RT501 previously served as Truck 1 from 2002-2006, Truck 5 from 2006-2009, and Truck 6 from 2009-2017. This truck was sent for a brief refurbishment prior to being placed in its current capacity!
About this creation
The Seagrave Commander cab is inspired by Paul B and Mike L.
Access to the ladder is accomplished through the built in steps from the cab.
The compartment behind the cab stores forcible entry tools, and the Holmatro CORE battery-powered extraction tools.
The reserve truck companies carry nearly all of the equipment the CBFD truck companies contain.
Ground ladder storage on this rig is smaller than the current truck companies; hence, this rig carries only 242 ft of ground ladders.
Ground ladder compartment opens for easy access.
There is also a 24 ft. extension ladder on the officer’s side for rapid deployment.
This well-traveled rig has seen some of the largest fires in the history of Castle Beach.
Reserve Engine 501 (right), Reserve Engine 502 (middle), and Reserve Truck 501 (left) are housed at Station 1 and can be staffed by call back members and activated as Task Force 500 in times of need or when there are special events in the city.
With the size of Castle Beach Fire Department, it is critical to have back up rigs so that frontline rigs can be maintained on a regular basis. Therefore, CBFD operates 3 reserve engine, 2 reserve trucks, 1 reserve rescue/US&R, 1 spare engine, 1 spare truck, and 1 spare rescue/hazmat. Reserves vary from spares in that reserves are fully stocked with equipment whereas spares are just the rigs.
Reserve Truck 501 is the primary reserve truck company in the city and is housed at Station 1. Previously serving as Truck 1, Truck 5, and Truck 6, this well-traveled rig continues to see action all over town! As one of two reserve tillers, RT501 backs up the truck companies in Battalions 1 and 3.
