Does Squad 1 still have the TRV? What was the difference between a regular squad support unit and squad's 1 TRV?

Yes they still have the second piece. Originally half the vehicle had hazmat gear like the other squads and the other half had technical rescue gear. Not sure how much tech gear they still carry in the second piece now that there are SSLís and more than one collapse rescue. The current vehicle is identical to the other squads second piece

The collapse rescues are low frequency units, donít think they will be replaced anytime soon unless there are issues with them mechanically.

The rig went to texron and was cleaned up and new lettering was put on. Iím sure it will carry the same compliment of tools as the other 7
