Posted these this weekend to the Fire Trucks at War Facebook group. North Carolina Army National Guard Oshkosh/Pierce tactical fire apparatus, as photographed in parades in Raleigh.

The TFFT pumper/tanker (top) was shot in August 2009. The HEWATT water tender (bottom) was shot in June 2012. Both are based at the Armory at the airport. (And housed in a relatively new fire station building, if memory serves. Maybe readers can advise and/or get me hooked up to pay a photo visit one day.)

Two identical trucks are based in Salisbury, with the NCNG UH60 Blackhawk unit. They're operated by the 430th (Salisbury) and 677th (Morrisville) Engineering Firefighter Teams. Here's an HPfirefighter.com story about the teams and their trucks. Click to enlarge:
