    You're dept is switching from Pierce to Ferrara?...You're kidding right. I hope you don't buy the economy type std. engine from Ferrara. My dept. recently bought the econo trucks and wow do they suck. One of them sound like a coffee can full of nuts and bolts getting shaken as it goes down the road. My previous dept. has Pierce and won't buy anything else. Ferrara, just say no!

    Default Ferrara???????????????

    Hopefully the originator of this thread DIDN'T buy a Ferrara. We don't have any of them but a neighboring FD has 3. An Engine on an ALF 134 Chassis, and 2 Rescue bodies on GMC Top Kick Chassis. One is a heavy rescue and the other is a haz-mat truck. For ANYONE considering a Ferrara make sure you specify doors on your compartments. According to the factory, doors are NOT a body component but ACCESSORIES, therefore not covered by the body warranty.

    Exclamation Inferno Rescue Pumper

    Nokesville Volunteer Fire Department, located in Prince William County, VA has recently placed a 2003 Ferrara Inferno rescue pumper in service, equipped with a 2000gpm pump and 1000 gallons of water.

    Take a look at it on the Virginia Fire News website at:

    (BTW, I'm associated with the magazine, not the FD!)
