LFC Forestry Unit

The Legofield Fire Company just recently started a new forestry unit which consists of two pieces of apparatus, Forestry 1 and Forestry 3. These vehicles, due to the specialized use are not manned constantly, but are rather available on demand.

 

Forestry 1

Forestry 1 is a Fire-Fab four-man rear mount wildland interface pumper. Forestry joins Forestry 3 in the newly formed LFC Forestry Unit. Although it is designed to be used primarily for fighting wildland fires, it can be used as a reserve engine on large incidents.
