Engine 42 Education Response Vehicle (E.R.V.) is a hybrid 1960 International Fire Truck front end with a PG&E tool truck rear end.
It is used by the Crucible in Oakland as an education outreach vehicle to bring the Fire Arts to schools, festivals, and special events.
It also used to be my truck! I bought it in 2001 and turned it into an Art Car before donating it to the Crucible in 2003. Its gratifying to see what the talented folks there have done with it.
I had a lot of fun making this video too… despite the long hours and no sleep! enjoy!
