After looking at several articles I'm finding that, it seems, each state has there own term for a Squad. With several variations from east coast to west coast. North to south states. What do you consider a Squad? And what compliment of tools does it carry? I'm used to the FDNY's version of a Squad Company. An engine that carries additional equipment for Haz-Mat, High/Low angle rope rescue, extrication equipment and air bags. Now I'm courious since my dept is going to purchase a new engine. This might be the way to go.

A "Squad" can also be a group of firefighters operating without any kind of vehicle at all.  (Think the fire equivalent to a "rifle squad" here.)


A "Squad" can also be an entire organization whose primary purpose is Rescue and/or Lifesaving.

Thank you all for replying. I didn't check this thread until now since the first reply was search for this topic....
