Engine 205 "Never Forget"

Because of the high demands in Station 5's coverage, FDCB purchased a used 2008 Pierce Saber PUC from the local Pierce dealer! After a light refurb and a new paint job, Engine 205 will begin service on September 11, 2016 at 8:46 AM as a way to commemorate the 9/11 attacks. I cannot believe that it has been 15 years since that fateful day. Words cannot express what I and many other people felt that day. May we never forget those who lost their lives!
About this creation

Driver's side. Notice the short wheelbase that allows this apparatus to maneuver easily through tight spaces.


The rear of the apparatus shows the large hosebed which stores 750 ft. of 5" LDH, 500 ft. of 3" hose, and 750 ft. of 2.5" hose. Also seen is the enclosed ground ladder compartment.


Officer's side


Unlike other stations, each of the suppression companies (E5, E105, and T5) at Station 5 will run independently of each other. However, Truck 5 can be paired with E205 to form a light force as needed, or the 3 apparatus can be respond as a task force when requested.

Builder's note:
I was really surprised to find out that I had enough extra pieces to create another engine company. After sorting my inventory, I believe I can create another one for Engine 4. I am currently awaiting the parts for Engine 6, Engine 206, Truck 6, Engine 207, and Truck 7. Be on the lookout for these rigs!



Sneak peak of Engine 206! It will be a 2013 E-ONE Cyclone II with an eMAX rescue pumper body!
