Fast Response Unit

This Fast Response vehicle is based on the San Diego Fire Departments' new Fast Response Units. It can quickly assess incidents, put out smaller fires and provide first aid.
About this creation

This Fast Response Squad has a two person crew, one of whom is a paramedic. They travel in a rig with a complement of tools, equipment and medical supplies in under-deployed areas where it can respond more quickly than the nearest fire engine.



The design makes use of Lego's new vehicle mudguard parts and the realistic wheels included in the Speed Champion sets. The result is what in person appears as the most realistic looking fire apparatus I've built.




The design was largely inspired by this San Diego Fire Department rig. Read more about them here.




The rig is capable of assessing and treating a patient prior to the arrival of an ambulance and/or fire engine. The crew is able to provide a quick “size-up” at serious emergencies to advise dispatchers and the other responding fire units what they are facing as they arrive. It also carries a small amount of water to begin firefighting.







Let me know what you think. Thanks for your comments!

Quoting Tom Smith Looks fantastic as always!! Any chance of a pic/instructions or something on how the middle compartment is done and the rear wheel arches? My email is smithtrw24@gmail.com if you wouldn't mind sending them to me.
Thanks, Tom. I'm on deadline for a lot of non-Lego projects, but if I get time I'll send you some photos. I can tell you that section is built upside down. The compartment doors are connected with Bricklink part 30414 and part 4625. It did take some engineering.

Quoting Lane Spyksma An outstanding build (as usual)! Keep up the great work, maybe you should make an incident sometime (hint, hint :D)!
Thanks, Lane. I definitely need to do that. The rigs are ready, but I'd need to build a scene. https://www.flickr.com/photos/7568742@N04/29476611330/
