Spotted this at the WC Police Academy, looks like it hauls the robot and at least one bomb suit that I could see. Pictures are a little crappy, but the lighting wasn't great in the gym where its parked, and there wasn't anyone to pull it out for us.

I saw the Bomb Squad office downstairs and the large garage outside, I assumed there were other rigs around the campus, but we, for obvious reasons, were not allowed to poke around. What else does SOD do other than Bomb Squad? Aviation and SWAT or what?

That is the old one. Not sure what they use that one for now. The new one is MUCH bigger, nicer and is parked in the Special Ops Garage at WCPD HQ.

I don't know, but there is DEFINITELY a robot and a suit in that truck, so maybe its a second piece or reserve unit?

Their primary vehicle is a 2004 E-One Cyclone II heavy rescue, with built in command post and robot stowage compartments. I've always tried to get photos of it, but never succeed. Maybe someone here has one they can post.

This picture is of a brand new truck not an old one. Like Tommy said this is primary and the E-One is secondary. Easier to maneuver and use then the big one.

Big one still much cooler AND has a roto-ray! However this truck looks well suited for everyday use.........

Thanks Scod your right on. The new "rapid response" vehicle can handle the vast majority of calls. The E-One will still respond on major jobs and with two outfitted trucks, the squad can respond to two calls at once. (Yes it has happened before). The BS responds to a multi-county area and for those of who live in dutchess... despite the fact that you guys and gals can make it door to door in 45 mins (lol), the E-One takes much longer going north on the TSP.
