Interesting to see the inner workings of the rig. Its certainly very well designed for its purpose, I can't imagine it has many miles/hours on it. Is this one of the units being spec'd out in the next big rescue-style body order from Seagrave?

As of right now only the 6 Rescue Style Rigs from Seagrave. 5 Rescues & Hazmat. There is a plan to get 2 or 3 new Decon Shower units to replace 37 and 283s

on responding with the rebreather unit does Ladder 20 get dispatched as well?
if not is the rebreather cross staffed by ladder 20 or do they staff it with extra personel at the station?
Rebreather is staffed by 2 Rebreather Trained Firefighters. Daily they go to Fort Totten to work on the Rebreathers

Is the unit at Ft Totten or at Ladder 20?
Rebreather 1 @ L20
Rebreather 2 @ Ft. Totten (Rarely Staffed if it even exists anymore)
Rebreather 1 staffed all year long at Ladder 20 with Rebreather Trained Officer & Firefighter.

Rebreather 2 is at Fort Totten can be staffed by the day tour. Rebreather Captain, LT and 2-3 Firefighters work here on the day shift. They have a Hammer Truck which is an old SSL, The Pickup with Cap and Rebreather 2. They work on the rebreathers daily. Rebreather 2 is always fully stocked ready to go. Hammer Truck and Pick Uo have extra supplies and extra rebreathers if need be.
