  1. New Side Department:

    I will be starting a new side department. This agency is a merger between 6 fire/rescue departments, a fire department, and an ambulance agency. The department will have 3 4-station battalions and 1 3-station battalion. There will be 2 divisions - Division 1 (Battalions 1 & 4) and Division 2 (Battalions 2 & 3). Each Division will have a Division Chief that will respond to calls when both battalions in their division are called to the same alarm.

    Each battalion will have a Battalion Headquarters, training facility and minor maintenance facility (oil changes on apparatus, fixing SCBAs and such, except for the First Battalion). Each Battalion has a Battalion Chief, Chief Mechanic, and EMS Chief.

    The First Battalion will have the Department Headquarters, the major repair shop, and miscellaneous storage facilities. 

    The 2nd and 3rd Battalions are each on the waterfront, and as such will have a combination of boats and water rescue apparatus in addition to the regular units. The 1st and 4th are both landlocked, and will run the typical units. 

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

  3. Anyone looking to sign Mutual Aid contracts?

      @Ed O Algonquin Fire Department https://algonquinfd.weebly.com/  Do you have a website other then youtube?

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

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

      I am just a builder.

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

  5. 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. 

  6. Thinking of a new side department. It's going to be industrial - well, kind of. Basically it will be a fire brigade (meaning the FFs do other non-FD-related jobs unless there is an emergency) that protects a massive industrial farm. They will operate several brush trucks for the fields, a few structural engines, a few tankers, one tower ladder and one tech rescue unit (in case of grain bin emergencies). All of the engines will carry foam due to the farm equipment storage garages on the property. What does everyone think about this?

      Sounds interesting!! Did you get the idea from any real fire brigade?

      Nope, just something random I came up with

  7. Still waiting on parts for Engine 1. Hopefully I'll get them some time this century.

  8. Just curious if there's anyone willing to touch up my decal design so I can print it?

      Sadly I don't have the time for doing it. Sorry Ed

  9. Really want to make some sort of special rig to designate as a parade/event piece, but not really sure what kind of rig I want to go with. Any suggestions?

  10. Updated Engine 6 will be posted soon; expect additional rigs in the coming months. 

  11. Anyone have any ideas for a Ford Expedition design?


  13. Any interesting builds in progress?

  14. (Repost because something happened with the link) 

    Found this awesome build for the newer Ford Super Duty pickups. Unfortunately I think it's out of scale...

      Just noticed, apparently the link didn't post

  16. When Stud.io 2.0 decides to accept your BL password but the BL site says it's the wrong password

    1. Ed O

      Ed O

      And then BL decides not to accept your wanted list over an unrecognized part that you're 99.9% sure you didn't use in your build

      It's Stud.io 2.0 BETA, it's still in a experimental/design phase, so there are still bugs that have to be dealt with.
      Maybe it would be more helpfull to report this to the Stud.io design team then venting it on here.

      I already did report it. 

  17. Absolutely terrible news out of NYC - both a detective and Deputy Chief of the NYPD committed suicide this week

    1. AKoroski


      That's horrible.

  18. Finally have a tiller design that I'm happy with. Can't wait to show it.

  19. Why is MOCPages broken every 2.5 seconds

  20. Thinking about using the "Clubs" feature to make a club/group as a pilot run since none have been started yet. Anyone want to join?

  21. Am I the only person that thinks the "roof" windows on the Quantum look stupid?

    1. ~JD~


      They kind of are, they don’t really improve visibility since the glass is like looking through choppy water. Not sure if they improved them but the ones I’ve seen are pointless.

  22. Having one of those days... can't get the design to cooperate and I think it's giving me a migraine 

  23. Am I the only person that thinks hitting the arrows/arrow keys while looking at the pics in the "New Creations!" slideshow it show go to the next creation and not photos in the same album as the one you're viewing 

  24. Seeing lots of people join, but the only newer person that posts anything is Dennis. Wonder why.
