Georgia’s Terrorism Response Team Orders 13 Rosenbauer Apparatus

The Terrorism Emergency Response and Preparedness Division of the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA), has purchased nine special-response and four heavy-rescue vehicles from the General Division of Rosenbauer.

Georgia law enforcement agencies will receive nine medium-duty hazmat special-response trucks. The nine units will have General’s heavy-duty 3/16-inch aluminum rescue-style walk-around bodies, mounted on Freightliner M2-106 chassis.

The trucks will be assigned to the following Georgia law enforcement agencies – Hall County Sheriff’s Department, Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department, Laurens County Sheriff’s Department, Musgogee County Sheriff’s Department, City of Rome Police Department, Gwinnett County Police Department, Cobb County Police Department and the City of Waycross Police Department. The last unit has not been assigned.

GEMA has also ordered four additional Rosenbauer tractor/trailer heavy rescues. The four units, like 10 previous ones built for Georgia Search & Rescue, will have heavy-duty Rosenbauer walk-around aluminum trailers with Spartan Gladiator custom tractors. The new units will be assigned to the City of Calhoun Fire Department and the City of Valdosta Fire Department and the two last units have not been assigned as yet.

The acquisition of these new vehicles is part of an aggressive and on-going program by the Georgia Emergency Management Agency to provide Georgia’s fire and law enforcement agencies with the latest technology in emergency response vehicles.

Bob Milnes of Fire Fighting Innovations, Coral Gables, Fla., sold all 13 trucks.
