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.

Fire Engine Photos
Command and Control -- New Castle County, DE (USA)
I photographed this newly-delivered command and control unit during a 5-alarm fire in Delaware. It responds to all multi-alarm blazes and haz-mat incidents in the county of New Castle. Notice that the rig boasts a 2 metre extension that is deployed once it is positioned. This ECU is shared among 32 fire stations which serve a population of 525,587 in an area of 500 square miles.
