Engine 7-15-1 (Retired)
Engine 7-15-1 is a 1988 Pierce Lance. This piece is setup as our primary structure engine. Engine 1 has a 1500 gpm, 2 stage, Waterous pump with a 1000 gallon water tank, 2 large diameter intakes and 2 large diameter discharges. This engine is also our primary Mutual Aid response piece. The hose lines carried include 2 - 1 3/4" x 200\' cross-lays, 1 - 1 1/2" x 200\' speed-lay, 1 - 2 1/2" x 200\' speed-lay, 1 -3" x 150\' preconnected leader line with a gated wye for High-rise applications and 2000\' x 5" large diameter hose (LDH) for water supply.
The crew cab is equipped with a David-Clark headset system. This system allows the crew in the back to communicate with the driver and officer, and hear radio traffic, while traveling to and from incidents. This is really helpful, since Engine 1 is an open cab engine.
A new addition to Engine 1 as of January 1, 2005, is a Thermal Imaging Camera (TIC). We recently purchased an MSA Evolution® 5000 Thermal Imager. This TIC will allow us to better determine if there was any extension from a fire in the wall, locate possible victims in a fire, and allow us to find the seat of the fire, to name a few.
