Engine 201 is the latest engine to be placed in service!
About this creation
Engine 201 is built on the heavy duty Seagrave Marauder II chassis.
Special thanks to CC for inspiring the pump panel! Unlike the 1 series engines, the 200 series engines do not have the medical compartment behind the cab. Instead, the larger pump area allows the rig to focus on its primary role, which is to supply water to firefighters.
All compartments open to reveal storage for many firefighting equipment. Since Engine 201 is paired with Truck 1, rescue equipment is stored on Truck 1, leaving Engine 201 to focus on its mission of establishing an uninterrupted water supply.
The hosebed stores a variety of LDH and attack hose.
The hosebed cover protects the hoses from falling out while the vehicle is in motion!
The history of 200 series engines goes all the way back to when engine companies were two-piece companies: the wagon and the pump. In a typical fire response, the wagon carried all the attack hose and was first in line when responding. Just behind the wagon was the pump, which brought the supply hose and followed the wagon. The pump would then park close to the nearest fire hydrant, hook up to the water supply system, and then supply the pump with water.
Compartments on the officer’s side stores various couplings, high-rise packs, and wildland firefighting gear.
Engine 201, along with Truck 1, is one of the busiest Light Forces in the city, responding to more than 15 calls a day.
From front to rear, the top of the apparatus shows the NightScan Powerlite device, additional scene lighting, the booster reel for nuisance fires, the 2000 gpm Stang monitor, traffic cones, extra foam cans, and storage for loose equipment.
Castle Beach Fire Department has taken delivery of a brand new Seagrave Marauder II Triple Combination as part of the five apparatus order thanks to the LEMA grant. This apparatus will be placed in service as Engine 201 and will run alongside Truck 1 to form Light Force 1.
