  1. Looks good! New scripts are nice but this looks amazing enough already. What more still has to be done?
  2. 10/10 nice work. Also not asking for a release date but do you have a list of things that are done vs things that you are still working on?
  3. What you have looks fine, you can also check the NFPA guidelines which will give you a good idea of what each type of truck is supposed to carry (in an ideal world) https://www.cattco.org/files/nfpa_1901_2009_engine_equipment_list.pdf
  4. Looks good! Glad to see people still working in this game/mod community.
  5. https://www.moddb.com/mods/mayberry-mod-2014/addons/corona-update Here's the fix for the white squares.
  6. That is going to vary based on where you're talking about, can you be more specific? Helitack is seldom used in my current area as the fires are small enough and easily accessible, that changes from area to area. Also there's lots of different types, some actually land while others rappel into the area. Crew size and collateral duties vary greatly as well. Airborne Paramedics in the USA operate mostly on medical helicopters but sometimes on fixed wing planes as well. In helicopters the crews almost always consist of a "flight medic" which is equivalent to a paramedic and a "flight nurse" which is equivalent to an RN. Both receive standard training as well as more training in critical care and in operations inside a helicopter. The crew will also include a pilot of course. That's about all I can speak on without specifics, hope it helps.
  7. So when I was involved in firefighting in Missouri I worked with management to get equipment. Basically the federal government distributes equipment (trucks, gear, random junk, etc) to state forestry departments. The state forestry departments then use some of the equipment themselves (used to be more back in the 80s and 90s) and distribute the rest to needy fire departments around the state. They distribute the stuff they kept too once they get better gear. I'd suspect that's how it works in most states. As for who has suppression responsibility that varies. I've found a link with info about Montana's jurisdiction here. Basically as I understand it DNRC responds to wildland fires on their own land and on land they are contracted to protect (USFS, NPS, BLM, BIA, basically federal areas not big enough to have their own response) and will assist local departments when requested as a mutual aid sort of deal. I would think they are NOT a umbrella, at least not functionally. They often respond when a local VFD can't put out a fire (it gets too big for initial attack units and is going to be a multi-day fire) and then they'll take over management of the fire along with the local authorities. Additional information about fire protection in Montana can be found here. They also provide aerial support for wildfires in the form of 5 helicopter based around the state. Apparently they also have a prison crew (Type 2 hand crew) that responds statewide when requested in partnership with department of corrections and the state police, info here.
  8. Found two links, one just stated what you found already and one is a forum post on a FF Forum which (although isn't an "official" source) states that Montana does not allow sirens on POVs. Montana Emergency Vehicle Statute Firehouse Forum on POV lights by state
  9. In my hometown rural (MO) area loose livestock events were like Rlizard described, someone (cop or a bored volunteer firefighter if they were nearby) would herd it out of the road and then call the owner to retrieve it. Dead deer were hauled off the road by the highway department or cops, we didn't have a homeless shelter in our area and most of the meat would be pretty bad by the time it would get to anyone who needed it, usually if someone hit a deer and wanted the meat they'd arrange to take it themselves. Our biggest concern so far has been a horse trailer/cattle hauler wreck which we haven't dealt with yet but has happened nearby. In those situations the cops will dispatch the animal if its too injured AND is making it impossible to access a human patient but in other situations we generally have vets come out and assess and if needed put down or knock out the animals. In rural areas we make a lot of it up as we go... As for poaching cases there I have a bit more experience. Depending on the "level" of forensics required the animal might be left where it was found and examined there or it can be taken back to a station for further analysis or in cases of significant interest (high value animals, serial poachers, etc) where a strong legal cases was needed the bodies would be sent to the US. Fish and Wildlife Service Forensic Lab but this would still be done from a station of some kind. So realistically you might have a poached wolf or something loaded up into a pickup truck and taken back to the warden/park police office. On that note has anyone looked into a good "pickup truck" script? If it was done similar to the flatbed truck delivery missions in the U.S. Army mod it might open up a lot of new potential variations on different calls, the pickup truck is truly the most widely used vehicle in rural emergency services...
  10. Its entirely possible they just don't have lights on it. It might not be a first out unit but it looks like its still rigged for wildland fires. Toss it in game without a lightbar if you want to be 100% faithful or tiddy it up to look cool, its your mod bro.
  11. Looks good! The second ones looks just retro enough
  12. One of my neighboring VFDs had something similar. It was just an SUV that they slapped some markings an a lightbar on it and they used it to haul people to training, to fire scenes and bring SCBAs and other stuff. I think a utility vehicle might fit in well. Might make sense to make it a trailer and just have it able to be pulled by POVs or the brush truck though if its a really small department. Another real world example I know of is that Shenandoah National Park used to have "mass casualty drums" which were 55 gallon drums (fuel cylinders) that were filled with equipment for mass casualty events (cots, tags, etc) staged around the park and in the event of a bus crash or something like that they'd send someone in a pickup truck to get the closest one.
  13. Ideas for rural area Person stuck underground: Collapsed well, cave, mine, etc. Person stuck above ground: hanging off crane or powerpole. Trench collapse Person pinned by vehicle (like TheBus) said. Tractor accident/MVA
