Video: GMA Visits San Francisco to Check Out New Pumpers

Michael Doran of Ferrara Fire Apparatus says Ferrara’s goal was “to put vehicles on the street that are best suited to San Francisco’s operating conditions. So, we built engines that have a 169-inch wheelbase, an overall length of 28 feet, and a turning radius of 25 feet.” The engines are built on Igniter chassis and cabs with space for six firefighters and have an extruded aluminum body, a Waterous CMU 1,500-gallon-per-minute (gpm) side-mount pump, a 500-gallon water tank, a hosebed capacity of 1,500 feet of three-inch supply line, two rear preconnects of 200 feet of 1¾-inch hose, and one booster line reel on the left above the pump panel.
