  1. Earlier
  2. Also forgot to mention, Engine 7 is going to be a reserve engine, as of late July 2020. But this is not set in stone, because of the quarantine, it will be kept in service for as long as needed. 

  3. Major Changes Coming Soon 

    (Mostly just for my fire brigade) 

    I modified the current Engine 5 (for hopefully the last time 🤣) and I think I'm happy with how it looks. Also Battalion 1 went through some interior changes and just got out of the shop (will post pictures soon), now its a lot more realistic. 

    The Lego City Ambulance Service has recently been integrated into the Lego City Fir Brigade meaning that ambulances will now respond alongside fire trucks in certain stations.

    One station getting these changes is station 5, with the current rescue 1 going out of service today in order to be re-built into engine 3, which will be staffed in the new station 3 alongside utility 2 and 3. 

    Taking its place in station 5 will be Medic 5, a new Mercedes Benz sprinter ambulance, which is keeping its old "Lego City Ambulance Service" paint job. 

    I want station 3 to be able to fit in a 16x32  sized base plate. If anyone has suggestions for the station design feel free to comment below. Any help would be really appreciated.

      About the station, is a supposed to fit in to some sort of a modular street? That would be the easiest way to make a station that small look good.

    2. Rescue 423

      Rescue 423

      Yeah it is, I haven't got any of the pieces to make the modular street yet but the station is top of my list. I want to have it like Sven's FDNY Firehouse E-5.

      Looks like you've already got already got a plan then :) I want to build one of those in my town too, but I've already got a station.

  4. I've got a bit of a desision to make. I'm going to build a few trucks for paleto bay and then I will build a county fd that will be replacated off of a real county. The decision is which county. Should I do Orange county fire authority or los Angeles county fire dept. Which one?

      I'll think about that. It would introduce some E one and kme into the fleet.

    3. Michael P.

      Michael P.

      Or you could do what I did and pick a county, and build whatever you want

    4. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      @Michael P ya I'm doing that for the city fire dept. I want the county fd to be a replica of a real socal dept.

  5. More decisions.... Saber rescue pumper, Enforcer RMA, or Enforcer TDA? The only thing that's stopping me from the tiller is that I like the Saber chassis and they don't make Saber tillers 😭

      Very good point! I'm kind of focusing on the suburban parts right now, since that's the part I have built in real bricks. I'll probably see how the tiller goes and if I don't like it go with the Saber. I eventually will need another truck though because I made a new truck company (Truck 4) but I don't have a rig for it, so right now the reserve ladder is in that position. Thank you for your input!

    3. Michael P.

      Michael P.

      Enforcer tiller quint. Need I say more? 🤪

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      LOL no you don't 😂 If it works out the tiller will be a PUC too

  6. I'm starting to put orders in for a new engine... But I can't decide between an E-one Cyclone rescue engine, commercial cab pumper-tanker (similar to Engine 102), and Pierce Enforcer, Velocity, or (maybe)Quantum rescue engine. Anyone got opinions or ideas? It's going to be the first rig in a new station, Station 6, which serves a suburban area.

      Joshua B

      If I build a Pierce it will be a Quantum most likely or maybe a velocity, but I'm leaning toward building the Seagrave Meanstick I posted and running it as quint or something. I also thought about a Spartan boomer or some kind or snorkel too, but I really like the way that meanstick looks.

      I’ve updated my E-ONE Cyclone/Typhoon since I first posted the old Squad 9 back in 2017. One of the biggest changes from that design is the addition of the tiles just behind the grille. Imma be real with you, getting those tiles connected were a big pain to figure out 🤟

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      Yeah I've seen the updated version but I kinda like the old one better is some ways. If I build an E-one it will probably be more like Squad 9 but with those tiles. Yeah that must of been a pain alright 😂 I think I see how you did it though

  7. wishing I could build some more rigs IRL. Don't have the pieces...and ordering the pieces for ONE of my planned tower trucks would cost over 100 dollars. :/

    1. Michael P.

      Michael P.

      Look into the pieces you are using. Chances are, if you are using the wrong subtype (for example, there’s 3 different kinds of jumper plates. One of them is much cheaper compared to the others), your price can vary quite a bit. Also, if you are using rare pieces, those will drive your price way up. Rare colors can also cause your price to go up quite a bit.

  8. I am now selling apparatus. Please PM me if you're interested in discussing anything. I take payments via PayPal. Have a nice day!

      Ed O

      Not at the moment. I have a site but it's not published due to major department overhaul

  11. Tried to send you a PM but it said your messenger is disabled? I'd appreciate if you could look into that a little more and send my a PM if you could.

  12. Hey Ron, 

    I was wondering if your department would be willing to be Mutual Aid with Lego City Fire Brigade? 

    Link to our website below:

    Hopefully we can make this work...

      Rescue 423

      Nah, I want to have a walk-in, what would respond to a building collapse with no rescues?

    3. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      Just the rescue engines. It's a rescue and engine in one, really quite practical. Although depts often have spec ops units and stuff like that for the big incidents.

      Oh btw, was it you who mentioned you were going to build a PUC? Did you ever get to that?

    4. Rescue 423

      Rescue 423

      Yeah its gonna be for Engine 3, just gotta build the station first then I will destroy the current (and very ugly) engine 3 and replace it with a PUC. Probably will design it on Stud.io first and order the parts of bricklink. Gotta do the rescue first though. 

      Rescue Engines do sound practical but I guess for me every engine is a rescue engine (an engine that carries rescue equipment).

      I have to actually change that LOL. The county is no longer.

  16. Purely out of curiosity - who else on here is a firefighter/EMT/medic? Who is just a builder?

    1. Rescue 423

      Rescue 423

      I am just a builder.

      I'm just a LEGO fanatic who stumbled on the LFC and got hooked

  17. Station 2 will know consist of Engine 3, Utility 5, Utility 3 and Utility 4. It will be staffed full time. It will be home to the proposed Pumper 1. It will be located south Lego City, and covered by Battalion 2. 

  18. Hello everyone, Engine 5 of the Lego City Fire brigade went thru some changes and has only just returned to service. All of these changes are influenced by staff feedback or extra equipment needed to carry. The first cabinet has been changed to hold the medical equipment which has been moved from the cab freeing up valuable space. The cabinet now holds, standard first aid kit, oxygen tank , airways kit, defibrillator, burns kit, maternity kit, and hard suction kit allowing the truck to be upgraded to an Advanced Life Support engine. This upgrade was needed for the growing number of EMS calls in central Lego City. The cabinet across from that (passenger side front) is know the cabinet assigned for carrying everything a firefighter needs to go into a burning building. This includes a SCBA rack, Thermal Imaging Camera (TIC) and a command whiteboard. The cab has also been redesigned (interior) so that firefighters from either sides can get out either doors, allowing all the firefighters to get out one side for a medical call and the other side for a fire depending on what side all the gear is. The rear has been changed up to make the pump panel big enough to hold all the hose and the intakes/discharges. 2 exterior equipment hooks have been set up at the rear of the rig, one holds a scene light and the other holds a hydrant wrench. Other than that the truck stayed the same. Above: The new equipment carried, Right: the new pump panel setup. OTHER NEWS LCFB website update: should be up over the weekend, just finishing up the incidents page Utility 5 has been built, photos will be up in the LCFB album over the weekend, Lego City Police Force HQ got a new floor for special Operations and the 7th floor has been remade into 3 offices for Gang Crime Team, Media Unit, and Tactical Robbery Unit, I am debating whether to post photos of the new development. Have a great rest-of-week/weekend, please practice social distancing, and stay safe! *one more thing, I will try to be posting a blog every Wednesday, so check back here often!!
  19. Hello Everyone, I hope you are all doing well. I have titled this blog "My Helicopter Problem" Because I wanted to cover the fact that my city has 4 helicopters and no aircraft's of any sort. The Helicopters I have are: 1 Air ambulance, 1 police traffic Helicopter, 1 Police special operations helicopter, and 1 private helicopter. I just find them so easy to build and easy to keep in a city where space for a full sized airport is really limited. I will be posting photos of all these very soon. I have began to download other peoples mocs and: A) equipped the cabinets B) equipped the cab C) changed the paint scheme D) changed anything else I deem necessary. So starting today if you leave a link to a downloadable (Stud.io) version of your creation with a list of things you want changed (cab equipped, etc. ) as a status update and I will do change it and send it back to you (as a Stud.io file). I really liked Ben's Pierce Velocity Heavy Pumper as a base for an South Metro Fire Rescue's Engine 40, a rig I had wanted to build for quite a whilst. I kept Ben's cab and changed some parts of the body, the pump panel, equipped the cabinets and cab and added a light tower and ladder rack. I am pretty happy with the result. Once again the original truck is by Ben : My Version: SMFREngine40equiped_Final_Copy.io I made a bunch of Ambulances (see my last blog) and my next build is going to be a station to house them all in here is the last ambulance to join my collection, A VW HART response van. HARTvanequiped_Final_Copy.io I hope you enjoy this blog, stay safe, and happy Easter!! Thanks For Reading!!
  20. Soooooo I think I'm gonna restructure my department over the summer.  That will involve several rigs being rebuilt, a new color scheme, and possibly new call signs for some rigs. The new color scheme will ditch the old black undertone I had on my rigs before, replacing it with a yellow stripe with a black stripe higher up on the rig. So pretty much the scheme I had on Station 2's rigs and a few others (see Truck 2, Engine 2, Engine 5) with out the undertone.

    Engine 1, Squad 1, Rescue 1, Brush 2, Brush 202, Wildland 3, and HazMat 1 (which I have not posted yet) will will all get major revamps or rebuilds, and all of them will get updated a bit and changed to the new scheme.

  21. Sup everybody, 

    I should be posting some pictures of a rather large incident involving a train and a teenager that the Lego City Fire Brigade responded to sometime over the weekend. Hopefully everyone is doing well.   

  22. I remembered my login lol its been forever since I've been over here. 

    1. Sven

      Sven

      Then welcome back! :) It's still some stuff going on here.

  23. Hello everyone, I hope you are all staying safe. Lego City had a checkpoint running on the off-ramp of the A1, the main road to get into the city for quite a whilst now. AS of today the Lego City border is closed and armed LCPF officers are turning people away. It is now illegal to enter Lego City without written permission from the mayor. I advise all neighboring cities to do the same. So far Lego City hasn't had a single case of COVID 19 but this action has to be taken in order to prevent contamination. Unfortunately the LCPF traffic car has endured unexpected mechanical difficulty (leading to its temporary removal from service) and because of COVID 19 Mutual Aid is not available so LCPF traffic operations have now temporarily been halted. Unfortunately the website for the Lego City Fire Brigade has been taking a little longer than expected so please stay with me as I enter the final editing stage. Last blog I promised a station for my new department, Studwood County Police, I have created it on time. It is my first large moc designed online and I hope you all like it!! THE DOWNLOADABLE STUFF Studwood Police Station StudwoodPoliceHQ_Final_Copy.io Lego City Ambulance Service 4x4 Incident Support Unit 4x4AmbulanceIncidentResponseUnit_Final_Copy.io Lego City Ambulance Service Prolonged Incident Support Unit (every compartment is equipped).
  24. From the Office of the Board of Fire Commissioners:

    Due to Station 4 being approximately 10 minutes from the next closest BVFD station, Engines 4 & 14 will be re-specced to be 2,000-gallon engine-tankers to allow for the amount of time required for aditional manpower to arrive. The department will also be changing from 2 ladders to 3 to put one at 4. 

  25. So I have created another department just for fun. This is Studwood County Police. Their color scheme is a white car with a dark green stripe. So far I have made a Dodge Charger Traffic Unit, Chevrolet Tahoe K9, and Ford-F150 general patrol unit. Their jurisdiction includes Studwood Provincial Park, the smaller town of Studwood, and the surrounding highways. CREDITS: Ford F-150 Front- Sven Chevrolet Tahoe Rear lights- Sven Dodge Charger- CUSTOM Downloads: Chevy Tahoe StudWood Police K9 .ioFordF150 Dodge Charger Studwood Police.io I am working on a station for the Studwood Police. I also used my dodge charger design on a new blue-yellow highway patrol color scheme (see below) DodgeChargerBlueYellow_Final_Copy (6).io Some other stuff, I made a gang unit Ford Taurus for LCPF Public Safety Response Team (see below) 4-widegangunitfordtaurus_Final_Copy.io I am working on a website for my Fire brigade, it should be out by Sunday. The link will be posted as a status update and added to my "about" section. Thanks for reading!!
  26. Project List: 

    -Ford Taurus (4-wide gang unit)

    -Ford explorer (4-wide gang unit)

    -Dodge Charger (4-wide with a new color scheme)

    Anyway, pictures of these will be included in my next blog entry
