02/04/12 144 W, 4 I - + 5 - 7 UPDATED: Durham's New Haz-Mat Truck

February 4
Updated with photo from Lee Wilson, who posed both Haz-Mat 13 and Engine 13 for photos this week. The 2011 International/CW Specialty Vehicles was placed in service on January 21. Futures include walk-in command module and top-mounted light tower. It's staffed by Engine 13, which operations a 2009 Sutphen pumper. Sunlight and a good angle makes all the difference! See photos of both trucks.

Our friends at DurhamFire.net have shared these photos of the Durham Fire Department's new haz-mat truck, a 2011 International that's soon to be in service at Station 13 on South Miami Boulevard. It replaces a decades-old Ford that's shown below in vintage yellow, in a years-ago shot from Lee Wilson. The truck was subsequently painted red. More details on the new truck as they're known.
