OCALA, FL—E-ONE, a subsidiary of REV Group and a manufacturer of fire apparatus, is pleased to announce the delivery of three pumpers and two aerials for the Cincinnati (OH) Fire Department.
All five trucks have the same E-ONE Cyclone® cab configuration, which makes for greatconsistency among the firefighters using the apparatus. “It was important for me that when the driver is in the driver’s seat, his visibility remains the same all the time,” said Captain Nick Caliguri of the Cincinnati Fire Department. “Whether he’s sitting in a ladder truck or sitting in a pumper, it has the same feel. The buttons are in the same spot, mirrors are in the same location, everything is readily and easily available.”
In addition, all five of the fire trucks are equipped with the ZeroRPM® Idle Mitigation System, specifically engineered for E-ONE apparatus. The idle mitigation system will automatically switch off the fire truck’s chassis engine to power the warning lights, work lights and scene lights. Through use of the ZeroRPM® Idle Mitigation System, the Cincinnati Fire Department can reduce fuel costs, minimize engine wear, and lower scene noise, while also promoting cleaner air for the environment.
