awesome. You think you could get some more pics of it.
Neat stuff. I did not know that the UH-60 platform had moved to the civilian sector.lafd55 said:Not car, truck, suv, ambulance, etc but something rather interesting that is really popular out in California... LA County Fire Department's fleet of Sikorsky "Firehawk" helicopters used for SAR and wildland firefighting.
Not really.... The first UH-60 outfitted with an external tank was an Oregon National Guard Blackhawk leased to LA County for a little while(actually it was painted in the white and yellow scheme, but once returned it was repainted olive drab). They technically still haven't gone civilian yet... LA just has the money to spend on them.Steve0625 said:Neat stuff. I did not know that the UH-60 platform had moved to the civilian sector.

That looks like a damn concrete pumper.Bonanno said:Looking on a NJ Firefigthing website found this gem. VERY odd, and unique, BUT looks like it works great for them
This apparatus has a 10-man HME cab, a Marion body, and a 115' SCHWING aerial that has 4 articulating booms. A distinguishing mark this apparatus has is that it is the first apparatus to be manufactured by SCHWING, America for a municipal fire department in the United States. It took 7 years to design this piece of equipment. It was delivered in 1997. This unit will reach out 73 feet horizontally at the third story level (41 feet). Due to its versatility, it will serve equally as well within our residential area by being able to set up on an 8% grade and in cramped conditions, operating with single side stabilization. Here are a few more pictures.
Fairfax County, VA and Montgomery County, MD both have roll-off pods.philyumpshus said:I've seen pictures of at least one FDNY Mack that had roll-off containers. I don't know what it was used for but the truck isn't very old (maybe a 2003?). Pierce had their unit that went in the back of a HD pickup; I think it had wildland, rescue, and other modules. I don't think it ever sold well, though.
Other than the FDNY rig, I haven't seen roll-offs in the US but the tech. rescue guys in Austria use them as well. They have containers for structural collapse, dump bodies, vacuum tanks with pumps, and a box for all the rigging that goes with their 60 ton crane.
As does Howard County, Maryland - we have a pod for collapse, one for MCI and two (I believe) on the way, along with a second transport unit (to replace our original emergency support vehicle [ESV]).Travelin Man said:Fairfax County, VA and Montgomery County, MD both have roll-off pods.
Yeah. I will have to keep my eye out for when it's out and get some pictures of it.Phillyrube said:Chesapeake Station 7...did you see the old C95 Mack squeezed into the left bay?
Bet you were ducking out on the expressway toll...heheheheh.
They still have it if I'm not mistaking. I swear I've seen them within the last coupletheolog said:Have a happy time on the OBX, did ya? Frisco FD had (has?) a crazy looking pickup with a utility body and ground ladders mounted all over it, and Hatteras village used to have an E-One 4-wheel-drive mid-mount 55-foot ladder/squirt on a International Chassis. I can't find pics of either, but they're definitely worthy of this thread.
