When Ferrara first delivered rearmounts to FDNY they delivered a few lemons.. one is the FDNY 150 commemorative truck. What happened to the others?

81 and 169 were from original order and damaged in Sandy and replaced.....They were OOS alot before Sandy finished them. 24 I believe was also from original order and a lemon too.

The lemons were L-4,24 & 29. As stated L-4 became the 150 rig, I think at least one of the others is at rock for either probie school or cts. Thats the 3 I knew of there maybe more but these 3 came from original first order and i think the issues were resolved for future rigs.

Actually L4’s Rig had gone into the spare pool and 136 in queens had it as a long term spare after their rig got totaled in an accident.
Believe 29 became the ceremonial 150 rig.

Correct on 4’s truck going to 136 for long term spare use, one became the ceremonial and one is at CTS.
81, 137, 169 were subjected to high water during Sandy so they had their trucks replaced.

Since the oldest Ferraras are 2011, when will the bidding process start for their replacements?

24 truck became the 150th rig. 4 truck went to 136 as a long time spare. Their seagrave was damaged beyond repair In an ice storm when it slid on a patch of ice. Then it went to CTS. As for 29s old rig. I’m not sure if it’s whereabouts

Sorry for a dumb question, but what is "CTS".

Many thanks.

OK, Lesson Number One: Always go for the obvious. I should have learned that years ago.
