06/24/08 38 W, 1 I - + 15 - 12 Stony Hill's Rescue


Stony Hill Rescue 26 is expected in early July, the third of three 2008 Spartan/Hackney heavy rescues. Hopkins and Wendell have already received theirs. The picture below was taken June 19.
 





FYI – It’s a little different and “slightly” shorter than the standard “pinched and dropped frame” Hackney design that Wendell and Hopkins has. One noticable difference is that is has ROM roll-up doors. Striping and lettering still to come… The design is a first for Hackney and so far the process has went well. Overall, it appears to be a good build and we are excited about the new addition.

AC, how does the size compare to RFD’s Pierce Rescues? More storage or less?

Probably about the same to slightly more, but there may be a little less in the interior due to the ladder tunnel (since it’s a ladder/service truck). However, there are HUGE coffin compartments up top.

Are they equipped with cascade units?
Silver - 06/25/08 - 17:13

No we chose not to put a casad system due to the fact that Wake Forest and Bayleaf both having air trucks.

What is a “casad” system? Is that made in Iraq?

It is on it’s way. On my way to work today, I saw Stony Hill’s new truck being driven from Washington to Stony Hill on it’s delivery drive with a Stony Hill chase car/chief’s car behind it. Looked nice. Wish we could have a truck like that for our department. Congrats!!!
