The KME PRO rescue pumper is a multi-purpose response vehicle designed to address the ever-changing needs of today’s fire service. With a standard 382 cubic feet of compartmentation and a larger body option of up to 580 cubic feet, departments can carry the equivalent of a heavy rescue full of tools and equipment. The driver-side compartmentation is full height/full depth, which allows for unlimited storage options. The PRO short wheelbase is only 176 inches, providing for a highly maneuverable turning radius. Other features include a best-in-class rating of 2,000 gpm, 1,000-gallon water tank, 20-gallon foam cell and a direct injection foam system that can deliver Class A or Class B foam to multiple discharges. Suctions and discharges have been completely eliminated from the pump operator work area and moved to the front, rear and officer’s side of the truck. The discharges and suctions are electrically operated and a camera system lets the operator see the other side of the truck to maintain view of hydrant and pump operations. The diagrammatic pump panel makes operating the system easier than ever.
