I have been asked to show how the Playmobil City Fire Department Districts 1, & 2 Heavy Rescue Units HR127, & HR227 are equipped, & what types of rescue tools are included in their rescue tool arsenal. This is a photo documentary showing the answers to those questions. The tools carried by both of these rescue trucks include; a TJW industries rock drill with different bits, flashing caution lamps, a full range of TJW Industries small, medium, & large hydraulic lifting jacks, a full arsenal of TJW Industries heavy duty hydraulic powered rescue spreaders, cutters, & pullers, a complete set of WHB Rescue Equipment Systems USA extra small, small, medium, & large lifting air bags with a medium, & large leak sealing air bag kit, 2 large grey tool chests full of various hand tools, 1 complete set of color coded hydraulic hoses with splitter manifold, 1 set of color coded air supply hoses with air flow control boxes, & splitter hoses, 1 WHB Rescue Equipment System USA circular blade cutting saw, 1 chain saw, 1 large trailer drawer storing larger hand tools shovels etc. Both trucks are equipped with 1 front large 80,000 lb, hydraulic cable winch, 1 telescopic spot lamp system, 1 on board lap top computer, 1 on board diesel air supply compressor, 1 on board diesel PTO hydraulic pump, 1 on board diesel electrical supply generator, 2 on board hose reel systems, 1 for hydraulic supply, & 1 for air supply. The trailers that are always connected to the trucks have additional hose reels, & lighting systems. I hope you enjoy the updated photos of these rescue units in the PCFD fleet.

Hello Bill,

Thank you very much for sharing your pictures with us. Its allways interesting to see other fire services equipment load outs. I am glad that you have been able to find a vehicle suitably large enough to carry all of your new rescue equipment. I really do like your custom air bag's, air lines and controller's. I also noticed that you were able to make the manifold! If you were able to make that I think you can make anything by now Bill :wow:, it was quite a tricky little thing to make. Unfortunately some of my projects are going to be limited by what is available at DS or what has been discontinued. They also tend to improve the design of some of their parts making them less usefull for customising in the new form. As soon as I get a bit of free time I will be looking at developing some new tool's and exploring more concepts.
On a final note Bill, what sticker sheet did you use for the pump bay ? I am having a bit of trouble finding it on PlaymoDB, I think its one I haven't used before.

Tim :wave:

This is great Bill...

I really like how you have changed the color to white and the storage looks great.

It's a really good job, Bill.

That is a great bit of documentary work Bill, everything is so well thought through and organized! I never tire of seeing Tim W's tools and jacks and your air bags, they are all so well done! :wow: Thanks also for the explanation of the tools, that always helps put things in context.

Nice as always!!

I like that your troops always carry a realistic set of gear with them...
Batten down the hatches! Weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen!
