    • And for the neighboor dispatch "EOC Broward County Regional Communications Division" the Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue ambulance is added.
      A Freightliner Horton 623 Ambulance, delivered in december 2012.


      And the first BSO Fire Rescue truck is ready.
      Chassis: International 4300 with a TaylorMade Medical Fire Rescue Patient Module. Manufactured in 2004.
      Typical are the square flashlights mounted on the patient module.
      These ambulances are still running, most are replaced already or on Reserve in the stations.

      Airport Terminal Cart 1 is dispatched a lot on the airport of Miami.
      Because in gameplay will be dispatched outside the airport area, it is not added into the game.
      You can actually create it in the game as FR or NEF, which ever then turn off the AAO (Unit Recommend) so it can only be manually selected for Airport Calls. I'm assuming it's part of the Fire Department at the Airport. I actually had to do this for 3 Fire Department vehicles that are in our response plan, but only respond to calls in their fire district so I turn off the AAO so that they wouldn't be selected for calls outside their area by accident.
