During my recent trip to Kansas, I visited the Mission Township Fire Department on the outskirts of Topeka. They have two new units from Rosenbauer America on the Commander chassis. Though they look like twins, one is a traditional engine and the other is a rescue pumper.
When the department purchased these two units, the adopted a new color scheme; red and blue.
This unit is filled to capacity with a huge compliment of tools.
The engine looks very similar except for the mid-ship, top-mounted pump console.
The front bumper of Rescue 40 has a set of hydraulic rescue tools.
I had a beautiful day for photography and the fire department personnel found this great open spot to setup the shots.
