LITTLE BIG GUYS

By John M. Malecky August, 2020


Unit 2716 of the Ocean Beach Fire Company in Toms River Township (Ocean County), is a dive unit. It was built by Rescue 1 on a 2009 Ford E-450 chassis. It was never an ambulance. Some of its inventory includes wet and dry suits for seven divers, ice rescue suits, board, rope, seven SCUBA tanks with rescue bottles, four spares, two skeds and FAST Team equipment.
