so this means that the squad body apparatus is going to be used as the new squad 154  and the transition has been already started ( by swapping vehicles with 154 ), is that what you are sharing ?

I would have to say so, this truck was the former engine assigned to 154, and is now labeled as 165, it would appear they are swapping the 2014 squad like engine from 165 to 154.

Correct. 165ís squad style rig is going to 154 and 154ís rig is now E165. Now, as for the captain that asked for 165 to have a squad style rig in the first place, back to square 1 lol.

Do you have any solid information supporting that?  Based on recent history calling it Squad 154 seems more likely.

Yes, if that's the case it would certainly be a change in direction but that's nothing unusual these days.

For those who thought l was crazy when l stated that E 165 was going to swap rigs with E 154 ( New SQ Co. 8 ) soon.
It's ok I'm crazy anyway...

It was announced in the paper as being Squad 8.
Also another rumor I heard was that once the remaining squads will be renumbered with the new cad system. Could be just a bad rumor. Any dispatchers can confirm it deny?

Since we all know how accurately newspapers report things I'm sure most of us took leave story about the new squad was a huge grain of salt!

The sign they had on display at the announcement said Squad 8.

I heard a rumor that Seagrave would be building at least 1 new Squad rig. I wonder if the rig reassignment is only temporary until a new one is built. It would also wouldnít hurt to have a second spare Squad floating around when its all said and done.
