As part of the Foam Task Force, Engine 201 has a large 5000 gpm Akron monitor to flow big water and an Akron HFRT-10 rooftop monitor that can be controlled from the cab. The use of the rooftop monitor is made possible by the pump and roll capability of the apparatus.
Closeup of the Akron Renegade monitor. Special thanks to southbrickfallsfire for inspiration and instructions! Also seen is the large industrial pump panel, which is absolutely required to flow big water! It does not take a physicist to figure that out!

Engine 201 responds in tandem with Truck 1 to all calls. Together, these two trucks are referred to as Light Force 1 and make up the backbone for the department's SOP. A light force can be very flexible in a fire scene because the crew has the equipment to take up any task given by the incident commander.
