Hazmat 8 - 1998 Ford E-450/MedTec Custom Command Truck
This rig formerly served as FWFD's Arson Investigation Truck and was affectionately called the "Arsonlance" since it looks
so much like a typical ambulance. However, this truck is custom configured inside with a command desk in the front half of
the box. The back of the rig includes additional hazmat equipment and 16 spare air bottles. The trailer hauls a wide variety
of Hazardous Materials equipment and supplies similar to that carried by Allen County Hazmat 1 at Station 1.
