Truck 69 is one of a few Apollos out there in the LFC today!
About this creation
Truck 69 is staffed by 4 and responds first due to structure fires in their district.
The Marauder II chassis was selected for its heavy duty application.
As a quint, this rig is capable of making the initial attack on a fire.
Unique to this rig is the enclosed pump, which protects it from the elements!
The rear of the apparatus houses the ground ladders, pike poles, and several hundred feet of the LDH.
Taking out the ground ladders is a skill that needs to be mastered by every firefighter as lives depend on their proper placement at a scene.
Truck 69 also switched to Holmatro EVO extraction tools for rapid deployment and to save space as well.
Truck 69 offers quite a bit of storage space despite the fact that it is a quint!
Truck 69 is ready for action!
The black steel tower is rated for 1250 lbs dry and 750 lbs wet. Pasalego Fire Department also opted for dual master streams for extinguishing fires.
A closer look at the aerial shows unique techniques employed to capture the shape of the real aerial device.
Pasalego Fire Department has placed into service Truck 69, which is a 2019 Seagrave Apollo II 105’ tower, and replaces a 1996 Pierce Dash rearmount platform. Equipped as a quint, Truck 69 is first-due for all structure fires in 69’s district. Truck 69 also carries a complete set of battery-operated Holmatro extraction equipment. Staffed by four (one of whom is a paramedic), Truck 69 responds to just under 20 calls a day and is typically the busiest apparatus at Station 69.
