The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Portage La Prairie Engine 1
When we visited Portage La Prairie in 2012, this Rosenbauer Freightliner M2-112 was newly placed in service. Engine 1 has a 1050 gpm pump and 2000 gallon water tank. Because it can serve as a water tender during shuttle operations, it also carries a portable water tank on a hydraulic rack on the left side of the truck, similar to the ladder rack located on the right side of the truck.
