  1. if I was going to guess, cost.
  2. Saw LVFR Engine 201 today at the Grocery.. Spoke to the engineer who told me that they have been in the shop more than on the street. Plenty of power compared to the Pierces, they like the set up but terrible electrical issues. Seem to like them, just wish they were not in the shop so much.
  3. Careflight used to have 2 helos in Yuma. However AeroMedivac (Air Medical resource Group) expanded and opened a base in Yuma with 2 ships, one the airport and one ant Yuma Regional Medical Center. FYi there was supposed to be a 3rd Careflight ship at YRMC but that must have fell thru. We only found out that Careflight reduced the birds when we called for one .
  4. Back When I got here 25 years ago, Gila Bend rescue was Volunteer and backed by Buckeye valley. Gila Bend may be getting their own CON. There was talk about paid Firefighters in Gila bend after the power plant was built.
  5. Yuma has rarely gotten phoenix rigs. Last word was one new Commercial Type 1 Pumper on Freightliner a year until all front line engines are replaced. At least the 4 busiest, 9 2, 10 and 5 , 10 was the first replaced. 6 and 11 get hand-me downs , no engine at 3, converted to dept shops.
  6. Is 55s going to be the most northern station in the city ?
  7. What will happen to ambulance service in Gila Bend, Back to the city, or to Rural /AMR?
  8. Fire Trucks Unlimited has re-furbed a number of area dept engines and Ladders. Here is The Quantum they are doing for Mohave Valley Fire: http://www.firetrucksunlimited.com/1440-mohave-valley-fire-department-1999-pierce-quantum/
  9. Sounds like where I work.....
  10. What will be the station number for the new station at Inspirada ? Anyone know what will be quartered there?
  11. As part of the new budget, Station 3 is set for replacement: The capital improvement plan includes $46 million for Symphony Park improvements, $20 million for a parking garage somewhere in downtown, $15 million for the Corridor of Hope homeless initiative, $9 million to replace the fire station at Washington Avenue and Rancho Drive and $2.8 million for information technology software and hardware replacement.
