It looks like the third firefighter is still on all of the Aerials. Engine 60 & Engine 61 were originally only supposed to be staffed 12 hours (07:30 to 19:30), likely to cover rigs going to training. It's possible they are running 24 hours now because of COVID-19, perhaps CFD is using staff that might normally be in the office or training.

Ah, it is a lease? I wasn't sure. Yeah, if it's a stock truck, that would explain it. My agency got a stock tender from Pierce at one point because we needed it in a "hurry" compared to a normal truck build - our modification options were limited as a result.

Video of the houses on fire in Copperfield last week. The person that was filming did an excellent job of showing the fire and CFD operations.

Does anyone know how the Aquatics units are being staffed this year? is 6 Aquatics staffed full time May-September? 35 cross staffed by the tender and 30 by the Aerial crew?
I have seen 35 Aquatics and the Hazmat Recovery out driving around at the same time as well..

Does anyone know if 25 Aerial is still in service or has been relocated?
or the third option - too many Aerial's out of service, so 25 had to fill in as a spare.

A25s not using the Pierce Aerial, I don't know if they relocated, but I saw the Pierce last week running under A1. I haven't been to the station itself, so hard to say.

25 Aerial is running the 2008 - 105' Smeal Quint. Likely switched out to keep the spare Aerial's roughly around the same amount of Km's and service hours
