The LFC Blog Walk-around
Here we showcase some of the LFC's most recent built Lego fire apparatus.
For today's walk-around, we have the privilege of having a close-up view of Sven's replica of FDNY's TSU 1. This model contains many of the features the real rig has which includes a 4x4 chassis, a working crane, and the life boat.
About FDNY TSU 1: FDNY operates two Tactical Support Units (TSU). TSU 1 is housed at Special Operations Command while TSU 2 is housed with Engine 160, Rescue 5, and Division 8 on Staten Island. Both rigs are twins and are built on a 4x4 International 7500 chassis with Seagrave bodywork. An Auto Crane on the officer's side of the body helps lift the six-person Avon boat and heavy equipment from the top of the body. The apparatus also carries generators, special chainsaws for underwater use, powerful electric generators, portable pontoon boats, a telescoping light tower, and night-vision goggles.
