01/20/12 93 W, 1 I - + 5 - 1 Cary Receives New Rescues

Two new Pierce Velocity rescue trucks were delivered yesterday to the Cary Fire Department. They'll replace a pair 2000 Ford F-550/KME light-duty units. The new Rescue 2 and Rescue 4 were spec'ed the same as Rescue 7, and carry a full compliment of ground ladders, breathing air compressors and fill stations, light tower, etc. Plus full extrication and fireground support stuff. Cary's new Pierce Velocity platform ladder is due today. See this prior posting about the trucks, including a good reader discussion. See more photos from Lee Wilson.

I’m not a truck committe or have to deal with budgets but can someone clue us in on the additional cost of painted doors compared to non painted?
I notice Raleigh has both. If I recall the newer truck companies are painted.

And I may have missed it but are these rescues fully staffed and if so how many personel are assigned?

from what I understand if there is any cost it is negligable. And yes they are fully staffed and assigned 1 Capt, 1 Eng, 2 FF. We ride minimum of 3 personnel.
