These vehicles carry a large supply of 1-hour SCBA cylinders, extra hand lights, extra radios, chargers, pressure sensitive tape, and a large assortment of firefighting and specialized tools to logistically support high rise fire operations. High Rise Unit 1 is quartered with Engine 3 while High Rise Unit 2 was originally outfitted at Engine 22. It has been moved to and is now operational from Engine 39, staffed by Engine 39. John M.
