Let's see the apparatus you work off of, or is in you departments invatory.

Since I'm not currently serving on a department, I'll show you what I used to opperate from.

Sorry, couldn't get the image to post

1992 Pierce Dash.
1500 GPM pump
500 Gallon tank

It was set up for residential and highrise firefighting. We had 600 feet of 5 inch supply line and around 800 feet of 3 inch. It also had two 1 3/4 inch preconnected lines, and two preconnected 2 1/2 inch lines.

1995 Sutphen
1500 GPM pump
1000 Gallon tank

This was our rescue pumper when I was serving there. In addition to normal structual firefighting equipment, we also carried Amkus cutters, spreders, rams, airbags, cribbing, BLS equipment, stokes basket, and high and low angle rope equipment.

This engine had 2 1 3/4 inch preconncted lines, two 2 1/2 preconnected lines, as well as 5 inch and 3 inch supply lines. Since we opperated in rural areas, we also had 6 inch hard suction lines to draft from portable drop tanks.

As already shown - tripod will not allow "remote hosting" of images, so until I can get my entire web site moved, I'm afraid you'll have to visit

Sorry for the inconvenience

My company, Critical Air Medicine, flies both Cessna 421C and Bell 206's.

Personally I only fly the C421ís.

A typical mission is an easy days work really. I don't have to be at the airport when I'm on call. I just have to be with in 20 minutes of the airport when I get a page. Our shifts are 24 hours for 20 days straight.

A typical mission is about 100 mile trip (about 35 min flight) consisting of a hospital to hospital patent transfer.

Our Corpus base, where I fly, has an exclusive contract with the childrens hospital here in town and so all of my transports are neonatal and pediatric patients.

I really lucked out with this job since I regularly put in about 5-15 hours of work a week and get paid salary. It allows a lot more free time to get to the shooting range.:)

Can you post a picture of the pump panel on your Engine Company? It looks rather unique.

Saulsbury didn't manufacture that many LTIs, did they? I know they were a dealer prior to the E-One takeover, but I'm thinking they're rare.

01-01-2005, 21:02
I will get a picture of the pump panel for you tomorrow. I'm not sure on how many LTI's Saulsbury sold. My Township has another one as well. A 105 foot Tower stationed on the other side of the Township.

01-04-2005, 21:27
obxemt, here is a pic of our pump panel. Sorry for the delay.
