Think someone had a little money to spend.
The volunteer FD in the town next to us got a huge "Rescue/Mobile Command" vehicle a few years ago. For the size of the town, they have a lot of industry/factories, but we all think it is way overboard.
It is hard to tell if they are "worth" it. There is always the chance of a massive hazmat incident where you could actually use the command features of such a vehicle, but those are few and far between (Thank God!). Two other FDs in neighboring towns got BIG heavy rescue trucks. Both of those FDs kept their old small rescues for medical response, because the big trucks are, well, BIG! So the heavy rescues sit in the stations.
Bigger is not always better. But, I guess, when you need them you have them.
Command Unit 503 is not really new. Dumfries-Triangle has had it for a little while now. Not saying that it's not, but I can't really recall seeing it in use anywhere in the county by the county's career staff, or the volunteers.
That belongs to a VFD? Wow!
Yep. Check out their web site with the link I have in the previous post.
Our county got a command vehicle. Not yet in service. I'll look for pics.....
