anyone know what the difference in specs are with the current squad 8 (the old engine 165 haz tec engine) and the other squad spec. rigs from 2013? Are they pretty much the same or is there a huge difference?

I hope so ... anything to deflect from those chevrons
They aren't designed to look good, they are there to increase the safety for the brothers, that's what really matters! How the truck looks is only for members of departments that don't do much firefighting! Safety and functionality are what matters.

Because the 2014 they have wasn't spec'd as a squad it was a Haz Tech rig
Yes and no… it was not originally purchased to be a squad but it was built off the same exact spec. The current 2013/2014 squads are identical; they just served as squads from day one in service.

I guess this brings up an old point that was probably discussed and beaten to death… squad 1 was the original in Brooklyn and then the 6 others (18, 41, 61, 252, 270, 288) were formed in the late 90s… will those all change to squad 2, 3, 4, 5, 6? Otherwise E154 should have just went to squad 154.

They tried to replace all Squads but only 1 was approved. They do not have a current good spare/Reserve Squad so this current 2014 will be the Reserve Squad 800.

I doubt they will change to those numbers, and no clue as to why the ''8''.
