                            I have seen it, but not the equipment, it is a beast though. I remember someone joking on how they ordered a ladder, ripped out the ladder and added more storage, IN 24 HOURS. I know its a legend, but it would be pretty cool if thats whats history was.

                                All three of our Ladder Companies have heavy extrication tools on board consisting of a power unit, spreader, cutter, combo tool and 2 Rams. TL2 also has a small compliment of HP lifting bags. TL2 is a 95, scope.
