E.J. Metals Inc. has introduced the newest, largest model in its line of high-pressure-foam-equipped Fire-Rescue Rough Terrain Vehicles (FRRTV) – the Assault Force 70.4.
The company said its latest FRRTV provides the high-pressure firefighting capability of the original Assault Force 70, with safe, secure patient transport and seating for four.
“This next generation Assault Force 70.4 is ideally suited for brush/wildland fire response and also perfect for fire/rescue and EMS response situations in pedestrian zones, stadiums and sports complexes, school and college campuses, large-scale events, industrial plants and parking garages,” said E.J. Metals President Kevin Quinn.
The Assault Force 70.4 is equipped with a rear-access Stokes basket compartment. The design provides excellent patient access for the EMT/paramedic during transport. The optional cab enclosure and rear-area enclosure allow the vehicle to be heated or cooled for climate-controlled patient transport.
The Assault Force 70.4 FRRTV features a 70-gallon water tank, a 5-gallon Class A foam cell, a high-pressure fire pump and the patented EJM TRIPLEX triple-discharge, high-pressure nozzle that allows firefighters to attack brush/wildland and other fires with a variety of water/foam streams.
The hydraulically driven, high-pressure system provides 6 gpm of water/foam discharge at 1,500 psi, delivering approximately 12 minutes of discharge time.
The Assault Force 70.4 is built on a four-wheel-drive Kubota RTV1140CPX model, designed for heavy-duty, non-recreational use. It has been tilt-table tested to verify its stability and offers a 24-degree side-slope capability.
