In this FDIC International 2015 video, Joe Hedges, E-ONE aerial and chassis product manager, walks viewers through two brand new Hush Series pumpers.
The cab/chassis is a Pierce Dash CF PUC model with seating for a five. The apparatus is constructed of aluminum with full-depth compartments and roll-up doors.
The vehicle, which has front and back receiver hitches for a 9,000-pound Warn winch, also carries come-alongs, chains, Stokes basket, spine boards, cribbing, chain saws, Sawzall, grinders, cordless impact tools and the department's rope rescue equipment.
The fire occurred in an affluent community with limited access and no hydrants. There was a tanker/tender shuttle operation with multiple tanker/tender apparatus in service.
At FDIC International 2015, David Wunderlin, sales manager for Maintainer Custom Bodies, took some time to talk to Bill Peters about the company, its products, and its rigs on the floor at FDIC.
The apparatus has a Waterous CSU midship 1,500-gpm pump and a 500-gallon polypropylene tank. Monarch Electric intake valves are on each steamer outlet.
Here are some small things observed at FDIC International 2015 that could make your fire truck work better.
