            You didn't find anything wrong that they had to take it back and delay it for a bit longer, eh? Nice truck man, big ol' thing.

              Very impressive tanker. Looks like no details left out....where's the kitchen sink?

                Only a couple issues

                Waiting on rest of 5" LDH - the short lengths came in, waiting on the 100' lengths.

                Problem with some of the pump panel lights

                Biggest issue - Wrong type of Stortz adapters on the steamers. The hose we have in has the normal 2 lug stortz.

                The adapters on the steamers are all a 3 lug stortz - never have seen this type before (normally 2 lugs). Nothing like a square peg in a round hole. Stole officerside piston intake off our engine and out on rear suction to get it in service.

                One cool thing we added - a 2nd primer which is setup to allow you to prime your suction infront of the gate valves on the driverside and rear side. Allows you to fill suction line before you open the valve. Have a swivel ordered for rear suction to make a beaver tale for quick drafting.

                Nice to have a tanker the goes straight (old one felt like the rearend was trying to pass the front) and has brakes.

                  We found out on ours (on it's first fire, mind you) that they crossed the linkages on two of the discharges. When you pulled Discharge 1, #2 opened and vice versa. Gave up waiting on them to deal with it so we got in there and swapped them out ourself.

                  I can't say as I've ever seen 3-lug storz, either. Interesting. At least it's there and in service.

                    Did Candid Camera put that truck together Mike? That would have made for good footage.

                      The swapped up discharges wasn't near as funny as when a certain member who is a certified driver/operator and a driver/engineer on his career department couldn't figure out why in the world the LDH discharge wouldn't open. Kinda forgot that those have the slow-open/close valves.

                      I jerked on that thing a dozen times before it hit me. If we ever get to buy another new truck, it's getting specced with a wheel valve on the LDH discharge to preven that sort of embarassment.

                        I've been waiting to dig this topic back up for a long time!

                        Today we distributed our new fire gear to each of our firefighters which we received with a 2006 AFG grant. Here we are also posing in front of our 2006 Pierce Dash CAFS Rescue/Pumper which we received from a 2004 award. Maybe I can show you my gear washer in a few weeks, and hopefully it will be sitting next to 2007's Cascade and Fill Station!

                          SLY,

                          Nice to see a bunch of smiling firefighters with their new equipment. Which of the motley crew is you.....let me guess....you're taking the photo.

                          Sharp looking engine.......interesting color scheme.

                          I guess you guys are no longer singing the "Blues".

                              Based on your helmet shields the rank structure is:

                              Chief Officers.....all white/blue numbers
                              Firefighters........all blue/white numbers

                              White/blue center...?
                              Blue/white center...?

                              would be lieutenants & captains or something else?
