    After we sent another thread off topic I figured I'd start a thread for fire trucks. There are many of us here that are volunteers and career firefighters, so post them up, with some info if you wish.
    Here goes:
    Taylor Twp Fire/Rescue, Kokomo, Indiana; Taylor Township is located 48 miles north of Indianapolis along US-31 in Howard County. TTFR provides Fire, Rescue, and BLS protection to it's 23 square mile district. WE are an all volunteer department.
    Engine 81 - 1994 Pierce/Saber Top-Mount Pumper - 1000gpm/1000gal:
    Engine 82 - 2006 Spartan/Elite Rescue Pumper - 1500gpm Hale Q Max pump /1000gal:

    Rescue 81 - 1997 Ford E-350/Marque Type III - Light Rescue
    While this may look like an ambulance, this rig is all rescue. The tall doors behind the cab give access from both sides to
    three additional FF seats. The rear of the truck includes a slide-out tray with various extrication equipment on it.
    Tanker 81 - Chevrolet Kodak/Starr Stainless - 2000 gallon tank
    Brush 81 - 1997 Dodge Ram/Wildfire Manufacturing - 5 Horse Power Pacer Pump/120gal

    Wow, nice rescue. Wish we had something better, the one we have is too small and too overloaded.
    There are a few departments around here that use old deuces for thier brush rigs too.
    Are you paid or volunteer?
