Squad 51 is a unique two-piece company that acts as the heavy rescue/hazmat company for the department. Both pieces always respond together as one unit and is staffed by 6 men. In addition, the squad can act as an engine company or truck company depending on the Incident Commander. The unique boom on the primary piece extends 55 feet and can assist with technical rescue situations or as an elevated master stream. It’s small footprint allows the rig to be setup in tight alleys where larger tower ladders cannot fit. The primary piece carries engine company tools, forcible entry tools, and the Holmatro extraction equipment. The second piece carries the specialized rescue and hazmat gear.

Quoting Alexander Lutz These do look great, but how many departments are you going to open? Some of your older ones need more rigs.
I’d like to open a few more departments; however, contrary to popular belief, I do not have an endless supply of bricks, so I tend to pick my personal favorites from a giant list of potential builds.

Quoting Jeff B. Excellent work Mike! Everything from the color scheme, the functionality of the units, and the fact that they are inspired by Chicago Area Units makes me want me to give this 10 minifig heads. If I only they allowed, I definitely would for this snorkel and rescue!
Awww thanks Jeff! Maybe I should’ve separated them into two pages so you could give the ten heads :p
