CFD - Calgary Fire Department

Recommended Posts

Decided this should be a seperate topic from the "Calgary Emergency Services" thread.

Spotted this big Sterling Pumper Rig awhile back but was unable to catch any images of it until this last weekend when she showed up at an incident in the parking lot of at Spruce Meadows this past Sunday.

Also, earlier this past Sunday, I stumbled on an emergency scene at the Mayfair Place Apartment complex. Apparently a new transformer had been installed for this building and when they turned it on, it blew up while frying many of people's appliances and such in their apartments. Everyone was evacuated and as of yesterdays newspaper, they were still not allowed back in. Here are some images of the equipment I found at the scene:

Here is a picture of one of CFD's E-One Ariel Platform units, A04-06. Photo was taken on the approach to Brentwood Station back in June.

Do you know how many of those E-One Typoon II Bronto Skylifts that CFD has?

Does anyone know if any of the new 105' Smeal Aerials are in service yet??
I am not sure if they are or not. Do you know the fleet numbers on them by chance?

Finally caught one of the new Heavy Rescue rigs just outside my home about 20 minutes ago! R08-11 from Station #9.

I could be wrong but if these are quints Im pretty sure at least one of them is in service at Station 21. Caught a glimpse of it this morning as it went by. Main reason I think its one of the new trucks, it had the white and gold reflective stripes along the sides and the chevron covered directional sign on the back of the aerial deck. The old pierce 21, just had the white stripes and no chevrons on the ladder base.

Yup,the old Pierce quint appeared on global news tonight running out of 12.So guess 21 has one of the new trucks

BCT-3122-D800-10240 would you happen to know if that truck is still infact running as Engine #11?? CFD seems to take some time in re-numbering there apparatus :lol:

And on a side note CFD is supposed to be ordering new District Chief vans very shortly, I do believe they are ordering ones similar to there current Haz-Tech & Investigation Dodge Cargo Vans.

CFD is also getting a new Mobile Command Post I think from SVI? that should take roughly 5-7 months to deliver i would think

Sorry, I do not know. I am not that up on station locations and numbers. If Station #11 is near Deerfoot Meadows, then I guess it still may be based there.

Actually, today I spotted E52-08 at the scene of an accident on MacLeod Trail at 57th Ave. and it is still decalled as Station #11 which is just up the hill on 4th St. from MacLeod Trail, so I would assume it is still based there.
