For the first Fleet profile of 2020 (yea, yea, I know... we're almost halfway through 2020, but better late than never, I guess..), we are privileged to have our good friend Tim J showcase his primary department, Washington Heights Fire-Rescue-EMS!

The great Steven Asbury is back at it again with one of the most unique set of rigs out there! This is his Lego fire department Task Force 3. It includes (left to right) Truck 3, Medic 3, Engine 3, Squad 3, Battalion Chief 1, Heavy Rescue 3, and Urban Search & Rescue 3.
It's been a while, but I think it's well worth the wait! Today, we have the privilege of showcasing some really unique Dutch rigs built by Maurice! Basing his trucks from his local region (Zuid-Holland-Zuid) as well as the "Dirk" fire station (the oldest active station in the Netherlands), Maurice has been building for a while, though only recently has he made them public. Some of the criteria that Maurice strictly follows is that the rigs have to be minifig scale, fit said minifigs, and have functions.
Enjoy the fleet profile below!
In today's edition of the Fleet profile, we are blessed to showcase Jeff B's orange rigs! Enjoy the photos below!

About Ft. Braun Fire Rescue: Special thanks to Lucas for providing the information on Fort Braun Fire Rescue!
Living in Florida, I'm no stranger to E-ONE Firetrucks. The city of Fort Braun, inspired by the many cities of Broward and Miami-Dade County, features exactly what you'd expect, lots of E-ONE. Drawing inspiration from across the state, I've gradually worked towards the "perfect Florida fleet." Taking lots of inspiration from my home Department, St. Lucie County Fire District, i began my fleet in the summer of 2018, and now draw ideas from all over FL. from Ocala to Miami-Dade, from Key Largo to Hernando County, my fleet aspires to be what Florida truly showcases in their day-to-day heroes in the fire service. Currently 265 Square miles, FBFD has 23 Fire stations, and proudly provides to the 100,000+ citizens of Fort Braun, with an ISO rating of Class 1. The trucks showcased here i've deemed "complete" (for now,) all we need now is a Work-In-Progress showcase, I'd have too many things to show!
The purpose of this section is to showcase unique and outstanding fleets. Having said that, for the inaugural Fleet Profile Post, we have Niels from across the Pond, whose front mounted engine and tanker has gotten our attention! These rigs were chosen as front-mounted pumps are quite rare in the community, so it is nice to see Niels take on this challenge!
