Glenbrick Fire Department Truck 31
Castle Beach Fire Department is back! Sorta... Anyway, here is the "newest" rig I've built! Truck 31 may be 32 years old, but she still gets the job done! As the tallest aerial ladder device in the region, Truck 31 responds to many high rise incidents in the surrounding communities.
About this creation


The on-board pump and tank allow the crew to hit the fire as soon as they get on scene. The pump also supplies the waterway on the aerial device.



In addition to the ground ladders stored in the rear of the apparatus, extension ladders can be found on either side to allow for rapid deployment.



Truck 31 also contains equipment for high angle rescues and extraction tools.



Truck 31 is staffed by a crew of 4 and responds to 6-10 calls a day.



Yes, all stabilizers are fully functional at the same time!



Truck 31 is ready for action!









This 1986 E-ONE 135 quint is assigned to the City of Glenbrick as Truck 31. As the first due apparatus for structure fires, this truck is well equipped for tackling any challenge. Probably the most unique feature of this rig is the working function of all the stabilizers!

Technical specs:
1986 E-ONE Hurricane 135 ladder
1250 gpm pump
300 gal water
163 ft of ground ladders
Holmatro extraction tools
Forcible entry tools
Ventilation tools
High angle equipment

Credits:
David Hensley for the E-ONE cab design
Smigol for the stabilizers inspiration

Quoting Daniel Ringuette Great job! I like the stabilizers and the extension ladder is very nice too! Well done!
Thanks Daniel! I've been looking for a simple yet functional design for the stabilizers, and Smigol's is the most compact of them all. So I modified the design to fit the scale of this rig. The extension ladders are pretty rare on BL, so I was lucky to get my hands on a couple of them!
Quoting Alexander Lutz Ah, a new design. You never fail to impress. This one seems a bit more dull, but it might just be me being upset at my application. Keep it up!
Thank you!

Quoting Sven ;o) Thanks for asking my friend. I'm fine so far. Booked the flight tickets for my next NYC visit in Nov this year. And how are you doing my friend? Thanks for the explanation regarding the truck. For me it looks very fragile especially when it comes to the bodywork. But it's great to hear that it's not that fragile ;)
That's awesome to hear! I'm doing well! Currently swamped with work and life in general, but I can't complain. I only wish I had more time to build :p

Quoting Sven ;o) Very nice work my friend. But it seems to me that this one is very fragile. How long does it take to get this beautiful lookin rig in position with ladder raised and stabilizers lowered?
Thank you Sven! It's actually not fragile. The stabilizers are connected in pretty much the same way Smigol used his https://www.flickr.com/photos/smigol_/9898273633/ So it's pretty stable. Pulling out the stabilizers does take some time, as the tension is pretty strong. Setting up the aerial device doesn't take that long either. The only restriction is that it can either be resting on the truck or about 70 degrees haha... Hope you're doing well!
