  1. From the album: Huntington Brick Fire Department

    Truck 6 is a 2019 Pierce Velocity, it was previously a Arrow XT and was upgraded a couple months ago. Truck 6 is housed at Station 6 along with E-6, R-6, and HAZ-6. I’ve been away awhile and now trying to remake my folder of all my rigs.

  2. From the album: San Brickardo Fire Rescue

    SBFR Station 5 is one of the oldest stations in the city, and its history is on full display via the many informative plaques on either side of the bay entrance. The station is still based in its original building, originally built in the 1830s (but renovated significantly in the 1930s). The building is three floors tall with a full interior, bedrooms and bathrooms, 2 different firefighters' offices, a kitchen, small barbeque and deck, gym, and classroom/meeting room. This building takes inspiration from FDNY Single station houses and @Point Lego City Fire recent station MOC (although his is much better lol), but the build itself is fully custom. More SBFR is coming soon!

    Castle Beach Fire Department has updated Engine 17 to this 2019 Seagrave Marauder II triple combination which formerly served as Engine 1. Engine 17’s previous rig, a 2005 Seagrave Commander triple, will then be moved to the training academy. Engine 17 also showcases the updated “1” series spec. The biggest change to the design is the removal of the medical compartment from just behind the cab to now having a full compartment on the officer’s side dedicated to advanced life support gear. With the rise of different kinds of medical emergencies, CBFD is taking measures to stay prepared for any emergency! Engine 17 serves the Pacific Heights region and sees roughly 9 calls a day.

  18. Sometimes, we happen to be in the right place at the right time, but it takes training and expierence to make a difference. 2010, the year that should have ended my firefighting career. The newly formed county FD was preforming budget cuts all around, (and hiring highly paid managers) and one of those measures was to reduce the cost of the full time crews. In reality it meant that the 24 hour crews would be laid off except for a select few that were gonna work from 9 to 5, and the rest of the day and night the first out Engine was to be manned by volunteers when there was a call. In the transition period, I worked a few months in the city of Goes, but that was not going to last either as the the same method was applied to their 24 hour shifts. So I found myself out of a job for a while, then I worked as a fire guard at a local drydock, but that was also not permanent as I was deemed to have too expensive as I had my firefighter certificate and several specialisations. So one day I stumbled across a job ad at my dads old department in the city of Antwerp, so I applied. Went through all tests and for some strange reason, they hired me! (lol) Had to get used to several differences, as Antwerps methods are a little more agressive. Did a few weeks at the training grounds to get used to the methods and differences in equipment, but then I was stationed at Station North, the biggest and most busy station in the city. Most older guys there had served with my father, so it was a warm welcome, but I didn't recieve any special treatment from them, still had to do my rookie period. And I can still taste the shaving cream that shot out of my locker one day but I'm getting carried away. Then came the big one, in the city centre, a appartment building was ablaze, and we did the job like clockwork, had to evacuate 15 people by aerials and ground ladders because the 18th century building had no fire escapes and the only route out was blocked by the fire. Me and my buddy were doing a second search in a smoke filled appartment next door, no visibility, heat and unlogical layout of the appartment, that was literal hell to do a search in. I focussed on the faint light of our flashlights and the light of my buddies SCBA pack. Then the unmistakeable sound was heard of PASS device and followed by a mayday call. My blood froze and my buddy grabbed me and asked if I was okay, after confirming I was good, we headed out, but we were one floor below the downed firefighter, my buddy radioed in and asked if we could go up as RIT/FAST, we got the green light as the RIT/FAST team was having trouble getting up the stairs as conditions worsened. We asked for a ladder at the 3rd floor alpha balcony door, as that was our planned egress route should it all go to hell. Through the thick smoke (and it being 7am in January) we eventually got to our downed brother, he was still breathing but had having trouble moving. It took all 3 of us to move him to the balcony door and in the bucket of the ladder truck. Then we were brought down as our SCBA bottles were low on air and the stairway had schanged into a fireball due to smoke ignition. After a bottle change and a drink we were ordered to relive a hose crew and mop up the remaining fires as the others knocked down the bulk of the fire. Luckily there were no fatalities or injuries, only a resident with a mild smoke intoxication. The downed firefighter was transported to hospital, but was released a few hours later, it was luckily only a heat exaustion. But the week after that, we trained extra on removing a downed firefighter, just to be extra ready if it happened again. And at the end of the week, I was called to the Engine bay of the station by the Battalion Chief , and I thought I was in trouble cause he sounded mad as hell. So by the Engine, Chief closed one of the roll up doors on the rig and yelled at me "Now you come here to fill your dads boots! And now you do this!" I was almost sure I was getting fired. He continued "Next time you do that, do it again cause it earned you a promotion" I was speechless for a few seconds, and was snapped out of it by a 10 gallon drum of water being emptied on my head from the ladder rack of the engine. Extremely wet, I was handed my shoulder insignias that upped my rank from rookie to firefighter. Proud of my accomplishment, I squeaked to the locker rooms to get changed and applied my new insignias to my uniforms. But I could not get the slogan out of my head, that was used in a PC game in my early teens, and it was from the Late LAPD Chief Daryl F. Gates: "As you train, so shall you fight" and it true, never stop learning.

  19. Next to fighting fires, I loved (and still do) cutting up vehicles. And in my 15 years of service, I've dissasembled pretty much a whole junkyard, of course with help of my brothers and sisters. I've cut into anything from a beat up lunchbox to a Ferrari, even a city bus and all European brands of truck. Seen all sorts of outcomes for the pinned in persons, from nothing more then a scratch to unrecognisable mangled bodies, even a 140+ car pileup, but enough about that, after the last entry, I'm not really up to bring up bad memories just yet, so more on that in a later entry. So here is a story about a MVA that stayed with me over the years that had a good outcome. We go back to summer 2008. We just completed our daily check on Engine 4530 and were headed for the living quarters for some coffee and a lecture about something boring, can't remember what is was. But before the lady from HR could even start her lecture, we were toned out for a accident with a pin in. We responded in 4530 and followed by 4570 our heavy rescue truck. And sure enough at the location, which is a major crossing where cyclists merge into traffic to go to one of the many schools in the city, the police was busy to create a safe work space for us, but it was no accident as we assumed and dispatch radioed through. There was a single black SUV on the cycling lane, parked in a rather strange angle and 2 legs sticking out from under it, recognisable was the green color the local ambulance service gear. We disembarked and were greeted by the driver of the ambulance that arrived a few minutes before us. There was a six year old girl under the car, she was stable, but her legs were stuck between the chassis of the car and the frame of her bicycle, and as expected, in sheer panic. I was assigned to go under the car and help the paramedic to see what was to be the safest way to free the girl while the rest of my crew were stabilising the vehicle. The paramedic could calm the girl a little when I stuffed myself next to them, and I just started making small talk while I used the torch/flashlight to look at the girls legs and hips to see how she was pinned. Because the frame of the bike and the exaust of the SUV were the reason she was stuck we opted for an airbag lift as the old rescue didn't have a crane, as the current one delivered in 2009 does. So we were prepairing, I scooted back under the car to explain to the girl and the paramedic what wer were gonna do. When I finished explaining I heard the clicks of a pair of high heel shoes, and saw a pair of feet walking towards the boots of our lieutenant and battalion chief. Then a bored but shrieking voice was heard "Are you gonna be busy with my car much longer? I have a meeting to go to, and I'm already late" Our lieutenant, a guy I've rarely seen speechless, was indeed speechless, but our battalion chief was not, I can still hear him telling that aweful woman "Miss, there is a 6 year old girl under there, we are working, so if you will excuse us, we are trying to save a life" then he apparently gestured the police to come and take her away, which was not to her liking, as she started yellling and shrieking, calling us all sorts of names that I'm not going to repeat here. So the officers put her in cuffs and brought her to the police van nearby. Later it turned out tha lady had traces of alcohol and drugs in her bloodwork, a suspended licence and she drove at least 45 mph in a 10 zone over a bridge where only city busses and cyclists were allowed. But.... back to the accident, with the car lifted a few inches, we could free the girl, and get her to the waiting ambulance, where her worried to death parents were waiting. Turned out she had some cuts, a badly bruised hip and a sprained wrist, but was otherwise healthy. Later that week we recieved a big thank you cake and a drawing from the girl and her parents thanking us for the work we did, still gives me a happy feeling. That lovely lady that drove the SUV later was sentenced by a judge to 300 hours of community service, 5 year driving suspention on top of the 18 month suspention she already had, her car was impounded and she had to pay all medical expenses and a €5000 compensation. Next time, more stories by me, I hope you enjoyed this one.

  20. From the album: Josh's Police Stuff

    Ladies and gentlemen, the very first speed champs F-150 I have built IRL! Featuring a fully functional lightbar designed, soldered, and programmed myself. The lightbar itself is made of a 3D printed 1x4 plate, specially designed to have shorter studs and holes inside to fit LEDs and help hide wires. The LEDs are driven by an adafruit Trinket M0 3v powered by a 6v dual coin cell battery pack. The truck design itself has been an ongoing project of mine for about a year now, and getting it built IRL is an awesome accomplishment for me! The license plates are loosely modeled after those found on Sheriff vehicles here in New Hampshire, the decals were all designed in Gimp and Adobe Spark. Credit to @ Sven for the rear-view mirrors!

  21. My second entry, the fire that changed me, in more ways then others. Slight word of warning though, this is not a happy or funny story, but it is a key moment in my life as I will explain along the way, and I changed the name of the family because of privacy reasons. Christmas eve 2007, just before 7pm. We were just having dinner, making jokes , just the usual firehouse banter. And just before dessert, tones " Engine 4534, Engine 4530, Ladder 4550, Battalion 4595, structure fire, restaurant Oriëntal Garden Northstreet 32, Arnemuiden" That was all we got at first, we knew the adress, it was a Chinese restaurant we sometimes stopped to get food, it is located in a town nearby, and we were all asuming that Mr. Ling just burnt his food again. We rolled out code 3, expecting that we would be stood down before we even left the street the fire station was on, I was number 1 today, the nozzleman. The Lt. called us en-route, then dispatch gave us all an update "Confirmed structure fire, called in by the owner and multiple callers" We got silent and made sure our bunkers and SCBA were properly secured and closed. Then the radio came alive and then the words echoed in the cab that haunt me still to this day "Engine 4534 to all responding units, persons reported" that short message made the whole crew silent. the only things heard were the 2 tones and the rumble of the engine. We all knew this was going to be a bad one, and looking back at the events that were unfolding, that was a major understatement. The responding battalion chief immediatly made a 3rd alarm, which is highly unusual, and a bad omen, that and when we turned onto the highway to Arnemuiden, we saw a orange glow coming from the heart of the town. . Then our Lt. radioed in that we were a few minutes out, and the Captain of the 4534 came on "4530 from 4534, you guys hurry, we need all the water we can get on this fire, the restaurant is empty, but the 4 children of the owner are still unaccounted for" his voice sounding both scared and unsure, something you would not expect from a man with nearly 24 years expierence as a firefighter. My blood became as ice in my veins hearing that, I saw the color drain from the faces of the 3 others in the cab, men and a woman I trust with my life. We came on scene, and our Lieutenant ordered me and my buddy to lay down a low pressure line, so we did, as the 4534 was focussed on the rescue as the owner and his wife confirmed their 4 daughters were still inside, and they only had 2 high pressure hosereels out and weren't advancing into the structure as the flames were already rushing out on the 2nd floor where the family lived. We had the 2 inch attack line ready faster then ever, but it felt like hours, before I opened up the nozzle and a stream of water found its way into the door opening where the staircase was, and we could advance a little bit. Step by step, we could advance, with 2 lines and 6 guys, enter the structure, up the stairs, and then we were stopped by a wall of fire on the landing, and it became worse, the heat more intense then anything I've ever expierenced, my SCBA visor started to deform, so was the visor on my helmet, it started to droop down, and the embers that were falling onto my arms burned into the suit, and started to hurt. Then I felt a tug on my harness, we were pulling out, and that was the single, most heartbreaking decision we made, because we knew, those missing kids could not be far. Hurt and gutted, we pulled out, the guys from the ladder were trying to gain access via a window, but also hit the wall of fire that stopped us. A 4th alarm was given and units from the whole county came to the small town, hoping they could make a difference. Several other rescue attempts were made, but all without success, my buddy and myself were ordered to go defensive, as our gear was too damaged to go with the assisgned interior crews, also as I later found out, my forearms and hands were pretty burned up by the fire. We gone defensive, and after 3 hours, we could bring the fire under control, but the structure was too damaged by the fire, so we could not start a recovery operation. We stayed on scene all night and morning, and it felt unreal, a lot of us started to tear up, hugs were given, we talked to eachother, trying to make sense of this situation. Normally, we would have a friendly competition and joke with the other crews, but those moments, we were one big family. We were relieved from duty by the B-shift crews, after I got my hands and arms checked out by the on scene ambulance crew, back at the station, I threw away my bunkers and helmet, as they were too damaged, and reminded me what had happened the night before. We talked with eachother and the traumatic incident support team, and bit by bit, we came to the realisation, that we did what we could, but still it felt like we failed. Sleep deprived and shook up, we went home, just to go back to Arnemuiden a few hours later, as we wanted to be there, when the on scene crews brought out the 4 bodies of the owners daughters, for me personally, I was there to have some form of closure, I couldnt save them, but I could help bring their bodies to the waiting hearses, so they could have a proper funeral. In the weeks after, I was struggeling mentally, I used every form of help I could get, but I could not find rest, I barely slept, and just wasen't myself. So I decided to help my mom on the attic, and in a big box, I found my old Lego fire sets, and I thought "Hey, I could get some cash for that" So I started to assemble the sets. And without knowing, I found peace in building, I could collect my thoughts and have a good think about what had happened, and sure enough, 3 or 4 sets further, I literally fell asleep on the floor. So I kept building, and I was starting to come around, feeling much better, although the fire left a huge mark on me, and I even thought of resigning, also from the 25 guys from Arnemuiden's Volunteer FD riding Engine 4534, 12 left the fire department as they could not cope with what happened. But I had my Lego to keep me (some form of) sane, and wandering over the internet to look for Lego fire trucks, I stumbled upon MOCpages, and found the builds of the founding members of the LFC. Guys like Tom D, Paul B, Matt J. and many others. That was the start of an adventure that is the Lego Fire Community and Studdsville Fire Department. And I'm still thankfull for the guys and gals I've met from all over the world, some of which have become close personal friends. See you next entry!

  28. As our frequent visitors already know, accessing EB! has been a little spotty over the past week during times of infrastructure migration and improvements. We are happy to report that we are now 100% on our new primary server which is using a Linux Debian based operating system to provide rock solid stability and reliability for our community. We also migrated away from MySQL over to MariaDB in hopes of cashing in on the performance gains there too considering how heavily we rely on our master database for every aspect of the site. We have pretty much always utilized Amazon S3 for our image server to provide content service to our members as well as provide a very reliable and secure off-site server for said images. I am happy to report that we are now utilizing daily off-site backups of our entire site and databases as well through similar means. This move will prevent a catastrophic failure like we experienced earlier this year, and allow us to restore the site to any point needed should data become lost or corrupt. While those changes were fairly big ones, we aren't done yet. I am constantly working on improving the user experience here. I have plans to improve our page load speeds further and make better use of caching to save on what resources are served. While this may result in a little downtime here or there, from here on out it things should be pretty reliable. I haven't forgotten about all of the feature suggestions either. There is a lot on my plate, but I will continue to implement whatever features I can, while improving the existing ones as well. This includes working on the user-selected themes when I am able. I appreciate your patience and support through all of the work. I also would like to thank the @Community Ops Team for their reliable presence on the front-end while I continue to work primarily behind the scenes. Stay tuned for more updates!

  35. Ok ok hear me out... Maybe for the winter issue of the magazine we could do the Lego Emergency Magazine 2021 Awards and have tons of categories for stuff people have created over the last year (digitally and IRL) and then I'll create a panel of judges ( @ Sven, @ Josh, @Joshua B, @ Michael P, @Sarcityfd, @Rylie Davis and anyone else you guys can think of) to decide who wins each categories. Maybe we can even get some companies to sponsor us with prizes. Just an idea, any thoughts?

  38. Just a few things to touch up, and then besides the expansion I’ll have the “finished” city I’ve wanted for so long! I’m thinking I’ll turn the red 3 story building into a hospital, instead of filling the space next to it with another building I’ll put an ambulance area or something there. Then I have to finish off the area where I have construction, and it’s pretty much done. I’ll post pics in a new album in the gallery in a few hours.

    #QualityImpersonatedHashtagDuplicated Los Angelego County Fire Department has placed this Seagrave Capitol triple combination engine in service as Engine 43. This apparatus will be housed alongside Squad 43 and Engine 343. Engine 43 also showcases the 2021 LAcoFD triple combination spec, which is based off the real LAcoFD engines. Features such as the side mounted ground ladders, trash hook, pike pole, and hard suction were crucial elements that I wanted on this rig and I was glad to be able to fit all of them all while keeping the functional compartments and the working hosebed covers.

  40. From the album: Parkview Medical Center

    The newest addition to the fleet is a critical care ambulance. This critical care ambulance is exactly the same as the standard ALS ambulance (except it has the extra stud behind the cab that @Joshua B suggested I add, which has been implemented in critical care and standard ambulances). In terms of decals, this van features the normal stuff as well as red striping, and a red cab roof to signal to helicopter it is a critical care ambulance. Just like the standard one it can hold 2 paramedics (wearing red critical care uniforms) and 1 patient, but it only responds code 3 to calls which are life-threatening. The ambulance uses the free downloadable battalion chief unit 𝐚𝐬 𝐛𝐚𝐬𝐞 for the 5 wide cab, but everything else is custom.

    Another brand new Parkview Medical Center vehicle looking amazing in this livery! This one is a supervisor car, based off a 2016 Ford Explorer. This vehicle holds 1 person (the shift supervisor) and responds to calls with any of the following vehicles in attendance: -4 or more ambulances -at least 1 critical care ambulance - at least 1 specialized unit -a homicide after being under the care of a Parkview paramedic -A situation where a paramedic was inured or an ambulance was damaged -a situation where a party wants to file a complaint against the an employee. The model itself is @ Sven 2016 Ford Explorer with only a few minor adjustments. All the decals were made by me and look amazing IMO.

    Playing round with different edited lights using Procreate instead of Picsart... I definitely like the flare better, but as you can see on the light bar, it's not cooperative with colored lights. Only against the red of the apparatus do they look very red.

  44. Welcome to the newest iteration of Emergency Bricks! After one of the most severe hiccups we've had in the past 10 years of operating the community, we ended up losing some critical databases resulting in the loss of thousands of posts, 970+ members, and other priceless user generated content. This embarrassing snafu was the result of storing backups on the same server as our main site, and we have since learned from this issue and addressed this to safeguard the community into the future. Fortunately, we did have all over our gallery images and community submitted LDD files uploaded to a third party server for safe-keeping. We are in the process of restoring those and to date have restored over 6,000 images into the gallery. Be sure to browse around and claim yours if you see something that belongs to you. In the coming days the LDD file database will be restored after some technical issues are addressed. As you can see, we are hoping to make this the best version of Emergency Bricks! to date. We have implemented many user requested features into this new iteration that we had been putting off for some time. This includes hopping onto the light/dark theme bandwagon and utilizing a custom theme that will support your personal preferences, as well as a modernized global chat for quick interactions with the community, and real-time personal conversations that are separate from the traditional community inbox system. We hope to continue to develop and refine the site and allow your contributions to take a more front and center position on the website, highlighting the best you have to offer in your galleries, downloads, blogs, and clubs. I am grateful to have @Sven at my side helping with the day to day community moderation and general upkeep so I can focus on the feature development and behind the scenes workload. He has proven to be an invaluable asset to not only me, but the community as a whole. As the community continues to (re)grow and expand, additional community staff will be onboarded as needed. A community notice will be posted if we have an opening for more staff. In summary, I hope you find that although we suffered a large setback, we are hoping to utilize this fresh start of sorts to become better than ever. Thank you for your continued support and dedication to the Emergency Bricks! community.
