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.

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. 1552491969345Edited_Social_Media_002.thumb.jpg.443d93c7a47f3ba07f64f7091c74789b.jpgEdited_Social_Media_004.thumb.jpg.d96e7ba984605a44f27df996f0adb1b0.jpg

 Another question, yesterday last night, I heard a engine pass by. I thought it was a spare engine, as R90 has a siren that sounds like the siren I heard. Apparently, that was R12! R12 always had an EQ2B, on Twitter, it said: NEW | F19020085 | MEDICAL | Loc: 0 Block KING ST W SC @ WARDROPE AV/WALKER AV /CN: 38 KING WEST APTS | Units: R12 | 06/03/19 22:17. The siren I heard sounded like R90's siren. I have no idea what siren that is though. It kinda sounded like this video:

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 present E 1 is going. These would be the new shorter Engines for the inner city. All full time pumpers will be engines.  Two new Ladders are in. One is going to L 4 and other to ???.  Tower 19 will be replaced with a 30 m (105 ft) ladder. Apparently they are all in. 

Next year P 16, P 21 & P 26 will be replaced. 

All pictures are from HFD Twitter.

The new Pumpers for the inner city are designated Pump 1 and Pump 6. Pump 1 is replacing Rescue 1, Engine 1 is staying there. 

Here are some more changes happening this year:

  • In the coming months, Rescue 1 is to be replaced with an Urban Pumper (Pump 1). Rescue 4 is to be replaced with an Engine (Engine 4). Rescue 12 is to be replaced with a Ladder (Ladder 12). All 3 current Rescue's will be redeployed to volunteer stations, exact assignments unknown. 
  • Once Ladder 12 is in service, Ladder 15 will move to Ladder 19 and be replaced with Pump 15. 
  • Engine 5 is to be replaced with a Ladder (Ladder 5) in 2019.

 

Here is a rundown of more changes over the next 8 or so years:

  • A 2nd Safety Officer position will be created in 2020. 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. 
  • In 2020, A second crew will be established during the day (8 am - 4 pm, Monday to Friday) at Station 24, to staff Ladder 24. A similar day crew will be established at Station 17.
  • The construction of Station 31 in Watertown is set to begin in 2020. Once completed, it will house an Engine and Ladder, both staffed full-time. Existing Station 24 will become fully volunteer.
  • In 2020, the HFD will purchase a large-capacity Foam Unit, as well as a small, off-road ATV with a pump and stretcher, in order to support rescue and firefighting operations on trails. They will also investigate the purchase of a drone.
  • In 2021, the HFD will begin daytime staffing at Stations 16 and 18 (8 am - 4 pm, Monday to Friday).
  • In 2021, the HFD will either purchase the land that Station 14 is currently located on, or an adjacent property to build a new station. They will also begin the process of relocating the Mechanical Division and Stores to Station 22 on Stone Church Road. 
  • In 2023, construction of a new Composite Station in Elfrida will begin. Once completed, the daytime crew at Station 17 will be moved to this station and operate full-time. 
  • In 2024, full-time staffing will begin at Station 16. In 2026, Station 18 will have full-time staffing.
  • In 2027, an Urban Pumper and crew will be added to either Station 10 or 23.

 

All from Hamilton Fire Wiki/10 Year Master Plan.

So guys I just figured out about that post, I think R12 is out of service. I had not seen it for so long, and I just saw R90 pass by again. When I check the twitter its ''R12'' responding to a structure fire.
