The 'Bread trucks' are purely functional pieces of equipment, they are not meant to look good or impress, they carry out a vital role and seem to serve the Squad companies well..

Squad 1 operates a International style rig as their 2nd rig,  which i believe also carries certain rescue equipment as well as HAZMAT gear. The remainder of the Squads use the box vans for thier HAZMAT role.

Squad 1 crossmans TRV 1 a 1999 Frightliner with a 2001 E-one Body. On one side it carries all hazmat equioment and responsed around brooklyn with it. On the other side it carries all Collapse Rescue Equipment and can respond to all 5 buroughs if need be.

As stated earlier all the squads have a 2nd piece.  They cover so many different roles it's impossible to carry all their equipment on a rescue engine so they use the 2nd piece to carry the equipment they don't need immediately upon arrival.

I believe Squad 1 had their second piece before HAZMAT became as big as it is today.

Does any one know if squad 18 is going to be replaced with a new seagrave rescue-pumper or is it going to be repaired and placed back in service?

Guys in the house say it's just rumors..... They are actually running with I believe a 93 or 94 spare due to brake problems with the 98 spare

To bad the fire department cant make up thier mind what they are going to do.Ilike the squad rigs fdny has nice looking trucks but how long does the department think a hard run and beat up spare is going to last in manhattan?Squad 18 i think is the bussiest squad in the city so i dont think a 11 year old spare would last long.Would like to see the new seagraves with a rescue body.

Squad 18 might just be the slowest Squad in the city...most of there boxes are in downtown area due to 41 coming over the brigde and taking in all the harlam boxes.
