About this creation
Jump seat area for the firefighters.
Compartmentation in the body. Similar to the current models, our previous tillers were used to store equipment
Rear shows the ground ladder storage and the space underneath is used to store oblong tools such as pike poles and is also used to store 2 of Positive Pressure Ventilation (PPV) fans. One unique feature of this tiller is the open tiller man's cab, which is a rarity in the LFC.
Officer's side shows even more compartmentation!
The compartments directly behind the jump seat area stores extraction equipment, just like today!
Reserve Engine 501 and Reserve Truck 501 can be staffed by recall personnel to provide additional support during times of crisis.
Reserve Truck 501 was originally a twin to Reserve Truck 502 and previously served as Truck 3 until it was totaled in an accident in 1987. Since the tractor portion was the only part damaged, the city decided to just purchase a tractor to help save money. Hence, a 1988 Seagrave tractor was purchased. At the time it was delivered, this apparatus was transferred to Truck 1, and the Mack CF tiller was moved to Truck 4. The Seagrave tiller continued to serve as Truck 1 until 1999 when a brand new Seagrave tiller was purchased. At that time, it was placed in reserve status as Reserve Truck 501.
Truck 501 is a 1988 Seagrave/1972 100' tiller and is stationed at Station 1
