Oak Ridge (TN) Welcomes Fire Apparatus

The Oak Ridge Fire Department has welcomed a new truck in its fleet

The Oak Ridge Fire Department has welcomed a new truck in its fleet, reports WBIR 10 News.

The city posted to Facebook, “The Oak Ridge Fire Department is excited to announce it has a new truck designed for wildland firefighting. It has a 300-gallon per minute Hale pump with a 300-gallon capacity water tank and a 5-gallon foam storage tank.It can pump water through a bumper-mounted nozzle, which is operated via joystick inside the cab, while the vehicle is being driven so fire along the roadside can be contained and extinguished. This prevents having to deploy a hose line for a small area and helps to cover a larger area in less time.”
