Hi guys:

I thought you might like to post this short video clip. This is the new Genesis Rescue Systems C-236 NXTgen cutter operating through what is called a Bulkhead Fitting on the new Squad Company in Morris. It is one of the 1st rigs in Northern Illinois to feature this innovative design on a Pierce rig. The power unit for the tools is recessed in a coffin compartment in the rear of the vehicle. The hydraulic lines are run through the frame rail to (2) access doors in the front bumper. Inside is a Genesis Rescue Systems OSC, Hot-Swappable coupling. When the Company arrives on scene, they activate their PTO generator and actuate the power unit. The firefighter grabs a 50′ extension hose, plugs into the port and they are ready to operate. This is versatile and allows the guys to operate within the protection of the vehicle It also eliminates the need for 100′ reels which are pricey and take up much needed space.
