  1. Get rid of those white rims!Ugh!
  2. So is E326 not black over red because it is a rental? The brush truck is very cool!
  3. I'll ask but the call volume isn't there to need it just yet.
  4. Been hearing R836 and tonight TRV 836 running calls. Any info on where they're running out of?
  5. Interesting choice. Gotta believe $$$ played a factor in not getting a true ARFF rig.
  6. I gotta think that rig is more expensive than the Pierce. It's nice looking but will probably be the only one they get.
  7. Wasn't that supposed to go to 58s?
  8. I've noticed Ladder and LT 131 have not been in the station for the past couple of weeks. They've been running a back up Pierce engine and the El Mirage Velocity. Any word on what's up with the rigs?
  9. Looks like Surprise is getting rid of their type-3 , previously used by E-304. It was at the city yard with the Surprise markings removed. Is 304 now running one of the E-one's?
  10. I've never been a fan of the decals Phoenix puts on their rigs, but they are at least safety messages from the dept., not ads from a private company. I can't wait to see a Hooters logo!
  11. Way to big. Noooooooo!
  12. Anyone know why Sun City is using El Mirage's old Velocity E121? It's been in 131s house for a week now.
  13. The engine is finished, minus the markings. It was sitting behind 131s. Also, on Tuesday there was a red and white Velocity sitting in the bay. Couldn't see the markings...
  14. Maneuverability is tops. With new housing developments being built with smaller streets, it's extremely difficult to get a huge rear mount tower in there. Especially with cars parked on the street. Not to mention driving through heavy city traffic. Tillers here in AZ. haven't caught on with the exception of Buckeye, and they definitely need it for the community of Verrado, which has very narrow streets. Most depts. probably prefer a tower for safety reasons, but a tiller will get you into tight spots.
  15. I was going to ask about AeroCare 1 because I've heard them a lot recently on the scanner flying into Phoenix hospitals.
