Brand new Engine 204 arrived from Spartan ERV Tuesday, September 27, 2016. That same day, FDNY Battalion Chief Fahy died while operating at a structure fire in the Bronx. A couple days prior, Lieutenant Leach and Firefighter Fickles from the Wilmington, DE Fire Department died from injuries sustained at a collapse at a structure fire. Because of these terrible tragedies, the shop mechanics added the iconic FDNY stripes to this apparatus to commemorate those who have given their all!
About this creation


Driver's side. The shop mechanics did an excellent job with adding the iconic FDNY stripes to the apparatus. For the foreseeable future, this apparatus will keep the stripes. The directional arrow bar is seen in the middle of the apparatus. Also, the unique location of the intakes and valves can be seen.



The rear of the apparatus shows the hosebed and ground ladder storage, which is designed like the rest of the engine company fleet. The directional arrow stick is seen directly under the hosebed.



Another photo of the rear.



The officer's side is symmetrical to the driver's side in terms of aesthetics. The directional arrow lightbar in the middle of the apparatus allows this vehicle to setup in different angles to control traffic.



Task Force 4 is composed of Truck 4 (Rear), Engine 204 (Middle), and Engine 4 (Front). Like the other Task Forces, they are staffed by 10 firefighters and are able to mitigate a wide variety of calls on their own.



Light Force 4 [Truck 4 (Rear) and Engine 204 (Front)] is composed of six men, acts as one company, and responds in tandem when a call comes in.


Engine 204 replaces the current E204, which will be relegated to Engine 4. The addition of another suppression company was needed after statistics showed an increase in call volume. The design of this rig was to increase firefighter safety while operating at any scene. This is evident in the traffic control lightbar on the driver's side, the officer's side, and rear of the apparatus.

Technical Specs:
2016 Spartan Gladiator Transformer Triple Combination

1500 gpm Hale pump
HyPro Foam 2001 Foam System
500 gal. water

Standard engine company equipment

Builder's notes:
This was a particularly fun build as I combined many techniques into this rig. S/O to Paulo R. for ideas for the wheel wells, cab steps, and the SNOTed compartments! I didn't realize that I ran out of translucent red lights for the primary lightbar, hence the translucent black lights. I have not seen too many Spartan Transformer pumpers, so I decided to build one for fun.

The rig is really nice but the news from NY are very sad. It was our last full day of our stay in NYC when we heard the news of Chief Michael Fahy's death. But it was a smell of odor of gas they responded to. After they arrived and investigated the scene the house exploded. Our thought's and prayers are with all the victims and the whole FDNY family <3 Hope the injured will recover very soon.
