02/10/13 137 W, 4 I - + 4 - 1 New Haz-Mat Support Unit


That's a new haz-mat support unit parked inside Station 2 on Pecan Road. Old Rescue 2, a 2002 International/SVI, has been placed in service as SR 2 SR 1. The truck was removed from rescue service on January 31. It replaces a 1991 Simon-Duplex/E-One haz-mat truck, which has been a support unit since 2006. The new SR 1 is equipped for towing, and will pull a new foam trailer as needed. The two-axle trailer was relocated from the Keeter Training Center. It was delivered in June, and featured in this blog post. The station also houses a 2006 Freightliner/Hackney tractor-drawn haz-mat truck. Haz-Mat 1 is housed in the old maintenance shop building, behind the fire station.
 





Will SR 1 still be equipped with Haz-Mat tools, or will it become strictly a foam truck? Will station 2 have both SR 1 and SR 2 housed there along with Haz-Mat 1 and the foam trailer?

What will happen with the old SR-1 Simon duplex?

Ok, confusion on my part, I thought the simon duplex was going to be towing the foam trailer. Thank you for your response. It is exciting to see the progressive changes taking place in the R.F.D, Keep up the good work and stay safe guys.
