L10 is showing up as P10 on the incidents. Is L9 out of service now? 
Ladder 1 = Ladder 41

Ladder 12 = Ladder 40

Ladder 9 = Ladder 10?

9, 10 or 4 could've just went out today. 9 and 10 for sure were in service until this morning. Could've been a breakdown that's not quickly repairable.

Here are some pictures of new apparatus for Hamilton Fire for 2019. Besides these, P 25, P 26 & P 27 are being replaced this year. E 1 & E 6 are also new for this year. Do not know where prese

C-Max (Hamilton's equipment outfitter) has four new KME pumpers for Hamilton on site. Unsure if they are the Urban Engines or Rural Pumpers or how many of each.

I saw Ladder 10 responding to a call as Ladder 4 today (Feb 26th) at Upper Gage and Mohawk area. Ladder 4 is at mechanical shop.

I believe they also have a new light on top of the tire on the front end. Was this on the older ambulances?

Looking at older photos it look like it was. The amber lights activate while the ambulance is in reverse I think,

This is only on the brand new ones. One of the is a white light that comes in the the turn signal is on and the other one is emergency lighting.  The more recent ambulances also have the right and left turn signal arrows on the front of the box just below the light bar.

Those looks new to go into service

Current/Future plans for Hamilton Fire

Rescue 1 is to be replaced with an Urban Pumper (Pump 1).

Rescue 1 is to become Rescue 18, replacing Support 18.

Engine 5 is to be replaced with a Ladder (Ladder 5).

The department is in the process of purchasing a drone for firefighting and search and rescue calls.

HFD has begun training firefighters from 2 full-time and 3 volunteer stations as water and ice rescue technicians and provide them with the necessary equipment for these rescues. This will create a tri-service response between the HFD, Police Service and Hamilton Beach Rescue.

The 2020 Budget calls for:

The purchase of 1 Rural Pumper (to be added onto the 2019 order), 2 Ladders, a Foam Tender, a Trail Rescue ATV with transport vehicle and 6 Support Vehicles, 4 of which will be the Platoon Chief, District Chiefs and Safety Officer vehicles.

The construction of Station 31 in Watertown. Once completed, Engine 24 and Ladder 24 will be moved there, with both being staffed full-time. Station 24 will become fully volunteer.

The creation of a Shift Training/Safety Officer position. One firefighter will be assigned per shift and will assist the existing safety officer with accountability. In addition, they will have a role in training.

A second crew to be established during the day (8 am - 4 pm, Monday to Friday) at Station 24. A similar day crew will be established at Station 17.

The 10 Year Fire Service Delivery Plan calls for:

In 2021, the daytime staffing of Pumpers 16 and 18 (8 am - 4 pm, Monday to Friday).

In 2021, the lease or purchase of the land that Station 14 is currently located on.

In 2021, the beginning of the process of relocating the Mechanical Division (Station 13) and Stores (Station 30) to Station 22 on Stone Church Road.

In 2023, the construction of a new Composite Station in Elfrida. This Station will be composite and the second apparatus from Station 17 and it’s day crew will be moved here, becoming a full-time crew.

In 2024, the full-time staffing of Pumper 16.

In 2026, the full-time staffing of Pumper 18

In 2027, an Urban Pumper and full-time crew at either Station 10 or 23.

On the wiki it says P1 is in service on june 28, but it is june 29th. Why is rescue 1 still going to calls?

I'm thinking that P1 has just recently went into service today and hasn't been changed on the cad yet. Last call for R1 is showing 11 hrs ago.

New L20 has now been in service for over a month.

Ladder 20 - (300997) 2020 KME Predator Severe Service LFD (1050/400/103' Aerial Cat rear-mount)

A6 is now running an ex Squad.

Air 6 - (300662) 2001 Ford F-550 / SVI (250/200/30F) (Ex-Squad 28)

Ex A6 (300628) 1996 KME Renegade MFD (GSO#2551) (Ex-Rescue 90, 25, 16, 2, 11, 1)

May be assigned to Support 23 or revert to Rescue 90.

The old A6 going to Support 23 would make sense given there are no urban rescues anymore. Provides more storage space for the technical rescue equipment that they used to carry than the current S23. That, along with the Engines carrying some rescue gear and A6 supplying air will be effective at replacing all of the duties the Rescues used to have.

Are new ambulances diesel? They sound much more truck-like than the old ones.

All of the new ambulances are gas powered. 2003 and 2092 are hybrid powered with recharging done through the braking system when the brakes are applied.

Ahhh ok, because 2031 left the station and really sounded like a truck or a diesel vehicle.

Next time I see 2031 at Juravinski when I'm working, I will let you know. Pretty sure they are all gas though. :)
