About this creation
So I completely ditched the idea of an urban interface engine. It didn't seem to practical for my department to have, and seeing how Battlebrick Heights' rescue company was cut for budget issues, I decided to build a rescue engine for Engine 1. Engine 1 is a 2011 Ferrara Ignitor rescue pumper. The rig has a 1750 gallon per minute pump, a 750 gallon water tank, and two twin 30 gallon foam cells (30A/30B). There are custom tool mountings and all LED lighting with the exception of the two rear roatators. The front bumper has a Federal Q2B, a locomotive bell, a tool box for a preconnected combi-tool, and Grover airhorns. The body features all roll up doors and SCBA bottle cylinders. In the rear there is internal ladder storage for a 14FT roof ladder, 24FT extension ladder, and a 10FT closet ladder, also in the rear is an arrow stick. Other features include a raised roof, a covered hose bed, red rims, a 10KW harrison generator, a mounted hydraulic pump for the TNT rescue tools, a MARS light on the nose of the rig, a Whelen Pinoneer brow light, an extended cab, and a booster reel mounted above the pump panel. Engine 1 is staffed with a driver, a lieutenant, and three firefighters. It responds on all rescue calls until a new unit for Engine 5 is aquired. While some people (including myself) while debate the quality of a Ferrara, I still think they look pretty cool, so that is why this unit was brought to life.

As much as I hate Ferraras (and if you stick around I'm sure you'll hear it more), this is a very nicely built engine!

Quoting Michael Morrison Awesome job Tim! I really like this rig. Also, if you wanted to have all LED lighting on the rig, LED rotator lights actually exist. My dad's department's new engine has a set.
Yeah, the neighboring town to me retrofitted there 91 Pierce Arrow with all LED lighting and it has them in the rear, they look a little goofy, so i went with the traditional rotators. Thank you though!

Quoting BrickCity101 11 Cool! How come you didn't add a ladder?
It has internal ladder storage which can be accessed via the rear compartment.
