About this creation
The slide-out is flush with the rest of the compartments yet slides out easily when necessary.
Rear shows the compartment for plywood used during collapse rescue situations. The top stores long tools as well as objects not used on a daily basis as well as the inflatable raft.
The door on the officer's side of body leads to accessing the command center/rehab/suit up area. Special suits for dive rescue or hazmat suits are carried in the walk-through portion of the body, making suit up quicker.
The saying “Outstanding” is a tribute to the late Captain Hatton of the prestigious FDNY Rescue 1, who died along with more than 300 first responders on 9/11/01.
Rescue 1 is a 2017 Spartan Gladiator/SVI Heavy Rescue. Features include a slide-out compartment! Like the previous generation of rescues, this apparatus has a partial walk-in compartment which has served useful for command, suit-up area, or rehab.
