Pumper 584 - Chassis is at the body builder in Southern PA.
31 ft. long Spartan 6 person A/C cab, Stainless steel body, 470 HP Cummins Engine, 5 speed Allison Automatic, ABS Brakes, Rollover prevention computer, 750 gal water, 40 gal Universal Gold Foam tanks, Hale foam system, LCD Monitor over the pump controls, the camera to view the rear and sides of the apparatus. 1,500 GPM Pump, 1,500 ft 5" hose, 600 ft. 3" hose, 250 ft 2.5" hose, 400 ft. 1.5" pre-connect hose, two 2" hose storage reels 400 ft. of hose. 2 sets of extension ladders, 2 roof ladders, deck gun & blitz gun, 5,000 watt portable generator, 200' electric cord on a reel, Electric exhaust fan, 3-12 volt LED Flood lights, LED & Halogen "Roto-ray" warning lights, Federal Q2E 200 watt electronic siren, High & Low band radios, Portable radios & breathing apparatus (SCBA) for 6 fire fighters, thermal imaging camera, gas meter and all the other mandated NFPA 1901 required safety devices and equipment.
As you can see a lot of thought and work went into this purchase. We also had a consultant work on this project from outside the fire district and between him, the body builder and our own truck committee we saved $70,000 on items and equipment that we really could operate efficiently and safely. Similar pumpers, with less features are being built and put in service at this time around NYS and the country costing between $550,000 and $700,000.
NOTE: The City of Rocherster FD used the specs from our 2010 HME EVI Rescue truck to have their new Rescue 11 heavy rescue unit built.
This truck replaces pumper 585, our 2 man cab 1995 Pierce-Freightliner that cost $160,000 and we sold for $65,000 in January 2013. The cost of this new unit $430,000.
This smaller, lighter and shorter pumper is designed to get out the door with a minimum crew and be able to respond quicker than any of our other pumper/tankers and fight most of our fires without any other apparatus to supply water or equipment.
