The pictures of the new apparatus are up. I will make videos of the apparatus on our Youtube Channel and get that out of the way for now.
Hi there! Chief Jones here with an update on the apparatus!
Our Snorkel 34 has retired and we now have in place Ladder 34, Engine 34 got a new ladder and lightbar. Medic 136 has some changes and is now Squad 34. All the changes will be on the apparatus page by the end of the week to clear up any confusion.
Chief 34, Deputy 34, and Utility 34 have all retired. But on the bright side, Medic 136 is Now in service. The Medic is a Ford F-series Chassis with a box style rear. For more information, visit the Apparatus page.
Also, Snorkel 34 is being constructed. Snorkel 34 will most likely be a 2010 Pierce with a 60 ft (when extended) boom arm and bucket with prepiped waterway.
It’s Chief Nick with great news! We are finally on Youtube!

I am going to put videos of the models so you can see they are not edited and that they are my own models! I may also once in a while post a stop-motion video of a call or two.
Congrats to J. Rastetter for becoming Battallion Chief, Treasurer, and Department Representative! Welcome to West Brickston Fire Department! We hope you enjoy your time of service here and stay safe Chief!

West Brickston FD is sad to announce the retirement of our old Engine 34. It was a nice 2002 E-One Typhoon Rescue Pumper. Engine 34 has been replaced with a 2010 Seagrave PUC Pumper. The new Engine 34 was immediately placed in service as Current Apparatus. To see the full outline of Engine 34, please see our Apparatus page.
I have heard some questions regarding if I make appearences at Fire Prevention Expositions. The answer is yes to a certain extent. I mainly try to stay in the Eastern Pennsylvania area. I go as far South as Northern Virginia, as far East as Harrisburg, and as far North as New York City. During the months of September through the middle of June, I am only available in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I am available between 4pm and 10pm for school. I am not available during the middle of August from Mondays through Saturdays. During the end of June to the Beginning of August, I am available all the time. For contact,
firstname.lastname@example.org is my email address.
If you would like me to build models to bring of your apparatus, I do have a small charge because I have my own models right now and it costs a good amount because I would have to buy the parts online to make the models.
