Yep... thats right. Il get a picture of my fire gear when i head to the fire department. Good stuff, if your old enough you should consider joining your local fepartment. So you know, the motorola thing is my pager, its sick. They sound an alarm and it beeps retardedly loud it pisses my friend off, and they tell you info. Also i got keys to almost all the rooms in the brand new fire department, the place has a movie theatre with like 5 lazy boy chairs. Also has 2 bars (i can jus go get a soda or somethin if im thirsty and nearby) Its amazing.

That is the truck that has the hydraulic apparatus, i most likely will train with it to learn to use it in that event, but odds are i wont be using it in a real situation for at least 2 years. If there is someone trapped in a car and it is required that we fork the car up, we need someone to do it who knows what they are doing. I start my training on apparatus tomorrow.

The truck also has rediculously bright light poles that mechanically rise up from up. They are remote controlled. It also has a huge air compresser, god knows what you could launch with it.

No idea what the horsepower is, but i can guaruntee its alot... Thing is packing weight...

As for the keep back 200 feet, im not really sure, i was driving beside it earlier today passing the fire department and it was bumper to bumper.
Odds are it is for accident scene etc etc.

That truck also packs the handheld gas saws that basically rip through just about whatever they need to.

By the way, in comparison to the actual ladder truck, the cost of that one is nothing. The ladder truck cost over 1 million dollars.
