Does anyone know what happened to AIR-1 and AIR-2? Did they ever go in service or are they still gathering dust at the shop because the union and the city still have come up with a staffing plan for them?

They are still at the Shops. I am planning a return trip in September and maybe they'll be in service by then.

Air 1 is not manned, but available for incidents. It responded to its first run on July 24, 2018 to the third alarm at 8740 Heritage Place north of Grand River. It is quartered with the Haz Mat unit at Russell and Wilkins. A hitch was added and it pulls the new Foam Trailer One (FT1). I do not know the status of Air 2.

Engine 35 has been reassigned a 2007 Pierce - DFD #528. Previously assigned to Engine 46.

DFD has three 2007 Pierce Enforcers still in front line service. The others are assigned to Engine 29 and 41.

Does anyone know what happened to a platform to replace Ladder 6? Weren't they supposed to order one. Also, weren't they getting more pumpers to finally take all the Pierce units off front line service?

A Spartan/Smeal platform is on order for Ladder 6, late spring to early summer delivery. I am not aware of any pumpers on order for the DFD at this time.

Ladder 8 was been reassigned a 2008 Pierce rearmount, DFD #555.

The 2001 Pierce tiller has been retired and was taken to a local auto auction.

Ladder 21 is also back in service most days now. They received a 2003 Pierce that was recently assigned as Reserve Ladder 3.

I guess that's the end of an era then. Wasn't Ladder 8 the last TDA on the DFD roster?
