Task force 6 is ready to go!

Engine 6 formerly served Sequoia Fire Department as Engine 1 and was first due for all structural calls. Ironically, Engine 6 was originally a Castle Beach Fire Department engine company that never saw service because of a manufacturer's error. So it was returned to KME and the department went to the next bidder, Pierce MFG. At the same time, Sequoia Fire Department was looking to replace their 22 year old Ford/FMC engine company. When they heard that FDCB was returning the KME engine, Sequoia Fire Chief Brampton inquired about the possibility to acquire the returned engine. After negotiations, KME and Sequoia Fire Department were able to come to an agreement where KME would make several changes to fit the department's protocol and Sequoia Fire Department would acquire the apparatus at a lower cost than the original price.

This triple combination engine was designed for structural responses. Because the truck was designed by the same individuals who drew up the specifications for the current FDCB fleet, the shop mechanics did not have too much trouble preparing the rig for service.

Quoting Lane Spyksma Another great build, but would've loved more pictures.
Thanks Lane! I have a couple more pictures to add; but unfortunately, MOC would only let me use these 3 photos. The error message that I'm seeing is that the uploader could only import jpg, png or gif files. The photos that I'm trying to import are jpg, so I don't really know the solution to this. *Edit* I found the solution! It was simply a matter of resizing the photos!
