    2. Rescue 423
  7. Meet Sgt. York (above) of the LCPF Public Safety Response Team. He is assigned to the West Lego City Neighborhood of "New Lego City", complete with businesses, residents, and its own large train station, located in the heart of Lego City, "New Lego City" sure has its struggles. Below we answer some FAQ about the Public Safety Response Team. FAQ How does a neighborhood qualify to get a PSRT? officer assigned to it? A neighborhood can qualify in a number of different ways, mostly PSRT officers are assigned to neighborhoods where crime has to be above a certain average, but we also assign PSRT officers to a neighborhood if a certain number of citizens that live/work in the area fill in a request form (which can be done online, or in person at the closest LCPF station. How do you get in contact with the neighborhood PSRT officer? Does he have an office we can visit? PSRT officers do not have offices open to the public, but they do have their own email and phone number (which can not be used for emergency contact) which are specifically used for the purpose of members of the public reaching the officer with problems/suggestions. PSRT officers do drive around their neighborhood in unmarked cars but are most often found walking around, interacting with members of the public. What happens if the incident is to serious to be dealt with in an email? Simply bring it up at the monthly meetings that take place at 6:00 pm, at the local LCPF station. Anyone is invited to attend and share their views (of course because of Covid 19 these meetings are happening virtually). Do PSRT officers do anything else except just patrolling/interacting with minifigs in their neighborhood? Yes! PSRT officers respond to any calls along side patrol officers inside their neighborhood. They also respond to any calls which possibly involve somebody who has spoken to the PSRT before. Why are PSRT officers armed? PSRT officers are armed so that they can respond alongside Armed Response Vehicles and the Emergency Task Force to any incident involving firearms inside or around their neighborhood. When did the LCPF get its first PSRT officer? The program was officially introduced on March 1st, 2020 after the LCPF recognized that certain neighborhoods needed more help than others. So far it has helped prevent fatalities in a shooting and information given to the PSRT officers helped Special Operations officers with a successful raid. Are any other neighborhoods going to get a PSRT? Yes! The LCPF is currently looking at 1 more neighborhood (The Food District) located just North of our current PSRT neighborhood. This neighborhood asked for a PSRT after seeing how well the "New Lego City" program went. Gallery (Above) The PSRT unit officer ticketing one of the parties involved in a parking feud. (Above) The PSRT officer chatting with a shopkeeper in his exotic pet shop. (Above) The PSRT exiting a restaurant after discussing the placement of a new alarm system with the owner. (Above) The PSRT officer taking part in the "Free Graffiti" project with a younger member of his neighborhood. The "Free Graffiti" project encourages minifigs to do graffiti on bland walls of public buildings as long as they have a licence from the city. It is meant to help brighten up the bland city feel downtown Lego City has.

  8. Think I should add chevrons to this or leave it? It looks pretty sharp already

      @Rylie D 45 counting EMS, marine, and PVFD, plus 5 police. Man I didn’t realize I had that many 😂

    3. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      Wow that's alot

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rylie D Haha yeah I didn't quite realize I had that many myself, I hadn't counted in a while

  10. Doing a little research on Columbus Fire Department has me absolutely digging their old ALF tillers.... I might just have to build one for Truck 1 now 😂

      Looks cool

      Joshua B

      @Rylie D I'm a sucker for tandem axle tillers 😂

  11. The guys at Columbus Fire Department Station 24 are in for a treat 😏

      @Rylie D Yep, a relative of mine is the Captain of Station 24

    3. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      Very cool. That's so nice. 

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rylie D It's pretty cool all right! I've only been to one of their stations once when I was really little (no idea what station it was) though, since I live about 4 hours north in Michigan.

  12. Some day this will be Truck 2

      Rylie D

      Looks good. Is it gonna have a bucket?

    2. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      Thanks @Rylie D! Yup, I just didn't bother doing the aerial device. All my aerials will be platforms now besides the tiller of course.

  13. The Spartan is taking shape!

    1. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      Wow. That's awesome. The front looks good. Have you decided what body you are going to do? I'd suggest the spartan S-180 pumper body

      https://spartaner.com/products/deliveries/order-518004-01/

    2. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      Thanks a lot @Rylie D! I have it with the old top mount pump and body that was on the FXP pumper right now and I'm digging the look. I'm still deciding if I should leave the body as is or update it though.

      IMG_20200801_2215368_2.thumb.jpg.b9826e3e12b1c4994d82a42c3a9d4827.jpg

      That's a nice looking pumper too! I see it's from Cle Elum, have you seen it responding or anything yet?

    3. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      I don't live in cle elum but I'm building a house there. Havent seen it yet responding. 

  14. Should a bring back a Spartan? Maybe as Engine 4 (which is currently the last of my Pierce/Freightliner FXP's still in my fleet)? I'm also thinking of moving Engine 5 (the E-One Cyclone) to reserve status. Even though I built it only a few months a go, my style has really changed a lot and it's kinda outta place in my fleet. The reserve pumper I'm working on is turning out a lot better then I thought it would so I might switch it with the E-one.

    1. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      Defently do a Spartan. They look very cool.

    2. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rylie D I do kinda like em. I might just throw a Spartan cab on the old FXP body and see how that turns out.

  15. Anybody else think this is a little too much? 😂

      @Rylie D I'm thinking center the scene light on the pump and ditch the air hose reels, that's how I have it on another rig and it looks great. Thing is though, there's a scene light just out of view on the front of the body...

    3. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      That seems like to many scene lights. Ditch the ones On top of the pump and keep the ones on the body. You want to light an area up, not blind people😅.

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rylie D LOL idk that's how I have it on another rig and I like it, I'll have to play with it and see though

  16. Okay I have an idea and I don't know if I will do it or not. I'm thinking instead of having ambulance that are part of the fire dept Of have a volunteer rescue squad that would consist of a couple of ambulances, a rescue and a ems superviser. On an ems call if the fire dept is closer they will respond and give medical help since all firefighters are paramedics. The fire dept would provide ems but will not transport. Then when the rescue squad shows up they would take over and transport the patient. Should ambulances be ran by the fire dept or should I have a volunteer rescue squad?

      I love the idea, but if the department is full time why would the ambulance service be volunteer? IMO you should change your department to a volunteer department (since it's a pretty good size to be one) and then do the volunteer EMS like you said here.

    3. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      That's my plan to change the firebdept to volunteer. With the volunteer rescue squad it would free up space in the fire stations.

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rylie D I like that idea

      Rescue 423

      I have a kit with some lights but all my vehicles are to small to hold the battery box 😕. Yours looks good!

    3. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rylie D Well tbh I didn't pay anything, it's all from parts I had on hand 😂 I'm guessing the rig would be somewhere in between $40-$60 though, and the lights for the cab alone costed almost $50 with shipping.

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rescue 423 I have 2 of these in the cab, the fit almost anywhere! https://lifelites.com/elite-jr-kit If I ever light the body I'll probably use Brickstuff because the wires are smaller, the actual LEDs and wires for LifeLites can be little bulky sometimes.

  18. Update on the rigs. The ladder truck is done. Ill post it after I put decals on it. I'm working on the 2nd engine out of what I'm hoping to build 5 engines. This second engine is a Spartan S80 pumper. I do need to order some more pieces so some rigs might be delayed.

    1. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      Is 1 ladder and 5 engines all your planning to build? Why not mix it up a little and have a ladder, a quint, a pumper-tanker and two engines or something? Can't wait to see the ladder though!

    2. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      Don't you worry. That's not all that is planned. I'm also building a tanker or 2 and a few brush trucks and a rescue and ambulances

  19. Reserve Engine 2 WIP

      Awesome. What year is it? I know its a pierce

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      Thanks @Rylie D I'm not really sure yet, maybe a roughly 2010 Enforcer?

  20. If anybody has some interesting call ideas for my police force or fire brigade please list them below! I am getting so bored of running the same station on medical calls. Thanks!

    1. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      MVA, rollover, water rescue, wild fire, structure fire, entrapment, arson, gas leak... the list goes on and on. ;)  You could also do something unique like a criminal holding a hostage/kidnapping, bridge collapse, or semi truck fire.

    2. Rescue 423

      Rescue 423

      I haven't done an MVA or an arson in a whilst. Problem with where I set my police force means that every second call they get is a major one 😅. I'll probably do an arson next. Thanks!

  21. Little update. Engine 1 got a new back bumper design. Ill post it and you can see if you like this version or the old version. Also I've updated my "about me" thing in my profile. Go check it out since it shares the backround about the town name and the fire depts name.

  22. Sneak peak at the new fleet of Type 3s 🤘IMG_20200727_1552357.thumb.jpg.7d18256bb4eab7748a2a6ff990d61389.jpg

  23. Update on what's going on! The red tiles finally came so I can start building fire apparatus in the new colorsheme. Will start building the new rigs Tommorow.

  24. Algonquin Fire Department has broken ground today on the new Station 3! As the district around the station grows and the number of calls increase, the department is taking steps to match those needs with new apparatus and an improved building.

  25. Chevron time! I'm going all out with decals on this new rig, so keep an eye out for it!

      @Josh Lol I gotta lotta decaling to do... 2 more wildlands to decal like Wildland 3 (which is the first rig I decaled, with the American flag compartments), lettering for this new one, and a couple more smaller rigs. I just finished the chevrons on this one.

    3. Josh

      Josh

      Can't wait to see them!

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Josh I'm getting closer! I've got so many rigs finished that I haven't posted I don't even know where to start 😂

  26. When that one LED just won't work.... 😤

      @Rylie D Well now I'm not sure I'm gonna tell 😜 Lol no not really... My brush trucks are too small and compact to properly fit lights into them without modifying pieces. Maybe someday I'll light try to light up one of them though.

    3. Josh

      Josh

      I know that feeling, thats why I switched to brickstuff LEDs.

      Also, these would fit in your larger brush truck (the flag one) pretty well (I have them):

      @Josh Well I don't know.... Right now I'm just looking to light up this latest rig, so probably nothing for that Type 3 atm. I'm thinking another LifeLites eLite Junior for the light bar, then use the set I have with the non-working LED for the headlights and maybe a visor light. Thanks for the suggestion though, cool vid too!

      Edit: I ordered another eLite Junior. Someday I'll try brickstuff, maybe for the body since I understand the wires are smaller, but for the simple stuff I'm doing right now LifeLites works 😉
