    Default RESCUE PUMPERS Vs. PUMPERS

    Would like to know if alot of departments are moving in the direction of rescue pumpers. With the threats we are facing today, are we going to see rescue pumpers with HAZ-MAT capabilities? Similar to FDNY squads except with full set of rescue tools?
    What is your department runing?

    Stay Safe.
    Later.

    Default Pumpers

    We run Rescue Pumper/tankers due to our lack of water
    supply in some areas. but all our engines have full tools
    . It has been discussed about HAZMAT stuff but I don't know
    the status of that.

    We used to run an Engine and a Rescue from our station. Due to the obvious manpower problems volunteer companies had we decided to go to a Rescue/Engine unit. I can honestly say that is was a step in the right direction. So far it has worked out great for us. We designed the unit so that it could function as an Engine as well as a rescue (including Jaws). We actually designed the unit around the Squads from FDNY, we just modified it to meet our requirements. If you want any more info or pictures of the unit go to our website at: www.phoenix2jt.homestead.com. You can also email me there.

    My department has ordered what I can only describe as "unique". It will be a urban interface/rescue/pumper. CAFS system, extrication tools, first responder gear(medical), wildland firefighting equipment, and everything needed to fight a structure fire as an engine.


    Oh yeah! It will be an all wheel drive International chassis.

    due to personnel issues we took our older "heavy rescue" out of service and transformed our engine into a rescue engine that has worked out wonderfully for us. We are the only ones doing this in our region as most other POC depts have either a rescue vehicle or for soem reason the items are on their mini-pumpers.

    We replaced a "Utility" heavy rescue and a pumper with one rescue pumper, great unit but at times it feels like there is not enough space on the rig for things like hose and such since 1/3 of the compartments are taken up by extrication gear. We also got CAFS on the unit.

    Weruj1- YOU HAVE NEGLECTED TO THINK ABOUT YOUR CLOSEST NEIGHBORS!!!!!!!!!!!

    We also have been using the rescue engine concept for a long time. When our 2nd station got their new engine in 2001 they also switched over to the rescue engine instead of their mini-pumper. This has worked out great for us..........

    Cool

    Thank You WSFDEXPLR, we worked long and hard on designing the rig and we are very pleased with it. It was something we took our time on to make sure we got everything we needed. Our salesman was very helpful.
