Truck 22 operates this single axle Aerialscope, a rarity in both the LFC and real life.
About this creation
The bumper has the standard stabilizers, a bumper mounted Q2B siren, another Q2B siren in the bumper, and the air horns!
Cab details include forward scene lighting, and air conditioning unit, and the NightScan.
The body of the rig offers plenty of space for various equipment.
The solid boom is well known for its stability even while flowing 1500 gallons of water per minute!
Rear facing windows reduces the number of blind spots.
This Aerialscope device has three extending sections, just like the real one!
The Aerialscope can also be setup as a storefront blitz.
Diversity of color schemes (Left to Right): CBX Foam 10, MSFD Truck 22, SFR Squirt 11, LAcoFD Engine 105, FDCB Engine 204.
Mt. Studstown is a bustling city northeast of Castle Beach and is frequently called upon for M/A. Operating out of three stations, Mount Studstown Fire Department responds to roughly 7500 calls per year. The apparatus shown here is assigned to Truck 22, a 2014 Seagrave Marauder II/ 1986 Baker 75’ Aerialscope. When the Aerialscope device was remounted in 2014, the apparatus committee looked into placing it on a larger chassis. However, many of the streets in Mt Studstown are crowded and would make it difficult for a longer rig to maneuver. Truck 22 is staffed by a crew of 5 and carries structural firefighting gear and limited technical rescue gear.
