Velocity® Ascendant® 100’ Heavy-Duty Tower – Patchogue Fire Department, NY

Take a walk around the Patchogue Fire Department’s newest member of their fleet, the velocity 100’ Heavy-Duty Ascendant tower! The body of the quint has nested ladder storage which is designed to accommodate 170’ of ground ladders. This mid mount platform has a camera that spots the stabilizer locations before they exit the aerial platform, which is displayed on the Pierce Command Zone advanced electronics system. The department wanted to maximize storage as much as they could. To do so, they added a toolbox within a compartment for power tools, placed peg boards inside compartments and added an EMS storage compartment.

Velocity® Combination Rescue – Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue, VA

Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue chose the Velocity cab to maximize storage space. This includes multiple compartments for additional gear and equipment. The compartments are organized based on priority so they can grab frequently used tools efficiently. The Combination HDR features recessed electrical panels to utilize storage space in front of the panel effectively.

The walk-in body is temperature controlled. The grab handles on the ceiling allow them to hang equipment and gear to dry. There is also a ladder that folds down from the ceiling to access the escape hatch. This gives the crew easy access to the 3,000-lb anchor points on the roof used in rope applications. Two 9,000-lb anchor points are mounted on the rear of the vehicle. An air dump has been added to lower the apparatus so the axles are in contact with the frame. This prevents the rig from compensating for the air suspension in winch and rope applications.

The front bumper is customized with chain compartments allowing for a grab-and-go setup. It also features a 15,000-lb winch with easy access. The storage box on the driver’s side will be used for other equipment and gives the bumper a clean look.

BRAND NEW Winnipeg Fire Truck Responding! (EQ2B & Horn)

Winnipeg Fire Department Engine 103 (using a spare), BRAND NEW Engine 101, and Squad 102 responding for a fire alarms call in downtown Winnipeg. WFD is leasing multiple stock/demo Pierce rigs, while specs for permanent replacement trucks are finalized.

I believe these new trucks will be in service for about a year, with plans to replace them with permanent trucks by next year. So far, WFD has 4 of these new Pierce trucks, with 2 of them currently being in service as Engine 101 and Engine 6 (video to come). I was told that all of the demo Pierce trucks are different configurations and set ups from each other, giving members the opportunity to experience multiple different styles of engine.

These trucks were brought in to help with the extreme shortage of front line apparatuses due to aging equipment, many trucks needing extensive repairs/servicing, and unforeseen circumstances, such as the recent stolen fire truck that led police on a wild chase through Winnipeg.
