Engine 11 1/2 - Riverview Fire Rescue

2650 ratings | 2247067 views
The brainchild of Deputy Fire Chief Milt Cawley, this unit was constructed in 2003, through a partnership with the New Brunswick Community College, a private insurance company and many suppliers, at no cost to the fire department. It is built on a gas powered golf cart chassis, and meant to replicate Engine 11 in the Department's fleet. It is used as a public education tool, and has been regularly featured in various events, and parades throughout the Maritime Provinces and even into Maine. The actual "operator" is in the rear portion behind smoked glass...giving the concept that the children in the front are driving. Children stand in line for over an hour, at community events to have their turn "driving the Engine." It also has a rollup door where a television can be installed for public education as well as a two way intercom system....where the truck can actually carry on a conversation with children. Deputy Chief Cawley's planning and personal initiative has made this tool an extremely effective public education tool. The video shows the Engine in action, at an open house at the Elgin (NB) Fire Department, October 2012.

How can buy That Firefox truck
Doug Hamer (1 year ago)
One of the moving moments in this little truck...was the parade for the Maine State Assoc of Firefighters Parade in Mexico, Maine...just a week after 9-11. There was talk about cancelling the convention but it went ahead, and a group of volunteer firefighters from Riverview Fire Rescue (Canada) travelled 6 hours to get the truck there for the Maine State parade. At that time, the truck was battery powered (converted shortly after to gasoline engine) . Engine 11 1/2 started to quit during the parade....and a bunch of folks came out of the crowd...and pushed it the remainder of the trip. It was a heatwarming experience for those vollies from Riverview Fire Rescue who brought the truck over to the event to show some support to their American colleagues during a tough time.

Doug Hamer do you have the material list used to make one?
Doug Hamer (1 year ago)
Absolutely...educate them young in fire prevention.
B trumpet (1 year ago)
Doug Hamer that is nice y'all built that for the kids
Doug Hamer (1 year ago)
It cost us NOTHING; the frame was a golf cart...and the sheet metal work was performed by the sheet metal department at a local community college..all the materials (paint, wiring, decals etc) werre donated and an insurance company was a big sponsor. No reason that any community could not have one. Children would wait sometimes 30-45 mins in lineup to get a brief drive in it. Very popular.

it's the kid
Doug Hamer (4 years ago)
NO...the "actual driver" is in the second door behind one way glass.  The kids cannot even see him behind  them...although he has a clear view through the one way glass.  There is a "fake" steering wheel for the kids to manipulate....it is an extremely popular buggy...been in service for over a decade now....and kids line up for over 30 mins to get a 2 min ride in it.
StackerMan (4 years ago)
That is amazing!! We so need one for my fathers station.
StackerMan (4 years ago)
Thanks! you've given us some great ideas!
Doug Hamer (4 years ago)
+StackerMan IT was built by the sheet metal class at the local Community College.  All the materials were donated, as well as a sizable cash donation from a local insurance company, which paid for materials which were not donated.  It is built on a golf cart chassis....origionally batter powered...but we found it would not last in a parade...plus the added weight of the batteries killed them.  So, batteries and electric motor were removed and replaced with gasoline engine.  Front tires are a bugger...only last for a few mos....but since I retired as Chief and my Deputy did as well (it was his brainchild) I understand they have worked with a local tire company to put a better grade of tire on and higher pressured.  Siren has two settings...low and LOUD....there is a baby monitor type PA system...so the truck can actually "carry on a conversation (2 way) with the kids.   Behind the rollup door, there is a shelf..where a TV can be placed..for public education videos etc.  It's been in service for over 10 years and a real kid pleaser !!!
StackerMan (4 years ago)
I hope we can, today was our annual open day and we were quite limited on things to do. this could entertain the children forever. Was this little truck build by the station crew or did you get someone to build it?
Doug Hamer (4 years ago)
Then go build it !!!  Get a golf cart chassis....local community college sheet metal class fabricated, local business donated materials and $$$....caution,...use a GAS POWERED golf cart as battery powered will not last well in parade environment.  also be prepared to beef up suspension, etc....a lot of fun and kids/parents line up for over an hour at events to get a ride in it.
Zach Novosad (4 years ago)
Where's the Q lol?
Lego Sardis fire Station 78 (4 years ago)
Where did you get that at
Doug Hamer (4 years ago)
It was planned by my Deputy Chief, Milt Cawley.  He had the concept, took it to a local Community College, arranged donations of $$$ and parts from businesses and the Community college sheet metal class and welding class built it.  The unit was built on a Golf Cart Chassis >(gasoline powered).  The "driver" sits in the rear portion and the children "drive it" in the front.  IT is a very popular unit and has been in use for about 10 years.  Doug Hamer, Retired Chief, Riverview Fire Rescue, Riverview, New Brunswick CANADA
