Its called an I-Zone Hook.. Very popular on the west cost (I have seen about 6 different versions).

They use it when confronted with a wildfire that threatens multiple homes, when they need to hose down an exposure, then move 1,000 feet up the road to cover another one. They just loop the hose over it like it was a garden hose, then move up the road. Much faster than repacking or rolling it.

We do not have that issue here, but we go out on the highways, and instead of repacking it while out on the road, much safer to get off the highway sooner, and repack it somewhere safe (or warm or dry, etc.).

Also if the last 50 or 100 feet is dirty, its easy to hose it (and the rig off) before packing it back in the bed.

Here is another style:

That was the 1st time it rained. Sorry if you missed it.

Note: nothing leaked, so we are starting on a good note.

I'm sure there won't be a wet down but I'm sure the guys on north ave. wouldn't mind if any enthusiast stopped by to take a look. Great bunch of guys!

What no wetdown? You mean no bringing half million/million dollar apparatus from all around the county away from their jurisdiction just to spray each other with hoses and the siren pedals pegged for 10 mins? shucks..... :rolleyes:

E22 is not a squad,it is an engine and acts as such. It has extra compartment space and equipment (primarily hazmat) to be used as needed. Station 2 is considered part of Squad 2 in the WCSOTF.

Of course, all municipalities go out to "Bid" (and we all know how that process works :ph34r: ) and the bid normally is awarded to the Lowest Bidder (provided that more than 1 manufacturer bids on a specific bid request). With New Rochelle, I would suspect that heavy emphasis would be placed on a manufacturer who has had recent success of providing the city with Fire Apparatus, whose "In Service Up-Time" is well above the average (which would make obtaining Parts and keeping the rigs in service much easier). Thus, I would "suspect" (and I certainly might be wrong) that the same manufacturer that has recently supplied New Rochelle with Engine Company 21, 22, 23, and 25 (Spartan/Smeal) would be the vendor of choice (lowest bid dependent, of course)

E25 is a 2008 Pierce Arrow.
