Two heavy rescue trucks recently delivered to Boone County (MO) Fire Protection District completed an order of 12 vehicles by Rosenbauer. The rigs are built on Freightliner M2 chassis with extended cabs, and have 20 foot walk-around bodies. (Photos 1 through 3 courtesy of Sentinel Emergency Solutions.)
The Rosenbauer order for Boone County included seven Rosenbauer rear mount pumpers with Waterous S100 1,250-gallons per minute (gpm) pumps, 750-gallon water tanks, and CAFS (compressed air foam systems).
The Boone County contract with Rosenbauer also included three Rosenbauer 1,500-gallon tankers (tenders) built on Freightliner chassis.
The Boone County rescues were set up in identical fashion so that handling of equipment would be the same, no matter which truck firefighters were working on. (Photos 4 through 7 courtesy of Boone County Fire Protection District.)
The two Boone County rescues built by Rosenbauer each have a rear compartment holding two Hannay reels with 100 feet of hydraulic hose, as well as Hurst hydraulic rescue tools.
Rosenbauer built in full height and full depth compartments on both sides of the heavy rescues.
Two exterior cabinets in the extended cab of the rescues are accessible from both inside and outside, and hold turnout gear for the driver and officer.
