Howdy all!

Las Vegas Fire & Rescue has a New Smeal Quint for Truck 7

Looks really sharp.

The present unit is Tower 7, a 2012 Pierce Q

Seems strange to switch it for an aerial at this location.

Checked LVFR Facebook page and there is more pictures of this unit They describe it as a quint, but I thought that the present Tower 7 was a quint, maybe not  The new unit is a quint so as to replace their former engine which is now at Station 107 in Sun City Summerlin

At this time Truck 7 is in a pierce quantum quint, due to it being extremely slow going up hills for emergencies and constantly being out of service for electrical issues they are replacing it with this new Smeal, same features in regard to it being a quint since there is no longer an engine at 7. They went with a straight stick instead of a bucket due to it being a little bit less weight since the tank and pump take up a lot. Unknown where the current unit will go but we should see within the next month or so.
