Fire service news

Excerpts from ktar.com:

The idea behind Rosenbauer America’s all-electric concept fire truck is a fire truck for the future. The vehicle is designed to be more efficient and environmentally friendly than traditional fire trucks and reduce carcinogens in stations and on scene, resulting in decreased exposure to cancer-causing exhaust.

“It’s a 475-horsepower, battery-operated fire truck. It has a sustainability at about an hour to two hours as far as electric charge,” John Slawson, CEO of Rosenbauer America, said while showing the truck at the Phoenix Fire Training Academy. “We have a battery extender with an exclusive 6-liter diesel engine,” he added. “That provides an additional eight hours of service without recharging.”

The world’s first electric fire truck is unlike anything previously seen in the industry. It’s nearly silent and accelerates quickly and stops on a dime, attributes Rosenbauer says are crucial for firefighters. The truck includes large screens on the dash for the officer to use. It has no side mirrors, making it easier to get around in tight spaces. Instead, there are cameras with interior monitors.

Los Angeles is the first fire department in North America to buy one. Rosenbauer has also sold them to departments in Berlin, Dubai, Oslo and Copenhagen.

This from Steve Redick:

I took a few shots of squad 7 and engine 9 conducting training on the new squad apparatus. It is very unusual to see engine 9 off the field, not to mention seeing them hooked up to a city hydrant. This took place at a vacant school about 40th & Federal. All the images and a short video can be seen here:
