This vehicle was originally a 1982 Saulsbury heavy rescue, with a 19 foot body, built on a 1982 American La France cab and chassis. It entered FDNY service in December 1982 and was assigned as the regular apparatus of Rescue Company 2 in January 1983. Following accident damage, the Saulsbury body, which was undamaged, was removed from the American La France and mounted on a new 1991 Mack model MC688C cab and chassis, which entered FDNY service on March 3, 1992. It originally was used as a spare rescue, but was assigned to Rescue Company 2 in February of 1995, replacing a 1990 Mack/Saulsbury. It remained at Rescue 2 until replaced by a HME/Saulsbury rescue on May 29, 1997. The truck was then assigned to Haz-Mat Operations, where it served as a spare vehicle for Haz-Mat Company 1, plus being used for other special assignments and events. In 2004, it was retrofitted by FDNY Fleet Services (The Shops) into a collapse rescue vehicle and now serves as Collapse Rescue 5, quartered with Engine 160 and Rescue 5 in Staten Island. Originally assigned FDNY registration number AR (for American LaFrance rescue) 8201 in 1982, it became MR (for Mack rescue) 9101 in 1991 and still carries that designation. It is currently one of the very oldest rigs in the FDNY fleet of over 2000 vehicles.
