Seeing a theme here? Speaking of the Atlantic Emergency Solutions Facebook page, here's a drawing of Cary's new rescue that was recently posted. This 2013 Pierce Velocity heavy rescue is in production, and will replace Rescue 7, which is a 2008 Pierce Velocity heavy rescue. That truck will enter the reserve fleet. The Cary Fire Department has also ordered a Pierce Velocity pumper to replace Engine 4, and will feature a low hose bed. Go low or go home. Click to enlarge:

Love that CFD is going low hosebed on their new pumper!

Is the new Cary Engine on the Atlantic site yet? If so can we get a side by side, Mike?

I like the difference in Raleigh’s Trucks a lot better. The red sides look a lot better than the gray/silver on Cary’s.

Here is a link to the graphic drawing of the new E4, the hosebed will be slightly different with a small compartment on the driver’s side for an attic ladder, hook and backboard.

Nice drawing, looks good. I, for one, am a fan of the ladders on the side of the rig. If it works for CFD, roll on and hope it gives you guys a good 15 years.

I’ll throw my 2 cents in on ladders. I’m a fan of the ladders being inside the truck. People seem to have issues getting them off the side of the truck because of the height. Having them deploy down from the top seems to take too long when you need them right now. That extra few seconds seems like forever waiting for the rack to lower. With them coming out of the rear they are easy to deploy no matter the height of the FF. I’m about 5’10” and I can easily side the ladder out to its balance point and throw it on my shoulder. Plus whether on the side or on top you often have to remove a ladder to get to the one you want. Coming from the rear you can just grab the one you need.

Love the coffins on top, utilizing every inch of space for storage and equipment. Great change from the traditional design, and it gave space for another scene light on the side of the hose bed. Can never have too much light
