The retrofitted 2002 Seagrave SP02013, with the rescue pumper body of the 2001 Seagrave SP01005, went into service as Squad 18 on August 21, 2009.  It is now carried as SP 02013.

Shops project -Fleet Services removed the rescue pumper body and mounted it on the chassis of a 2002 Seagrave 1000 gpm pumper originally assigned to Engine 212 which was disbanded in 2003. They had to lengthen the wheel base by just over 16 inches. The cab and chassis of the damaged squad had been damaged beyond economical repair

Kudos to the masters at the FDNY shops for another job well done.  They are never appreciated enough.

Doubt it, I took this pic before the crash and both trucks look exactly the same. I can't tell the difference. Maybe someone else can see any differences

The picture that catry posted the link for, the Squad has diamond plate behind the door, the original Squad that Haz-Mat posted does not have diamond plate behind the door.

Yep you are correct. Also looking close the www.nyc.gov is on the white strip behind the front door in that pic and on my pic it is in the yellow stripe. They did a good job, almost unnoticable at a quick glance. Matter of fact I took this pic last October after that fire on Fulton House where they had 5 10-45's code 1. They were at 33/9 picking up some more bag valve masks to replace the ones they used at that fire

The pic catry posted is that of SP02013, if you download the pic and zoom in you can just make out the number just before the pixels break up.
If nothing changes, everything will stay the same..
