F253, a 2002 E-One/Frieghtliner, is a 1000/1250 pumper serves as our crash/rescue truck. This multi-purpose vehicle carries many specialized tools for rescue and fire suppression and eliminates the need to bring an extra piece of apparatus to the scene of an MVA since it is a pumper. This unit is also 3rd due on all structure fires. On fire calls, the crash truck functions just like a normal fire truck. This unit is also used as back up for a 3rd EMS call. Many people are familiar with one particular piece of equipment that we carry on this truck: the "jaws of life". This is a hydraulic rescue tool used to extricate or "free" people trapped in auto accidents.
