Squad 3 is a 2012 Pierce Impel PIC Squad Engine. Squad 3 has a feature never before seen in the LFC on a truck of its kind, which is an in-compartment pump. This PIC pump puts out 1250 GPM and is manufactured by Pierce. Squad 3 responds to all types of emergencies, from structure fires to car fires to MVAs to Haz-Mat calls. S-3 carries standard Engine Co. equipment, basic Truck Co. equipment, extrication and stabilization tools, and more. Squad 3 responds with a crew of 5

The nickname for Squad 3 comes from one of my personal idols, Teddy Roosevelt. Teddy led his 1st US Volunteer Cavalry, the "Rough Riders", into battle in the Spanish-American War.


Squad 1 and Squad 3 together. They are the only two Pierce trucks in the department.

**NOTES**
I had an awesome time designing and building this rig. I used some of the details of my own rig, Topsfield Engine 3, to design the Impel cab. Some of these features can be found in the front floodlight, side cab emergency light, turn signal, and roof windows. It's one of my favorite trucks and it'll be sticking around for a long time!

Quoting Thomas Johnson Fantastic job! But it's not the first with an in compartment pump. Tom D. has done it before on his PUCs.
Do you know what PUC stands for? If not, it stands for Pierce Ultimate Configuration, or "Pump Under Cab". As I pointed out, PIC stands for Pump In Compartment. PIC and PUC are two different things. In PUC units, only the pump panel is in a compartment, and intakes/discharges are under the rear of the cab/front of the body. In PIC units, the entire pump, including intakes/discharges as well as panel, is in the compartment.

Quoting Andrew P Not bad, not bad at all. My question, though, is why anyone would choose to have the hose connections in a compartment when you could have a perfectly good PUC :)
I'm not a fan of how it looked with the PUC pump. I tried side-mount, top-mount, PUC standard, PUC top-mount... nothing I liked. So now I tried this and I love it!
