The LFC Blog Walk-around
Here we showcase some of the LFC's most recent built Lego fire apparatus.
This time we are going off road with Jeff Braun Jr.'s Brush 1.
About York Brick Fire Protection District: York Brick FPD is a fire protection district located in Larren County, and covers approx. 6 sq. Miles with over 14,000 residents and has 2 stations with 45 Paid on Call FF/ EMT’s. Station 1 (south end) houses an engine, a tower ladder, brush unit, an ambulance, and deputy chief’s vehicle. Station 2 houses an engine, a rescue squad, an ambulance, reserve engine, and a dive rescue vehicle.
About Brush 1: The newest addition to our fleet is Brush 1, a 2005 Stewart and Stevenson LMTV with a 300 Gallon water tank and 250 GPM pump, along with scene lighting/ spotlights, and numerous hand tools. Included is a Task Force Tip Monitor on the body, and a booster reel on the front bumper. Brush 1 can also be used for water rescue/ flooding incidents, due to its lifted profile, overhead exhaust, and large cargo bed. This Vehicle was donated to the department by the Lego National Guard Post here in York Brick.
Builders note: Special thanks to Oscar Flynn who created the original design, and to Mike and Martijn of the LFC blog for including our new brush unit on the blog.
