A Tribute To American Firefighters
A True Labor of Love
It was tough to tell who was more proud - the Fire Department of New York (FDNY)
or Seagrave - when a special new fire truck with the latest technology was
dedicated and put into service by the FDNY last October 24, 2003 during a
ceremony at the FDNY Training Academy on Randall's Island in the Bronx.
Following months of fund-raising efforts, Seagrave Fire Apparatus handed over
the keys of an all-new Commander II rescue pumper that it and its employees both
built and paid for, to firefighters of FDNY Squad 61.
Seagrave and its employees raised the money to build the pumper from numerous
fund-raising events, bake sales, potluck dinners and supplier donations.
Together with the FDNY, Seagrave designed a new truck, adopting the latest
technology in fire apparatus construction to put together the new standard in
'big city' fire apparatus.
More Detail Than Ever Before

American firefighters. The beautifully recreated mural on the side of the truck,
with the words "Never Forget" inscribed on it, speaks of our deep respect to all
Four opening cab doors reveal a highly detailed interior. Inside each of the
opening compartments are the actual tools and equipment meticulously replicated.
Squad 61 features realistic LED lights, real lenses, windows that roll up and
down, a detailed bumper, and hoses that feel just like the real thing.
With over 520 individual parts (the most we have ever used in any model
to-date) for incredible detail, we hope to have captured the spirit of the
