Station 5 protects the east side of Lafayette including the busy IN-26 commercial corridor east to I-65. It is home to Quint 5,
Rescue 5 and the LFD's Tactical Rescue Trailer. This picture was taken on Memorial Day weekend and the white crosses in
the grass are inscribed with the names of each Indiana Firefighter lost in the line of duty. A permanent memorial to fallen and
retired firefighters from LFD stands in the background.

Quint 5 is a one-of-a-kind at LFD. Due to a manufacturer's clerical error, this rig was painted white instead of red. Instead of
paying extra to have it repainted, it was delivered in May of 2007 in it's unique color scheme. This rig was also partially funded
by the Township which contracts out fire service within portions of the 5's district.

Lafayette Fire Department Station 6 - "The Rock" - Northeast Side
Located at US-52 and 25 North, Station 6 covers the northside of Lafayette including the most rural areas of the City.
Completed in 2001, Station 6 is home to Engine 6 and Tanker 6.
 
Engine 6 - 1997 International/Pierce Pumper - 1250gpm Hale pump/1000gal
Engine 6 - 1997 International/Pierce Pumper - 1250gpm Hale pump/1000gal
Engine 6 is the first due apparatus for medical calls and accidents. It is the only Engine in the department with a 1000gallon tank.
When a structure fire occurs, the Engine crew transfer to Tanker 6 which includes nearly all of the same equipment, but carries
additional water required in their mixed rural/city district.
 
Tanker 6 - 2001 E-One Cyclone II Pumper/Tanker - 1250gpm/2500gal
Tanker 6 - 2002 E-One Cyclone II Pumper/Tanker - 1250gpm/2500gal
Tanker 6 is the only Tanker at Lafayette. Since half of Station 6's district includes areas without city fire hydrants,
this apparatus is first due to all structure fires. Tanker 6 is also sometimes requested for mutual aid by the
Volunteer Township Fire Departments to the north and east.

Headed around back - Both of Lafayette's newest stations (6 and 9) were designed with drive-though bays,
which makes parking this big rig a lot easier.
