Also, is anyone else seeing the new Ford Explorer as cop cars? They are pretty scary looking when behind you. My county is full of them. They also go the Chevy Caprice as the new sedan.
The California Highway Patrol selected the explorer as their next patrol vehicle. Motortrend did a feature on their testing process for the new patrol car. We have one explorer and Taurus as test vehicle. The county I live in is testing the Taurus and caprice. The tahoes are also a popular vehicle among k9 handlers.

For instance, I know there are engines and ladders. I'm sure there are other kinds too.

Pics would be awesome.
We use several different vehicles beyond engine and trucks.

Field Units (F-350s & 450s with Fire Cracker skid unit)


2k gallon Tankers (called a water tender in the West):


Heavy Rescue (this one is on it's last leg - new, MUCH larger unit currently being built)


Technical Rescue:


Air/Light/Power:


Utility trucks:


We also use a converted ambulance for Swift Water/Dive Team as well as a couple boats set up for dive/rescue work and converted Crown Vics for EMS response vehicles.

The fire service will use just about anything they can get their hands on most of the time if it can serve a useful purpose.

According to our FDs face book page this the entire "Fleet". There are more vehicles than fire fighters but that is ok because not all the vehicles start anyway.

Goodness, my department has dozens of different vehicles. From multiple engines types, ladder truck types, bambulances, chiefs & safety officer buggies, the bombers EOD vehicle (bomb disposal), boats, inflatable boats, foam trucks, water tankers, airport Crash Rescue, Heavy Rescues, Light plants, and I know I'm forgetting some probably.

Don't forget Quints (which are both ladder and engine trucks, not a fan) and tiller trucks (which are the most fun vehicles in the history of mankind).

If you want to see pics, go to www.cfdhistory.com or even http://www.cfdhistory.com/htmls/101.php?name=700

EDIT. I forgot a fleet of gators and the mass casualty 18 wheelers.

Highway patrol and state police have gone to the Charger and Tahoe now. I still see the old u boat on the interstate all the time, but they're starting to fade away now.

I've seen the Taurus and Explorer in cities and small towns, never on the interstate. SP and HP agencies more than likely have a need for a more beefier, and faster vehicle... that's my guess.

DOT still uses the Crown Victoria and the F-250s and Ram 2500s.
