I hope they don't order the new GMC trucks with the stupid looking star type chrome rims. They make the truck look like a cattle rancher from Texas. Not a good look  for a FDNY BC vehicle.

A new 2015 Ford F-350 was delivered for the SOC Rebreather Ops. Truck (FM15052), and EC-419 got a 2014 Ford F-450/Reading for Emergency Crew 419 if that helps anyone wiki updated as well

EC="Emergency Crew." These are the roadside mechanics who handle breakdowns on the road of all FDNY apparatus on the road or come to the firehouse/EMS station and repair minor problems. The "419" is the vehicle number although not the Dept. vehicle registration number.

I thought that was just called the Shop's Emergency Response Unit, I didn't realize it actually had a formal name.

So am I understanding that the new BC and EMS trucks may be Fords?

i just saw a liquidation auction of odyssey specialty vehicles listed on A.J. Willner auction site.  This might explain why their hasn't been any movement on the new battalion chiefs vehicles.  I wonder if they'll do a rebid.

Just saw they awarded the contract to berg family enterprises LLC for $14,440,790.  It also said berg family enterprises was doing business as Sunrise Chevrolet.  So apparently these trucks will carry the chevy badge.
