      I set a new trend eh? :) Good luck with the chevrons. Reflective tape is very nice. 

  4. Managed to purchase close to 45 of the older Fire style figures and a mix of other fire style.

      ~JD~

      Nice catch but I'm a bit confused, what fire style figures are you refering to?

  5. Debating on either a KME or an HME for a new department, it will be a rescue, then I'll have an engine

      @TJ- Close but the protesters are claiming excessive force and not race. But it looks like it's on the verge.

      I see, there are different perspectives to this situation. Mine is that an officer almost got killed and they just want attention. Also the girl wouldn't have been killed if she didn't steal the car. My math teacher has a quote, "Choices have consequences, so choose wisely." There was a case similar to this in Pittsburgh, but the man was paralyzed after trying to run away from police after they pulled him over.

      @JD that link provides an accurate training in my opinion, @TJ Considering the family thinks of it as excessive force, and they get more support against the officer, then it will turn into a Ferguson

  7. Added some new pictures to the gallery

  8. Might make a Pink Pierce Arrow if I can get more parts

      I assume for breast cancer awareness. Would it be a part of the OBFD fleet or part of the pink heels tour?

      You work for 14 to 21 days on deployment then get 24-48 hours off. On deployment you typically work 16 hours a day with a 8 hours off but during that 8 hours you're not necessarily resting. Seasonal FFs usually work from May to September and make between $11 and $20 an hour along with overtime and hazard pay.

  17. Built a rescue engine and an engine, now to the tanker. All Pierce! Tanker is going to be a Kenworth/Pierce.

  18. got a picture of one of OCNJ's STORM units. Also working on my response guidlines

  19. Going to be building an F250 ambulance, maybe with an OCFD color scheme or full yellow

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      I'm pretty sure Ambos can only be built on the F-550 or E-350 due to the weight requirements.

      Why couldn't they buy some used apparatus and save a bunch of money.

    3. oceanbrickfire

      oceanbrickfire

      @T.J. also their looking to buy rigs equipped with foam since 21 and 23 had 50 gallons of foam and they didn't work right. I'm going to talk to some guys about it and then tell you

    4. T.J. Brammer

      T.J. Brammer

      Lake Dodge Fire Rescue

      Depends on the MFG/model you've got in your fleet right now and how much you like them.

    2. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      It will also depend on the airport needs and requirements of the apparatus.
