Squad 7 is a new unit of the SCFD.  It is a rescue-pumper that is attached with the special operations division.  This will respond on technical rescue incidents as well as hazmat incidents as a support unit to rescue companies and hazmat companies.  The purpose of the squad is to conduct search and rescue or RIT operations on a working fire.  This truck can function as an engine in its first-due area as well as a truck company in light rescue situations, such as car accidents.  These trucks carry car extrication equipment as well as light rescue equipment.
