To replace SS208 or RH202? Any idea what they’re building?

Also looking into a possible TDA purchase/committee.

It’s not out to bid yet. They in a preliminary design phase - determining if they want to keep the current design, modify, or develop a new one. 221 is dependent on the sale tax ballot in November.

I’m not holding my breath on it but they have specs at a station of a Quantum Ascendant 107’. 

Also Medic 2201 and 2202 are in service.

When 221 gets built and operational you likely see a Ladder Co their or 219's

My guess is 9 will lose the ladder and it’ll end up at 17 or 19. 21’s first due has really tight streets. A ladder with no all-steer is trouble. 

“If I were the Chief” I’d move 19’s rig (which has extraction) to 17 which gives them the 60. Move L9 to 19. 221 will take almost 50% of 19’s calls so that’ll save the wear and tear on the ladder. See I fixed everything *Gold Star*

Heavy ladder presence in east mesa. If the stars aline, a full 3-1 response could be 3 ladders and an engine. (Though I'm not sure if Mesa's CAD requires Engine Types vs Engine Capabilities).

Looks like they're getting rid of both RH202 & SS208 for this new Air/Light/Rehab vehicle. As well as an '2002 Ladder & the old CV201 to help offset the cost of this $500,000 vehicle.
