  2. HACK ALERT HACK ALERT HACK ALERT

    (copied and pasted from Facebook)

     

    May I have your attention please:
    I recently received messages from some members of this group (and the LFC in general), who shall remain unnamed, asking why I sent them certain messages. I also received notifications that some people "accepted" my request to message them.
    After reviewing said messages, I do not recall sending a single one, and believe I have been hacked.
    With that said - if anyone received a message from me at any point asking for personal information, or if you're affiliated with (insert company, brand, etc.), it was not from me. I have never sent such a message, nor do I have reason to.

    I post here as, due to a reason or reasons I cannot explain, it seems mainly members of emergency-service related groups were sent these suspicious messages.

    I apologize for any inconvenience.

      My sincerest apologies for attempting to let people know there's hackers that seem to be targeting members of emergency service groups around. I'm not the only one.

      You're welcome for my useless input, and despite popular belief, I cannot see through my screen into your actions, I am way to 1986 to have obtained a crystal ball, and honestly I don't have the willpower to make everything I do revolve around you, I am sorry for that flaw in my character, I will take no efford in fixing this.
      And I forgive you for giving the community zero proof, or give any credibility of this said hacking.

      This definitely sounds like the Russians!

  3. When you could've made almost $400 but YouTube keeps changing their ad policy every 5 seconds 

  4. Anyone know of any control boxes that you can somehow hook multiple lights with cigarette lighter adapters up to?

  5. If a staff member of the LFC blog could contact me (I'm not 100% who the staff is) that would be great.

      Will do. Watch out for brickvillagefd@gmail.com in your inbox, please.

  6. New rig in the gallery. Unfortunately EB's upload system is flawed so some information may be missing and some photos may not be cropped properly. Hint hint nudge nudge, admins.

  7. So I am looking to get rid of about 30 rigs. I will be putting them up on EBAY in the next day or two.If anyone is interested in any before I put them up, let me know

      Just looking to dump some extra rigs I have. Looking to get some cash to buy some classic comic books.  Anything  on my moc. Pages with the yellow stripe is up for sale

  8. Low- and Reduced-Profile maneuvers. Hell on earth.

  9. Appears several people have joined the site, but 'Total Members' and 'Newest Member' aren't updating 

  10. Difference between lot and item on BL? Help?!

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Lot as in “Super lot”? It usually means you have to purchase the entire listed “lot” rather than 1 or 2 individual parts.

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      No. I'm trying to price out a rig for a friend and BL sellers' pages say they have x-amount of items in x-amount of lots, with so many matching lots. Not sure what the difference is.

  11. A Tisket a Tasket - EB's hit the trash basket

    or so it seems. This place is dead.

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      You got some vitals and confirmation from a physician?

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Not sure where you're from but in my area we don't need Dr. confirmation to bag & tag

  15. Forgot to submit contest rigs. Darn. 

  16. New rigs coming!!

  17. I need to get around to posting on here more

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Yes, you do.

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Well get to it lol

  18. What's the absolute most reliable way to get parts for new rigs? PAB doesn't have the necessary parts and BL is either way too expensive or inconsistent in both price and parts in stock

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Bricks and pieces via Lego is better than PAB, the selection is more up to date and often has the common fire builder parts. 

      For bricklink, you need to join the site as a buyer and create a wanted list of the parts you’re trying to find. The site will compile a list of the parts and the sellers that have the most of your wants in their store, which narrows down your search drastically. I don’t believe you can narrow the stores by payment method though so you’ll probably want to open a paypal account as well. (Helpful hint, don’t allow notifications for wanted parts postings unless you like sifting and deleting email all day!)

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Yeah that's what I've done with the wanted list. I've also got PayPal. It's just hard with all the inconsistent store stocks

  19. So I did a check on the cost of an Ascendant and the 107 single axle model with a PUC runs just over the one million dollar mark. If the truck is smaller than a tandem axle, why does it cost more? I’m sure the PUC is an expensive upgrade as well but man!

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      You also have to take into account that the aerial has as many as 7 feet on a tandem aerial. Also, the internal parts are probably much stronger due to the fact that the weight is supported by one axle instead of 2.

  20. Anyone know if Pierce could/would do a dual steer axle on a tiller?

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Dual steer on the trailer axle? Not likely, it’d be to difficult to maneuver and hurt the effectiveness of the tiller. You’d get the same ability to turn like the standard tiller but likely not as sharp and the weight would be effected having a second axle, reducing valuable storage space.

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      I'm less concerned with effectiveness of the tiller and more interested simply in whether someone would actually make it

    3. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Short answer- no, they would not. 

      Long answer- no, they would not because it’s ineffective.

  21. Keep in mind tonight and likely through the holidays, the brave men and women from dozens of SoCal fire departments are battling intense wildfires across SoCal. They do not falter, they do not waver, they continue to fight to protect hundreds of thousands of people and their homes this holiday season, and likely will not return home for Christmas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers brothers.

  22. Happy Birthday Josh! 21 and ballin 😎 

  23. First Ascendant Ladder for the First Coast and actually serving the  first coast area-

    Pierce St Johns County Fire Rescue, FL 30820

     

  24. Well, happy thanksgiving to anyone still on here. Hope you enjoy the day with family and friends. Don’t forget about those working and serving to keep our country and community safe.

      Happy thanksgiving to you too!
