Anyone know if these 2 trucks involved in the NBA are totalled or being repaired?

Could 113 be replaced, if needed by the ceremonial 150 truck?
The Ceremonial 150 Truck became such because it was unreliable as a line Rig.

The ceremonial rig was considered a lemon. I think there were 3 lemons which were replaced by newer built rigs. The ceremonial rig was done by Ferrara and given back to use as it is. I think Ladders 4,24 & 29 were the units that got lemons and had replacement new rigs given to them.

10/15/19, E249 and L113 struck eachother while responding to an odor of smoke I believe.

What is the story with these 2 rigs, seems like both units are still running spares.
