Rescue Pumper Spec's
We are looking to purchase a Rescue/Pumper we already have a heavy rescue and a light rescue. We are looking to get rid of the light rescue and take the extrication tools and prepipe hydraulic lines into the pumper anyone that can send me some ideas on how to set up a rescue pumper would be appreciated, copies of a spec would be better. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any suggestions would be appreciated. We are a volunteer dept. with approx 30 members, with a population in our district of approx 10000. Thanks

is that the "mini" you guys are selling? or the squad? Wasn't the squad for sale a few yrs ago?

You may want to consider a rear mount pump it allows you more compartment space and a short wheel base. We currently run a E-One hush as a rescue/pumper does both jobs ok not great at any one. If you have a heavy squad for the true rescues this may be a good choice for the simple things and as a back up for multiple or larger incidents.

E33, we took the squad up to Portland with the 'For Sale' sign, what, 3 years ago? But never really worked on selling it, until just now. Look for ads in Firehouse and the PA fireman.
We're taking delivery shortly of a new Seagrave / Saulsbury, hopefully before the end of the year. If you want to look its on our home page www.bhvfd14.org.
Our membership has decided to keep the 'mini pumper' (which is what I described) and sell the 'mother squad'. I am in the minority that want to keep the 'real squad' and forgo having any big water in our station, but if someone wanted to buy Rescue Squad 14R (as it is known now), we might be able to rethink...
