      The fleet looks great, Paulo!

  6. The Crew

    This is great regarding positions and operations, however we do things a little differently here. For the most part, most towns here in PR are covered by a single engine company, and these are typically configured with a 2 door cab, with only two fire fighters on duty. Due to staff issues the two firefighters assigned to the engine will usually have to be on scene handleing a fire for a good 30-40 minutes before a second due engine arrives, if there is anyone to man it the town next over. In these cases, the rolls are split almost 50/50. The driver can either be a firefighter or officer, and will operate the apparatus while performing officer duties on the fire scene. Then the second man would be the nozzleman/hydrant man. In these cases a defensive attack on the fire is taken until backup arrives and a search can be done. I have even heard of times when a single officer is on duty and has to operate a scene for a good 30 minutes before a second unit arrives.
  7. The site is looking great!

      Harrison- Yeah, just kinda reworded what you said. I thought they stopped manufacturing there but I guess Pierce went back to the Saber and commercial chassis production there. All Pierce units do travel to the Bradenton plant for all pump related work besides placing it on the body. Medtec used to manufactured from there until they shutdown.

  10. RIP to both firefighters killed in Toledo, very sad news.

      Paulo R.

      Dakota

      The green card ads should be gone, I switched providers because that one had terrible ad quality. Now all the adverts should be somewhat relevant depending on your cookies and also from reputable companies

      Don't forget the Bravest! It was filmed around 1999-2000, that's really like "Cops" for firefighters!

    3. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Okay, the fire department I was thinking of doesn't allow members to film on the job, except with helmet cams, to prevent interference with their job. After watching a few vids from Tampa, I would love for them to come to Jacksonville or Clay county and do a series!

    4. Jackeatley

      The british series had its moments, but yeah I hope this stuffs funnier.

      Darn shame, I would have thought the 9/11 museum would have taken it for sure!

      Actually, I don't think it's in the wrong category, I think it's just the wrong photo and drawing PDF. The description and details describe a tractor-drawn rescue with a crane.
