    The new truck was put in service last Thursday. Had its inaugural call out yesterday. Damn thing is bigger than some of the fire trucks...

    We are still sorting out what gear will go in which compartment. I will post pictures of the interior soon.

    Completely forgot about the interior pictures. Sorry.

    Almost all of the exterior compartments are just open square or rectangular spaces. Each diver has their own locker that includes two tank racks, hanging bar, and two shelves behind a lockable door. Each locker can be accessed through a door on the outside so we aren't getting in each others way. The city mechanics fabricated a movable rack for the Zodiac motor that one person can manouver with little effort.

    What kind of compressor did you install on it?

    Aww man ... what a shame! I have worked with several rescue trucks that weren't half as big, fancy or nice a yours and they all insisted on a portable compressor for on scene air fills.

    Oh well ... next time.:wink:
