It’s the longest body Rescue 1 has ever put on a heavy rescue for a fire department, but it’s exactly what was necessary to meet the requirements of the East Freehold (NJ) Fire Company.
Mike Marquis, vice president of sales for the rescue division at Rescue 1, says the fire company “wanted an all-in-one rescue truck” that could perform multiple tasks and carry the equipment necessary for it. “This is the longest body we’ve built to date—28 feet,” Marquis says. “That meant a wheelbase of 278 inches and an overall length on the vehicle of 44 feet, two inches.”
The heavy rescue that Rescue 1 built for the fire company has a 24-inch extreme duty front bumper that carries a preconnected Holmatro combi tool and a Holmatro cutter, Nick DiNicolas, chief of the East Freehold Fire Company, says. “Also, the rear compartments on both the driver’s and officer’s sides are mirrored in that each one has a 100-foot hydraulic reel, a portable power unit, and Holmatro cutter, combi tool, spreader, and rams.”
