Del Mar College’s Regional Fire Academy Cadets got a look at their new $268,000 custom-built fire truck during a demonstration.
The new fire apparatus includes a two-stage Hale 1,500-gallon-per-minute fire pump and a 500 gallon water tank. Faculty demonstrated different variations of pumping water. Students also learned to use self-containing breathing apparatuses and safety measures when setting up and climbing up and down ladders.
Twenty-two students are currently enrolled in Del Mar’s Fire Academy. They are the first class who will use the new custom-built fire truck.
