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

    would be lieutenants & captains or something else?
    Some people were missing for the photo, but here's how I did it.

    FIREFIGHTERS: Black front/blue insert/white letters
    LIEUTENANTS/CAPTAIN: White front/blue insert/white letters
    CHIEF OFFICERS: White front/white insert/blue letters
    EMS OFFICERS: Blue front/white insert/blue letters

      I think I'm starting to see a little bit of a pattern here. You guys don't like white do you?

      I am actually curious, is blue school colors or something? Just curious where it comes from.

          more info

          It is a quick attack / mini-pumper. It's actually replacing our brush unit and an older front mount pumper that we have. It's going to be very busy when we get it in service. We're going to run our first responders out of it as well.
          We'll run it first out on first responder, grass fires, and anything else that we no could be tight for our bigger engines. (We're pretty rural so we have some bridges, etc that have pretty drastic weight reductions in the winter months.) Structure fires it will mostly run the fill site unless we send it to the scene to utilize the foam.
          Let me know what else you would like to know about the truck. I have tons of other pictures if you want to see anything else about it.

          *********** How much does the beauty cost??? I would love specs and information on this style truck to apply on next year's grant......we could use a vehicle like this.....

          thanks,

            Gotta bring this topic back up to the top again as promised:

            Just finished installing our Milnor Gear washer/extractor which I got with the 2006 grant with 30 sets of gear we received posted above. Just a few days later, I got 2007's award delivered: Our Bauer Unicus III complete air fill system. (Cascade/compressor/fill station with a reel)

            Total cost out of pocket for this year's award was $2,175 for the air fill system. We have relied on other departments to fill our SCBA for our entire history and have never had even so much as a bottle system to refill. This is a welcome addition to our station!

              Sly, after you get some use out of the washer, let us know what you think about it. We are in the process of building a new station and are gonna be putting a laundry in it for the gear.

                Sly,
                The equipment looks great, you should be very excited about the new stuff. I just received the grant for the same air compressor/fill station and looking to go for a washer for next year. Any chance to get a copy of your narrative on the washer unit.

                  gear washer

                  Congrats on your award. Looks great!!! Our department didn't think it necessary to take pictures of our grant purchase so you'll have to close your eyes and try hard to imagine 56 complete SCBA, 56 extra bottles, 55 extra facepieces and 3 complete RIT packs.

                  We've had the same gear washer for about six years and not had to do a single thing to it since it was installed except change the hose one time from the chemical pump to the washer. (They recommend changing every six months due to corrosion and stuff.) We run ours at least once a day on light stuff and run several sets of gear through it several times a month. 50+ active firefighters on over 1,000 calls/year are hard to keep clean. It's a great machine.... I hope you have as good of luck with it that we have.

                    Rescue / Pumper

                    Here are some pictures of our rescue pumper and rescue tools that we took delivery in 2004. The grant was from 2003.

                        2007 Project

                        No one told the cadet not to wash the truck on the tarmack before pictures and obviously the photographer sucks because he didn't notice our AC's finger in my ear! But this is some (not all) of us in our shiny new gear.

                          Here's our brand new gear courtesy of this year's AFG (yeah, some of them were too lazy to put on their bunkers for the picture...jeesh):



                          And here's our new rescue tools we got with a state grant:



                          Our new tanker from AFG is on the way...should have pics within a few months!

                                Here are some picures of our turnout gear washer and dryer and breathing air compressor. This was all from the AFG.
