Brand new US&R 2 which replaces the 2007 Pierce Velocity Rescue 1, and inspired by Portland, OR fire dept. Squad 1. FDCB opted for a tillered rescue due to the narrow streets in downtown Castle Beach. In addition to the increased maneuverability, this apparatus carries more equipment than its tandem-axle predecessor and a heavy-duty IMT crane for enhanced capabilities.
About this creation

Quoting 1X ^ Ah, a tillered Rescue. I believe this is the first I've seen in actual bricks. Great job
Thank you! I'm pretty sure there are others that have built tillered rescues, but I am confident that this is the first Pierce Quantum tillered rescue :)
