Jefferson (NY) Fire Department rescue-pumper. Monarch cab and chassis; Cummins X12 500-hp engine; Hale Qmax 1,500-gpm pump; 1,000-gallon polypropylene water tank; 50-gallon foam cell.
The order is made up of six Pierce® Saber® pumpers, two Enforcer™ Ascendant® 110’ heavy-duty Aerial Platforms, one Enforcer 105’ heavy-duty aerial ladder, one Velocity® heavy-duty walk-in rescue, and one Ford® F-550 tactical support unit.
Two million dollars worth of new equipment includes a 104-foot platform aerial truck, two engines and a rescue truck, reports ABC 12. Fire officials say the trucks will benefit residents with better responses and firefighters by boosting morale in the department.
