    FMC "Custom"???

    I don't believe Clay-Genoa, now Allen Clay Joint Fire District, has their truck anymore. I stopped by each of their three FIRE stations Saturday on the way to a family get together to peek in their widows to see if it was still there. No luck. Clay-Genoa, Clay Center, and Allen Township fire...

    KME 2000 to 2009

    There is only one other department in the area with a newer KME and they haven't had any problems with their engine. Philly and LA Co don't seem to have issues either. It's interesting to me that our three engines are all having issues. I just wonder if they rushed our engines through, there...

    The LEDs are Whelen. The several of the tiny bulbs burned out in the traffic stick (almost half in one light) and several turn signals, and the whole fixture failed in the driver's side bumper.

    Grumman Apparatus

    The plate above the air intake is a rectangle Grumman nameplate. Next time I'm back home I'll see about getting better pictures of the builder's plates. I have one from an old camera that is almost completely unreadable, and to be completely honest, I only took that one to get the year of...

    Post made. Haven't been able to log in lately due to a "cookie" message though... Not sure why, nothing changed in my settings. I still got the message even when I set the cookies to "accept all."

    Fire trucks are supposed to Red ! Right ?

    I don't have any currently, but I searched the net and found several studies about Slime being more visible under the most weather and lighting conditions. They all concluded that the emergency vehicle driver and vehicle recognition were more important than any single color or color combination.
