  1. Lots going on there in Chester!
  2. What did this replace? Interesting they went the commercial cab route.
  3. Isn't New City's 9"tanker" a 2011. Why would they replace it already? I understand they might be frustrated with Pierce, but is there something specific with this apparatus other than it really isn't a tanker (LOL).
  4. Great idea! Reduce, re-use, recycle!
  5. The brochure has the outriggers out to 18' and the single jack in the middle rear for the single axle. They also have it on a tandem axle with a 16' spread, but 2 Jack's in the rear.
  6. Putting an engine on the lawn is one thing, but an aerial is another story. You better make sure the ground is solid before raising the ladder/tower especially with a firefighter on the end of it.
  7. Makes it easier when they don't have to face the winter or the notoriously deplorable road conditions of the American northeast!
  8. Might make it safer for ff's getting in/out with turn out gear and getting equipment. Especially for shorter ff's.
  9. This is a big issue where I live. Even rent for a crappy, rathole apartment is too high and pushes the younger members out of the community.
  10. I wish I subscribed to the WSJ to finish this article. Sadly, it's happening all over with volunteer companies.
  11. Glad nobody wa hurt. I wonder when the truck was last inspected/certified, not that failure can never be truly predicted. I hope they don't expect full price of trade-in value when their new truck comes in. Lol!
  12. I like the disclaimer about having to decommission the emergency equipment.
  13. Thanks!
  14. It takes time to train on a new piece of equipment. Driver training is especially important. Those sutphens have a very wide swing in the rear when turning. No need to rush it into service if people can't drive/operate/position it correctly.
  15. What does that stand for?
