    You guys can play checkers on the side of your rig?!?!?!? NO WAY! I am SOOOOO jealous.




    In all seriousness Jonny, that looks like an awesome rig and if I ever come over to europe I would love to stop by some firehouses to see how its done across the pond.

      Johnny,
      It looks good Bruv, I was over in Dublin late last June when the training was going on for the Tunnel teams. Is the tunnel nearly finished now?

        Tunnel Response Vehicle, our new rig

        For anyone that can remember I posted up before about the New Port Tunnel which travels from the Dublin Docks to the Dublin Airport under the city, and how we had some concerns as to the amout of HGV's going to be going in to it that will be carrying all sort of nasty stuff that can make loud bangs...so the Managment of the Fire brigade said..."Lets all send them to switzerland and get them trained"...so thats what we did and 250 of us headed off for training in the Alps....when we came back and everyone was getting organised for the accident waiting to happend they finaly bought us a new Rig for use within the tunnel...and we get to house it in our station....bringing the manning levels of the station to about 20'ish with 2 trucks, TRV, Ambulance and District Officer (Battalion Chief)

        So here's a few Pictures of our new rig fully equiped with 12 New Dreagar PSS 100 Twin Cylinder Extended Duration sets, with 14 spare cylinders in a bank, 3 tanks Water, Foam Class A, Foam Class B, Termal imaging, Telemetry Bodyguard System for Crew monitoring while in the fire, Mini Foam Monitors for both Hand and ground use (Like Gattling Guns)



        Rear View...a normal Appliance Heigth Finishs just above the Pump bay doors...so u can see its a big rig

              Why is the time so screwed up that after reading Jonny's post, mine appears before his?

                You cant see the pics ???

                And yes the gremlins are in the house...been trying to post up the pics now for 3 days with no response...!!!

                The rig istelf is big alrigth, its bigger than a Ladder, the chassis is about 5 foot longer than a normal truck and about 4 foot higher than one, the cab itself has 12 BA sets rigged to go and there's seats in front of 6 of them so you just sit back into the set and harness yourself up....but comfortable with lots of room 4-5 people could sit in the back along one seat

                      Yea Steve it should be finished in a few months a far as I'm aware and we get the use of the tunnel for 3 months before it goes live so I'm sure there's gona be alot of training and drill's within those months, at least we get to really see the extent of what were going to be dealing with

                        Water Suport Unit???

                        Is that a tanker (slash "tender") or an LDH hose carrier?
