About this creation


The slide out section increases space for command purposes. This section contains several computers for accessing the extensive databases of various chemicals.



Despite being more of a personnel carrier, the apparatus stores a wide range of equipment to deal with whatever the firefighters may come across.




The custom slide out has windows on all sides to increase visibility.



Hazmat 1 is on a walk-in configuration, giving a place for the firefighters to dress appropriately for the situation.



The rear of the apparatus also shows the extensive Code 3 lighting to warn the general public. After the accident to the previous rig, it was imperative to add even more warning systems to our rigs.



Officer's side shows the door to access the body, just like on Rescue 1 and Rescue 2.



There is also a window above the first compartment. The other side does not have a window since the laboratory section is located there. The laboratory section consists of a Class 1 biological hood, that has its own air supply so as to not contaminate anyone, microscopes, and an emergency shower for decontamination purposes.



The Spartan Gladiator cab is capable of seating the 8 members comfortably.

Castle Beach Fire Department is proud to present the brand new Hazmat 1. Built on a 2017 Spartan Gladiator cab with SVI bodywork, this rig was delivered on May 6, 2017 and replaces the 2016 Seagrave Marauder II Hazmat rig that was totaled in an accident. As the role of the Hazardous Materials Team evolves, so did the apparatus. Differences in the new rig as compared to the previous Seagrave include the addition of a slide-out compartment, which added space for command personnel. While it appears that the rig has less compartmentation than the previous rig, the rig contains the same amount of equipment and still has extra space for new technologies, thanks to the awesome work of the manufacturer! This apparatus can serve multiple roles on the scene such as a command center, rehab area, mobile laboratory, and a changing area.

No prob my friend, know that from own experiences.

Quoting Sven ;o) You're very welcome my friend :) Yes, that's a great idea. One of the reasons why I changed to plain background. Take a couple pics with different light settings and you'll see how the pics turn out. You'll get the right feeling for it. Best light (imho) is daylight. Be aware of using Led lights. They have a tendency to let colours look different. I know that from own experiences. Hard to make out if it's dark blue or black as example XD
Thanks for the heads up about the LED lights, because I was going to buy those XD

Quoting Sven ;o) On the pics your rigs all look like they are made of dark red parts. But they are standard red right? Nice work on this one my friend.
Thank you Sven! Yes, all the parts are standard red. It might look darker because the ground is dark. I need to buy a few lights to make the details stand out even more, but obviously that requires a lot of trial and error. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! I truly appreciate it!
