Rescue Platforms play a vital role in the department as they are the only aerial devices with a platform or bucket. These apparatus are useful in situations requiring an elevated platform for rescue operations or master stream operations. Since both rescue platforms are not responding as first-due truck companies, they do not carry the standard complement of truck company tools; rather, they carry specialized equipment, such as collapse, high angle, or low angle rescue equipment. The department selected the 95' Aerialscope after having a trial run with a Rosenbauer T-Rex assigned to RP1 and an Aerialscope assigned to RP2 for two years. Despite the articulating jib, the Rosenbauer was ultimately not selected for department use as it required additional time to setup. Ultimately, the Aerialscope was selected due to its unmatched stability. The boom can extend 9 degrees below grade to 75 degrees above grade. It is also capable of a 1000 lb tip load while flowing 1000 gpm, unrestricted. When retracted, the boom can lift up to 5000 lbs. The plan for these rigs is to acquire one brand new Seagrave Marauder II with a 95’ Aerialscope and refurbish the Pierce Quantum Aerialscope. As the current Aerialscope device is nearing 30 yrs of service, a new boom will be placed on the current chassis.
