Pasalego Fire Department US&R 69 is this 2019 E-ONE Cyclone II heavy rescue that responds out of Station 69.
About this creation
The Cyclone II cab was chosen for its heavy duty application.
Special thanks to my good friend Abeed for the Cyclone decal!
Pasalego Fire Department worked closely with Castle Beach Fire Department to develop a well-equipped rig.
Like many rescues around the area, US&R 69 has a slide-out that increases interior space and can be used as a command post. The walk-in area also serves as a suit-up area for divers and hazmat situations.
Compartments on the driver’s side all open, showing the vast storage solutions for the many tools US&R 69 must carry.
Rear shows the storage for lumber as well as the FLIR mounted on a mast
Lumber storage for collapse situations
Top shows the storage for long tools and the inflatable raft. The air compressor is also stored above the compartments to increase space below.
US&R 69 responds to all technical rescue calls in Pasalego and can also be toned out for mutual aid. As part of CA-RTF2, this rig can respond as the state requires.
All compartments on the officer’s side opens as well!
The bumper contains the 12,000 lb winch and storage for battery operated Holmatro extraction equipment.
NightScan Powerlite can be deployed to illuminate scenes.
Pasalego Fire Department has placed into service this 2019 E-ONE Cyclone II heavy rescue as Urban Search and Rescue 69. Staffed by 5, this rolling toolbox has a wide array of tools and equipment for any challenging technical rescue incident including confined space rescue, high angle rescue, trench rescue, vehicle extrication, underwater/swift water rescue, and hazmat. Like many of the rescue trucks around the area, US&R 69 features a slide-out area for command purposes. The small walk-in area also serves as a suit up area for swift water incidents.
