Nomenclature

  • E = Engine. An engine company is the basic fire suppression unit. Engines are capable of pumping water and carry a complement of hose. Most of the recently purchased apparatus have pumps that are capable of pumping water at approximately 1000 gallons per minute. Some engines are also outfitted to flow foam and other special extinguishing agents.

  • RE = Rescue Engine. The same capabilities as an engine company but also carries hydraulic rescue equipment for simple vehicle extrications.

  • L = Ladder. Ladders are commonly known to lay people as "hook and ladders" or to firefighters as "trucks." A truck company's main distinguishing feature is its mounted aerial ladder; These ladders range from 85 to 110 feet in length. Truck companies also carry a large complement of ground ladders, forcible entry equipment, fans for ventilation, and salvage equipment.

  • L = Tower Ladder. Same as a Ladder, except has a platform on the end of the ladder.

  • RSQ = Rescue Squad. Rescue Squads are essentially large tool boxes, which carry many specialized tools for rescue and fire suppression. Many people are familiar with one piece of equipment carried on rescue squads: the Hurst Tool. This is a hydraulic rescue tool used to free people trapped in auto accidents. In addition to the rescue equipment, rescue squads also carry much of the same fire suppression and forcible entry tools that a truck company does. On fire calls, the rescue squads function much like a truck company without an aerial ladder.

  • M = Medic. Medic units, while they can function as ambulances, are also capable of providing advanced life support (IV and drugs) to critically ill/injured persons. Medic units carry electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring equipment, drugs, advanced airway care equipment and other items for the critical patient. Medic units are normally dispatched on heart attacks, trouble breathing, allergic reactions, auto accidents with critical injuries (trauma), and other such calls.

  • B = Brush Truck. Brush trucks are four wheel drive vehicles, which are usually in the pick-up truck size. The vehicles have small pumps and special equipment for "brush" or woods fires. The only common urban use for these vehicles is fighting fires in underground parking garages where their low clearance is of use.

  • AU = Air Unit. Air units are designed to refill large numbers of self contained breathing apparatus cylinders on large scale incidents. Air units can be outfitted on vehicles of varying sizes. Some air units are comprised on many large storage cylinders that are "off-loaded" into the smaller bottles used by firefighters. Other systems actually have compressors built on the air unit.

  • HM = Hazardous Materials Unit. "Hazmat" unit is the short name for a hazardous materials team. Hazmat teams are specially trained and equipped to deal with chemical spills and leaks. Sometimes these chemicals are hazardous, while other times they only cause environmental hazards and need to be cleaned up.

  • U = Utility. Utilities are support vehicles such as pick-up trucks, maintenance vehicles and other support units. Utilities are sometimes used in a first-responder role.

  • BC = Battalion Chief. Runs box alarm assignments and selected still alarm assignments as a incident commander.
