Medina, Ohio, purchases first upgraded TeleSqurt® Telescoping Aerial Boom since acquisition by Smeal Fire Apparatus Co.

Smeal Fire Apparatus Co. announced …that [the] Medina Fire Department in Ohio, has purchased the first 65-foot TeleSqurt®  Telescoping Aerial Boom to be sold since their acquisition of the assets of LTI in June.   The new TeleSqurt is scheduled to be delivered in late spring.

The new 65-foot TeleSqurt features a three-section extruded aluminum box boom with dual A-frame-style stabilizers with a spread of just 11’9”. The TeleSqurt is equipped with a 1,500-gpm Waterous pump, 750-gallon water tank and is capable of flowing 1,000 gpm at the tip with a low overall travel height of 11’9”. Medina’s new TeleSqurt rides on a Smeal™ Sirius® chassis with a 199-inch wheelbase.

“The TeleSqurt seemed to be a perfect fit for our department.  It gives us one-person operation.  It’s more compact than a traditional aerial and provides the elevated master stream and rescue capability that we need,” said Fire Chief Bob Painter.
