    Currently being brought into the fleet are brand new 2011 Chevrolet Caprice interceptors, these iwll replace parol cars 3 5 and 6, which will be renumbered and made into spare units.

    If you require a spare unit, please contact the District Commissioner's office to request keys,

    Not quite, all your trucks are within 4 years old which is young for a fire truck, so I have other spares being put together now.. Had to get the old numbers taken off them

    Ladder 1 is out for repair, therefore L1Spare will be brought to service for the time being

    The spare ladder was donated to us as a memorial for a former Ladder Lieutenant, thus the goldleaf and what not. It served two years, then it was deemed unfit for repitive active service, since it had several mechanical problems, it was then transferred to the Training Academy, as it could be used, just not on the repetitive needs that it would be as an active service truck. It was then retired to a spare after the training academy bought a new fleet of trucks. The L-1S still works, and does so in a great fashion, and seldom breaks down since it sees less than 1/10th of the action it did before

    You'd probably either go OOS, or just chuck your gear on another truck, or maybe a pick up truck, who knows.

    To be honest, because the SEV's are SUPPORT units we would not really need a spare unit. I think they would be more for frontline units rather than support units.

    If a SEV breaks down, which would be SUPER unlikely, since they are seldom used, and maintained very frequently, units will either respond to extra personnel calls in a designated POV, however if it's for the equipment, then the needed equipment will be transferred to a seperate unit and brought to scene, however if it's only a minor problem, such as windows don't work, a light is gone, siren function 3 doesn't work, etc, then we'll send the SEV anyways.

    If an RA, which sees much more action gets out of service due to a problem, they would be staffed on an extra regular ambulance while repairs take place.

    I have a suggestion I'd like to bring up, and considering it's relation to the patrol cars, I thought this might be the place to bring it up:

    Maybe TAC members could use the spare Crown Vic's for regular patrol duty when we are not working TAC duty? This would eliminate the need to issue POV's to all TAC members, and it would also give the poor spare units rotting away in storage a new purpose.
    I assume we could work out some way of coordinating the vehicles.

    Am I in the ballpark here?

    This is something potentially viable, I'll take a look at it, and set up a schedule of some sorts possibly

    I came to think of it with the new member additions to the TAC squad, it might be beneficient to have us working patrol duty when we are sitting idly on our asses. Smile
    We can reassemble at the HQ in the event that we are needed for the TAC role anyhow, just like we do now.

    A note on this; I think our TAC-cars already have TAC on them?

    Also; I'd like to have the spare units (if you decide to go with my suggestion) marked as regular police cars, and not add TAC.
    The reason for this is that we're not really fullfilling a TAC role when patrolling the streets, we are merely working as "regular" police officers and we don't need to emphasise on our special training/unit coherency when doing that. Smile

    Keep in mind, it might actually work against us, pointing us out as high value targets for the anti-ERT group, for example...

    (Not to bash your idea Matthews, just my two cents.)


    M. Cressler wrote:well you can go on patrol in your POV to I use to when I was a TAC SGT.

    I am aware, but using the spare units would:

    - eliminate the need to issue POV's to every single member of the TAC.
    - reduce the amount of non-uniformed vehicles at crime scenes.
    - allow the spare units to be actually used, and not go to waste.

    This should be continued in the Quarterly forum, however my idea on that, is, like most cities, TAC members are given patrol cars, yours are usually unmarked or very little marked. We only have one active unmarked patrol unit, so TAC then covers the rest. I'm gonna look into it, but I'm thinking it'll be Regular POVs for all, a marked TAC police unit for Commanding level officers, a regular marked patrol car for regular TAC officers and snipers and for scouts and negotiators, they'll be given unmarked, or barely marked patrol cars.
