A 2016 E-One Cyclone II pair replace the current Pierce Lance Heavy Rescue. The fate of the current rescue is still to be decided. As a pair, these rigs were dedicated to a good friend of mine's sister who was killed in a car accident when the squad was in its planning infancy, the logos and hashtag are in honor of her.
About this creation
Squad 9 is an AWD 4x4 Heavy Rescue, with all around scene lighting, including a cab mounted scene light.
On the driver's side, the rig features two hydraulic cord reels. The rear compartment holds the rescue tools, along with a portable generator.
A first for me, the rig features a working bumper winch. The crank and reel are located above the rear axle.
Squad 9A features a 55 ft snorkel. These two vehicles will operate in tandem at all times, unless one is down for maintenance. The squad responds with a minimum of 5, but can have 6, depending on staffing.
The business end. Stacked tip straight stream for the bucket, the only way to go for an aerial master stream.
Driver's side tool layout. The middle compartment contains a sliding tool tray that slides out on either side of the rig.
In the forward compartment you have Metal-X extinguishers and a cutting torch setup. The rearward compartments contain ventilation and fire suppression tools.
Now these are a pair of beauties! Great look rigs D. I do have two minor things, you said these are cyclone 2s but the grills look more like Typhoons. Also on the 2nd/3rd pic. from the bottom the air bottle compartment seemed to fall off, or the rig "got a scratch" during delivery. ;P
