2014 Ferrara Igniter Pumper


This 2014 Ferrara Igniter pumper went into service with the Carrollton (TX) Fire Department in February, 2014, as Engine 112. The cab is an Igniter long cab model with an 8-inch raised roof and seating for a crew of 5. There are two cabinets in the rear area of the cab. The apparatus is constructed of heavy-duty extruded aluminum with full-height compartments and hinged doors. A hydraulic ladder rack is installed on the officer side.

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. The front bumper contains a jump line with a bumper hose tray. The deck gun discharge has a TFT Extend-A-Gun riser pipe. The foam system is a FoamPro 2002 with a 30-gallon integral foam cell.

The vehicle’s drivetrain includes a Cummins ISL9 450-hp engine and an Allison 3000 EVS transmission. The warning lights are Whelen LEDs, and Whelen also provided PFP1 12-V LED brow lights and scene lighting. Audio warning devices include a bumper-mounted Federal Q2B and a Federal electronic siren module with a 100-watt speaker mounted through the front bumper.
