Do satellite units stage at a hydrant not being used and wait to lay there hose as needed. Where would there normal be? Most of the time I see it up front and not in a good position to be used

Itís hard to tell from the two pics , but whatís the reason for the Diamond plate covering over the factory roof of the cab ? Something new ...Never seen it before on a City rig.

I read on another site that the cab roof of the Peterbilt was not strong enough to hold someone standing on it, so the diamond plate was added. Don't know if there's any truth to that.

I also read they needed the flat diamond plate to mount the lights and other rooftop equipment.  The roofs of the Peterbilt trucks are possibly composite and will not hold this equipment on their own.  The other question I have about these rigs is why so long to get them in-service?  These have been around awhile.  I know they are new, but are hose wagons. Other then the new deluge gun, there does not seem to be a whole lot to do to train the crews prior to being placed in-service.  Is there an issue with acceptance of these units?

I asked the same question a few weeks ago .

^^^^^^^It's a building that is part of the wastewater treatment plant that is next to Training School, not on FDNY property.
