Quoting Matt Stoltz Nice truck Bob but I'm just curious why does Battalion 1 have 2 squads and Battalion 2 and 3 only have 1???? Nice truck though. Nice to see LED on your trucks; )
The only reason why Engine 5 has a squad body is because it didn't look right with the shorter body and the long, Lance cab. Plus, the First Battalion is the largest battalion, so there's more highways and larger buildings.

Not completely. My squad can support either.

Quoting Andrew P I hate to butt in to the conversation but I found it interesting lol; it's interesting that you stick to only 1750gpm or higher, as a lot of the manufacturers seem to be trending toward the 1500 range. Around where I live (northern Ohio) 1500 is the standard, 2000gpm is rarely seen. In the lego twp. department are your engines simply pumpers or would you use them for extrication and other calls? (if you haven't noticed my department is centered around an all "rescue engine" fleet)
All my engine companies, except Engines 5, 7, 9 and 11 are strictly pumpers. In houses where there are 2 engine companies, I have one engine set up as a Squad (as is the case with Engines 7, 9 and 11), These companies act as a truck company when a truck company is not available or is not on location yet. They assist truck comapnies with ventilation and search. The squad companies do carry limited extrication equipment as well, such as jaws and cutters. There is also some cribbing on board. Ultimately, they have a scaled down amount of extrication equipment, compared to the rescue companies, who will have a complete assortment of extrication equipment. At the same time, my Squad companies, since they are pumpers, have their own first due districts as well and may act as strictly a pumper. Engine 5 is the only single engine company house with a squad style body. The only reason I did that is because of the long Lance cab. When I built it with the body like Engine 1, the truck did not look right. The longer squad body balanced out the look of the apparatus.

PUC is my go to for Squad Engines because they are not all "pump" but focus on space for equipment.

I understand. My department can accommodate anything from 1000 gpm. Although the PUC can accommodate 1500 gpm which is what my PUC does. I don't think you should really care about the pump on a squad engine because a squad engine is mainly a rescue in my dept.

So you use your Squad Engine to support a rescue company rather than suppoting a truck company?

Actually, a PUC would not work in my department at all. PUC's cannot accomodate pumps of 1750 GPM or higher. All LTFD apparatus with pumps have at MINIMUM 1750 gpm pumps, with the exception of the brush truck. And believe me, I have plenty of room for equipment, even though they may appear to be all pump.

Quoting Andrew P just a random thought...becuase it looks like this rig has a rescue pumper body, I have to say I think a PUC would be a great replacement
Hmmm. Well, maybe Pierce will come by with a demo PUC one day for the LTFD to look at. ; )
