386 Squad 1 / 386
Rehab is an Orion Bus – Prime transport vehicle for the WPMHG. The unit is climate controlled having seating for 20+ and carries all of the ceremonial equipment for the
Honor Guard and Pipes and Drums. The Bus also doubles as an emergency unit having Mobile Command and Rehab capabilities. There are three separate work stations on board and a radio desk having communication
hookups on the UHF, Low Band, CB and weather networks. Squad 1 is also equipped
with a small restroom facility to make it truly self contained. Rehab equipment,
besides the bus itself, includes two 10x10 tents, portable chairs, and rehydration supplies.
The new “Funeral
1” is in-service and ready for use. The gold-leaf has been added, she’s
and the hose bed has been customly retrofitted with rollers, carpet and other
special equipment to accommodate the carrying of a casket. We encourage our
region’s fire departments to
use the truck as a means to lay our brother and sister firefighters to rest
with the dignity and respect they deserve.
We thank the kind citizens, Borough Council, Mayor, and Borough Manager of the
Borough of Tarentum for the donation of the Seagrave to our cause. Special thanks
goes to our friends at Summit
Hose Co., Tarentum, for making this project possible! If you are interested in using the
Engine, please contact
Commander, M.J. Kauer at firstname.lastname@example.org
