Because of the harsh weather conditions in Farmington, Minnesota, Farmington Fire Rescue added the cold climate package to its 1,000-gallon Pierce Impel PUC Pumper. The pump panel has an aluminum heat enclosure, electric gauge heater, pump and plumbing compartment heater, and rubber boots around the plumbing.  The rear of the apparatus features a lowered hosebed with hatch compartments along the sides in addition to storage for ladders, pike poles, 6” hard suction, and traffic cones.
