When all the new Pierce Tillers are in service, will the remaining Simon Duplex TDA's be retired?

I believe they are already ready reserve rigs, I don't think of any frontline. I think 50's had last font line. 

Doesnt make sense to just give rest to USAR task forces. Doesn't go with their replacement schedule

USAR Task Force maybe for the reason they have a 500 pound tip load. Heavy duty ladder... 92's is in a Simon Duplex as well.

69s, 95s, and 50s are still frontline Simon-duplex. 92s is in a reserve.

I would tend to believe that first American La France's would be going into reserve they are 16 to 17 years old now

I also believe that 95's is going to get one because of thier district which is LAX and I would be curios to see if 95's will be painted lime-green yellow one day due to the fact that they serve the airport.

95's is paid for by LAX. They will stay red.

I keep hearing that a new 95's is going to be built next to the airfield and maybe get crash rigs one day.

Yes I recently heard that as well from an engineer at 51's. New 95, with direct access to the airfield with one ARFF rig, TF & RA. The city/LAWA want's to widen Century Blvd. At that time, the current 51's would be relocated to the NW corner of the airport, with the Engine and RA.
