At least 6 people were critically hurt (some reports are up to 10) after two apparatus collided with each other, struck pedestrians and then crashed into a building in Monterey Park (Calif) just a little while ago. Initial reports are that the Alhambra apparatus collided with a Monterey Park apparatus engine, sending the apparatus into a restaurant on the corner. 6 people were transported to L.A. County USC Medical Center in critical condition. Further injuries were expected to be reported. No details yet as far as Firefighter injuries.

Old vs New trucks.

April 14, 2014, 09:18:29 PM minimikeman

My company is weighing the options for rebuilding an old brush truck or going with a newer one.  Some of us would like to see and rebuild a old brush truck or mini pumper that has less gizmo's and gadgets, electronics and sensors and crap compared to the new stuff that doesn't seem to be all that well. The truck will be mainly used for brush fires and maybe water supply if needed.  Looking to have 200 to 300 gallon tank and 500gpm or less if its a old mini pumper.  If a brush truck we'll just use a small engines driven pump. looking to have 2 hose forestry reels and (1) 1/1/2 and (1) 2 1/2 discharge. Just looking for pro and cons.  Also can you still rebuild a old brush truck / mini pumper from the 85 ish or early 90s for safety regulations?
