So... I'm just curious as to some of the general and more specific names given to apparatus from the US and around the world... for example, our pumper is called an engine (yeah, i know alot of people call it that), airel apparatus around our area are refered to as towers, ladders, airel's, trucks... an ambulance is known as a bus or a rig.

More specifically... we have a huge tanker that we call the whale and our older pumper is known as the "popemobile" due to the very high roof on the crew area.

Depending on the condition of the truck at any given point, Rescue 2 is sometimes referred to as a POS, haha.

We had an old tanker that we called The Turtle. This tanker was slow as all get out and seemed to want to roll over on you any time you took a turn but man it would go anywhere.

An idea that i have is to call one truck Fire Boy and a truck Fire Girl. That is what i think, also Flame Boy.
