Default 2012 Ford F-150 Install

This is a Department owned vehicle that will be utilized by the Battalion Chiefs on a daily basis.

All lighting is Whelen with the exception of the taillight and headlight flasher. Whelen CenCom Sapphire siren/light control. Two Motorola APX 6500 (ones a dual head), BendixKing GMH VHF, Motorola APX 6000 charger, 300 watt inverter and Panasonic CF-19 computer.

Just began wireing as all equipment has been mounted.

I love those new style Knox-boxes. Plug in your code and you have the key. No more worrying about getting the code tones over the air.

4 microphones and a laptop in the driver's seat..... and they're worried about people on cell phones....

Hope the unit comes with an aide!

Its a blue strobe that flashers when the KNOX Box key is removed from the KNOX KeySecure (secures a key that opens a number of different types of products for FD access, etc.. It serves as a reminder that the key has not been replaced. To learn more about KNOX devices please vist KNOX-BOX Rapid Entry Systems.

Looks great but curious, why two 6500s when one 7500 would have possibly worked?

Both 6500 are 800mhz DTR. When we command scenes we have a dispatch channel, command channel and we monitor the talkgroup that our emergency button activations revert to when the emergency button is pushed on our radios (scanned by both radios to reduce the chance of missing the activation). Hence the reason we put two in. Our current BC ride only has one which requires us to use portables as well and we believe we will be better suited with this configuration but we will see….!

Would it be possible for a video of the emergency lights in action?

Sure will once they are wired. I have a Kussmaul Auto-Eject to install and once thats completed all equipment is mounted and wires will begin to be stretched. Some wireing has been done inside the console to facilitate organization of the install but that it.

We are switching to a truck as it will have additional airpacks (SCBA) and bottles on it. It to removes alot of loose equipment out of the passanger compartment and if your bunker gear is dirty it to is not within the passanger compartment.

Just an update. Install has been slow due to schedules. However the last few days all the lights on the cab of the truck have been completed and sirens completed. Console is 80% done, all radios are mounted and awaiting wireing! Hopefully two more full days at it will be done!
