She's back, bigger and better! Rescue 1 arrived from KME yesterday for improvements to the cab and chassis! The biggest changes include a larger cab that could seat 6, full depth rear compartments, and transverse hosebeds for the preconnects.
About this creation
Officer's side: I finally bought another door for the side entry. The last rear compartment on the far left is the transverse hose compartment.
Driver's side: partial walk-in compartment is a command area and also serves as an area for which the trained divers can dress up.
Rear shows the pump panel and the hosebed.
Hosebed with the covers opened to aid with returning the hoses.

This apparatus can fulfill almost any role on the fireground. The specialized walk-in compartment contains the dive rescue equipment where the firemen can suit up en route to the scene. The additional water capability allows for the unit to run as an engine for its own district as well as running a safety line for vehicle accidents. The ample room in the apparatus allows for the setup of a command center.
