City of Lego Heights Fire Department Paramedic Engine 16
About this creation
The City of Lego Heights Fire Department received an early Christmas present when Ferrara delivered three new apparatus. One of these vehicles was Paramedic Engine 16, a 2012 Ferrara Igniter II XD with some bodywork done by Crimson Fire. Engine 16 bears a striking resemblance to CLHFD Engine 17, with only a few differences.
Since the City of Lego Heights currently does not provide EMS services, Paramedic Engine 16 was designed to be able to respond to any medical emergency in its district. In addition to the standard CLHFD engine company equipment carried on Engine 17, Engine 16 also carries basic life-saving and triage equipment. Engine 16's crew are all BLS/EMS Level 1 trained, and at least one Haz-Mat/EMS Level III/ALS certified fire-fighter is on duty at all times.
As with all CLHFD vehicles, Engine 16 follows very strict guidelines and requirements. The Department's "Mandatory Fire Apparatus Specifications" state that all vehicles must be outfitted with the following: an EMS cabinet in rear of cab, a high-rise equipment compartment on the roof of the cab, and a four-color water tank level indicator system. Engine 16's apparatus is also equipped with a 2000gpm pump, 1000g water tank, a 100g Class A foam cell, 500' of hoses, a pump-mounted trash line, 1 45' ground ladder, and 1 25' ground ladder. Since Engine 16's response area also includes the popular Foster Lake Reservoir, the vehicle also carries swift-water rescue equipment like long boards and life-rings. Engine 16 is stationed alongside Dive Operations Supervisor 1, at City of Lego Heights Station 16, located in the southwest area of the City.
