Ok Travis, I'm going to go hardball here, well... kind of... and ask you what exactly are you asking? You've been a firefighter for 1.5 years now and I think it's important to remind you that your question was about trucks, not engines or other types of fire apparatus. The use of the term Trucks refers to ladder companies. This is why the folks on a ladder truck are called "Truckies".

There are so many different types of fire department rolling stock out there. Perhaps if you reworded your post to What Type of Apparatus do Y'all Have?

We have KME's just for the record, and we are talking all of our engine (pumpers) and our one truck company.

Stay safe!

a Mass Casualty Trailer
2 Pumpers.
1 Rescue.
1 Aerial.
1 Tanker.

3 Chief Vehicles.
These types of topics seem to be of overriding concern to volunteers. What kind of apparatus, gear, color of helmets and lights appears to be the overarching reason many volunteers are in here and moreover the singular reason for juniors. Asking for types and pictures of your apparatus falls squarely into the category of stamp and coin collecting; a hobby.

Hobby:
1. an activity or interest pursued for pleasure or relaxation and not as a main occupation:

Hobbyist:
1. Noun - a person who pursues an activity in their spare time for pleasure

We have fire engines and fire trucks, we are the fire department. I am with Jack on this. I liked Greenmans comment on another issue, we need a like or dislike button, I am saying dislike on this.
They are big, red, and pump water... nuff said
That is a lot!
Is it really the Queens land or are you free from her reign? Here we have Mary land, Mary lives there.
Jack,

I know a lot of career firefighters wich your reply affects on.

I think your reply is a bit degenerating to us volunteers. Most of us aren't the way you describe us.

We're firefighters for the same reasons career firefighters are.
It's not a hobby, it's a second job.
