Rescue 2
About this creation


As you can see, the doors and fold down steps are fully functional while maintaining the flush appearance. The B-column windows as well as the 1x6 tile are SNOT engineered.



Driver's side



The windows on the body are inspired by Ben Mill!



Rear shows the door for the walk-in compartment. Safety of the firefighters was a major concern, hence the numerous lights and the directional lightbar just above the door.



Officer's side shows the crew door for firefighters to access the walk-in body with ease.



Again, all doors and fold-down steps are fully functional. You can also see the command portion of the apparatus here.



This truck wouldn't be a fire truck without the infamous Federal Q2B siren! On its left is one of the Grover Air horns!

Brand new Rescue 2 arrived from Pierce MFG yesterday! Shop mechanics are busy outfitting the rig for service! Rescue 2 was purchased to alleviate the load on Rescue 1. With this in mind, Rescue 2 will be stationed at Station 2 where it will respond to the southern portion of Castle Beach. Along with US&R 2, Rescue 2 will also respond to a wide range of technical rescue calls including trench rescue, collapse rescue, confined space rescue, swift water rescue, entrapments, high angle rescue, urban search and rescue, and hazardous materials. Rescue 2 is a walk-in rescue apparatus, which allows for members to suit up for the proper response. Also, within the body is a command center where officers can direct the scene. Barring any setbacks, this apparatus will be placed into service within the next 2 weeks and will be ready to serve Castle Beach and the surrounding communities!

Technical specs:
2017 Pierce Quantum 22 foot walk-in heavy rescue
22 kW generator
On-board air compressor
Holmatro extraction tools (air-powered and battery operated)
Forcible entry tools
RIT equipment
Search and rescue equipment
Paratech struts

Credits:
Ben Mill for the body windows
MM for inspiration
LAFD US&R 88

Builder's note:
I'm particularly proud of the design of this one, especially the cab since. I think this is the closest representation of the B column windows. Engineered with some SNOT, the windows fit well. Thanks for all your support and be on the lookout for the next rigs!
