Awesome post Hamilton. Super interesting to see stations with Tankers (ex 4) that are now in solidly urban areas due to the quick development. 

What was the staffing like on the different units those days? Also were the cars chiefs or something else?

Cars are for Platoon Cheifs District Cheifs Safety officers and PIF also training and Transport if necessary 

Sorry PIO not PIF

Yes they are now. I was referring to the 7 cars in the 1990’s roster.

Back in the past, 3 car, as in today, where senior officers. A District Chief east & on the mountain and the Platoon Chief  (Assistant Deputy Chief in the past) in the west. All other cars did all most all of the medical calls with a few exceptions.  Pump 3 and Pump 10 did medical calls in their areas. Call volumes for medical calls where much lower than today.

Hamilton has a new urban engine design that will result in them being 20 inches shorter in length and 12 inches shorter in height. Two are on order from KME with one going to Engine 1 and the other likely Engine 11. Current Engine 1 will go to 6. 

There are also 2 Ladders, 5 volunteer Pumpers and 2 Tankers on order. Hearing the Pumps will go to 18, 19, 25, 26, 27 and the Tankers to 18 and 19. If anyone knows about the ladders that would be nice, although I’m assuming they’ll go to 4 and 20.

For the last 3-4 weeks, Ladder 1 and 9 have been out of service, as L1 is running L40 and L10 has moved to L9. Ladder 10 has been running a spare engine as Pump 10 as there is only 1 Spare Ladder.
