    "Ditto" on Northeast Fire News, and here's another one I like: Central New York Fire Trucks. It used to be just Oneida, Herkimer, and a few other counties, now it's the entire state, even a few from the "Big Apple."

    In the late Seventies, I belonged to a couple of departments near Rome and Utica. The CNY site has pics of two or three of the trucks from when I was there.
    I left my old dept. here in Maine in 2000, and sometime before that, I picked up one of those "quality used fire apparatus" newspapers, and saw a pumper for sale that had belonged to one of the NY depts. I had been on. I had driven it for training one night, the first time I ever drove a vehicle with a diesel engine and air brakes.
    Kind of a shocker to see it retired, when I was still doing the same stuff as I did twenty-something years before. [​IMG]

    Do you draft often? Because I noticed the suction hose on the front, ours is an 5" supply line with a stortz. If we draft, we pull along side the water supply:
    The aerial in the first pic, is that 75 or 100'

    And to the OP, would you like to see a specific truck,
    Eg. Rescue, aerial, haz mat, pumper, tech rescue, or just anything?

    Yes, I have been there a few times. We had a table there a few years back to get rid of a bunch of STUFF. It is not a real big event, mostly older things. If you have something specific you are looking for it may be there. I would not go our of my way to go.

    We draft 95% of the time. We have only 8 hydrants in our first due area. The engine is 1000 gallons and the tanker is 3000. We place the fold a tank in front of the engine, swing in the suction and go to work.
    That is a E-One 105' aerial.
