About this creation










She's back! Originally serving as Rescue 1, the recently refurbished 1978 Mack CF returns to frontline service as Decon 1. This particular piece of apparatus operated as Rescue 1 for 12 years prior to being replaced by a 1990 Pierce Arrow Heavy Duty Rescue. Following this period, it was refurbished before being pressed into service as Hazmat 1 and served in that capacity until 2005. It was the reserve hazmat unit for almost 10 years before it was refurbished again this year. Despite many advances with scene lighting, electronic sirens, and the like, the department opted to keep as many details as original as possible. This included retaining the classic B&M Super Chief siren, Federal Signal Aerodynic halogen rotator lightbar, and repainting the compartment doors. Since this apparatus is cross-staffed by Hazmat 1, there was no need for the department to close the open cab, which in turn, saved the department a couple thousand dollars. Upgrades to the apparatus included a new Detroit Diesel DD13 engine and a new rear door for the walk-in compartment


Technical Specs:
1978 Mack CF walk-in rescue
B&M Super Chief siren
Detroit Diesel DD13 engine
Federal signal Aerodynic lightbar
Decontamination equipment
Absorbents
55-gallon drums
Mobile lab for chemical analysis

Quoting Scotty Jones @Michael we have one truck with hazmat equipment on it for calls, we have a fast/rit team, and we have a 24 hr staffed department for any additional mutual aid.
How many apparatus do you have, and how much resources are you able to allocate? By the end of May, I will have 9 engines, 4 ladders, 1 rescue, 1 US&R, 1 hazmat, and other special call vehicles. Special operations and up to 2 task forces (4 engines, 2 ladders) can be sent for mutual aid.

Quoting Sven J. Yeah, I know many lightbar manufacturers and their products ;) Btw, you could use the retro style Aerodynic with Solaris Led's inside XD FDNY is using this version on many of their rigs. But I prefer the old version with rotators. The reason for it is there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIwG56309wU ;) Ps: Here is an interesting production video from the 90s ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RFrE_GNQz8
I love the old school rotators too! They don't make them like they used to haha

Quoting Scotty Jones I have a 1985 MACK CF/2016 Pierce Aerialscope, all LEDS, a 1979/2014 MACK CF hdr all LED, and a 1982 MACK CF/2016 Pierce Wagon Pumper all LEDS. It looks fine, but whatever. Hey do we run mutual aid?
I don't think so. What is your department's protocol?

Quoting Scotty Jones try a basic LED barlight instead, I think personally it looks better, at least on the macks I have created.
Thanks for your input... Since this is a 28-yr old apparatus, I wanted to keep the retro Federal Signal Aerodynic lightbar. Ideally, it would be more of an oval shape; but since Lego does not have an oval shaped 1x1 brick, I'm left with a circular shape. Plus, I feel LED lights are more modern. You know what they say: "You can't teach new tricks to old dogs!" haha :)

Quoting Scotty Jones No @Michael that is not what WIP means, WIP means its not completed yet, not that you have on temporary parts....
Work in progress means it's subject to change
