  1. So, in about 2 years I'll be eligible for the county police test, but the physical component requires a 1.5 mile run. I'm about 2 and a half minutes off the necessary mark; any suggestions to improve it?

      Keep up the cardio and you should have it down by the time you have to test.

  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.

      Just saw the moderator list on the site, nevermind, lol. Still would like someone to contact me.

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

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

  9. 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.

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

    or so it seems. This place is dead.

      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

  13. Forgot to submit contest rigs. Darn. 

  14. New rigs coming!!

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. If y'all could pleaaaseee subscribe to my YouTube account that would be awesome!!!!

      It's all emergency services!!

  18. There needs to be a GoFundMe but for Lego.

    I simply have too much going on right now to spend more money on it and create new rigs.

      You said you had "to much going on right now." That doesn't specifically say you do have a job, it simply implies you're to busy and possibly out of or low on cash for Lego. So no, you didn't say at any point in that post you don't have a job.

    3. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Exactly, so don't go assuming sh*t. I'll take my builds and my $24/hr elsewhere

      ~JD~

      Umm, okay. Whatever floats you boat I guess. 

  19. New things coming in the future! 

    The Brick Village Emergency (my company) Quick Response Tanker (QRT), my giant*** rescue, '92 Dash engine, and major updates to my tower ladder (changed look of outriggers, made 'em functional, made elevators work, etc.). Expect these to come within the next week!

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Not sure how I missed this status, but nice! Can't wait to see them!

  20. Some point in the future I plan on ordering some Kenworth/Pierce engines

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Nice. Looking for an off-road type of engine to serve the rural zones.

  21. can someone please go into further detail on how you upload your parts list to BrickLink

  22. There hasn't been a new member in over a year. This is mildly concerning 

  23. Finally got some working stabilizers on Tower 2 but they're a pain in the *** to actually set up
