Default Got a new work truck

I picked up a new '13 F-350 SuperDuty 4x4, Crew Cab long box, 6.7L diesel for work. It will be kitted out as a rapid response vehicle for my site's emergency response team. It's a complete coincidence that it matches my hovercraft

The mods that will/have been completed are:

2500W power inverter
Dual alternators
Whelen Amber/White mini-light bar
Whelen 500 series amber and red flashers
8' bedslide with equipment racks
4x 4500psi supplied breathing air cylinders
300' high pressure remote breathing air system with pneumatic tool outlets for vehicle extrication.
Raider Vagabond bed cap with custom tool boxes





High Angle Rescue equipment


No better way to have scene lighting than a 2500W power inverter




It matches my hovercraft perfectly... complete coincidence.

Because the company I'm contracting to only runs Fords and this truck will stay on site at all times and must be able to be serviced by our site mechanic. The contract company also paid for a bunch of it for me, so I have to make them happy. I did try to get a Ram but it's been a major PITA to get HD Rams through the fleet sales right now and the Fords have a lot better support in the safety/rescue community.

His only reprieve from that Phord insanity is that he gets to drive his Ram on his off-hours.

What do you do?

Some type of Disaster Emergency Response on the water or the like?

Emergency Response coordinator for a remote oilsands facility. I have a 24-person response team that responds to everything from plane crashes at our aerodrome to vehicle incidents, environmental contamination, high angle/confined space, and hazardous materials. The only thing we don't do is bunker gear entries, that's the joy of our facilities out here, if they catch fire we just shut down the flow and it burns out pretty quick.

The hovercraft is for our river/lake responses as well as to aid local RCMP with s&r.

Wow, that sounds real cool.

However, me personally, give me a first-due two storey residential structure with heavy fire on the A-B corner on the second story with no occupants with me on the pipe, any day of the week.



Thanks for your service.

I have a few fire fighters on my team and all of them wish we actually did entries. I don't know what it is with you sparkies, but you love fire WAY too much some times :lol:
