Engine 5 and Truck 5 pose for a picture!

Truck 5 is a unique apparatus in the FDCB as it is the only stand-alone truck company in the department. This is due to the high volume of calls in 5's district.

Technical Specs:
2016 Seagrave Marauder II
470 HP Detroit Diesel DD13 engine
100' Heavy Duty Tiller with 500 lb. tipload

The driver's side was structured to carry truck company equipment, while the officer's side was designed to store rescue tools. The driver's side contains forcible entry tools, salvage materials, roof saws, K-12 saws, reciprocating saws, salvage equipment, over 2000 ft. in ropes, RIT equipment, and three large fans for ventilation. The officer's side contains a complete Holmatro extrication equipment, a Stokes basket, a crash kit, a Hydra-ram, bolt cutters, a large amount of cribbing, a 375-ton 14-piece air bag set, shoring equipment, pneumatic drills and saws, and a variety of non-sparking tools, meters, and suits for Hazmat-situations.

In addition, the apparatus carries 276 ft. of ground ladders. The complement consists of extension ladders, wall ladders, and roof ladders. The extension ladder complement consists of two 35 ft. ladders, one 14 ft. ladder, one 12 ft ladder, and one collapsible 10 ft. ladder. The wall ladder complement includes two 24 ft. ladders, two 20 ft. ladders, and two 16 ft. ladders. The roof ladder complement has one 20 ft. ladder, one 16 ft. ladder, and two 12 ft. ladders.

Designed to be a straight truck, Truck 5 carries no water or hose, but the ladder is prepiped with a 1500 gpm monitor for ladder pipe operations.

Quoting Jon D Anytime man! For me it's the grill, I'm not sure if you're trying to have your own take on it or not but the way Paulo or James K does it fits pretty good. As for the station thing you could have just relayed it differently. Like "Station 5 is currently the busiest station in the city and has the fastest growing district citywide. Currently the city is looking for property (in whatever direction district 5 is growing) of station 5 for a new station 6."
Will take that into consideration! Thanks!

Quoting Jon D Nice looking tiller Mike! Two things though, with the cab design it looks more like a Simon duplex to me than a seagrave. It took me awhile but I realized it after seeing it as a tiller. I think it's the grill, the combination of the grill and headlight design really. The other thing is about it being a stand alone truck? If district 5 is so busy then why would you seperate the company's in district 5? It won't matter if the companies are separated or not, they will still receive the same number of calls regardless. If you're trying to reduce demand on apparatus then more apparatus need to be added, like medic units or a QRV. If the district is to big then you'd have to add another station and split the district with a new company (A station 6) which allows you to keep assets in place and keep up with current growth/demand. Just a thought on the issue.
Maybe I'll change the windscreen so that it is more straight. idk... I'll play around with the design tonight. Planning to add a squad and an additional engine in the future.. I thought it would be a different and better way of saying "I'm broke at the moment, but I do have plans for this station" :) Thanks for your comment!
