1,000 gal tank, class A&B foam, 1750 gpm pump;a ;a
Nice engines, guys.
I'm stoked, gonna be a fast truck too. We have a 96 model currently that's very similar but it only has a 350hp cummins diesel. This one is a 500hp cummins diesel.
Did somebody mention fast
Our ALF will run 90mph uphill fully loaded on Interstate 80 into a headwind;f ;f ;f ;f ;f
It's one heck of a screaming engine. Has the biggest cummins diesel that will fit onto the frame coupled with a allison tranie.
Did I mention it's a screamer;e ;e ;e
Fast DOES matter! Last night, we outraced the other responding ladder to a structure fire. They got stuck with RIT duty while we entered. In our old ALF Tower Ladder (RIP), we never won the race to this area but our little ladder scoots!
I got a new T-shirt in this week for the new truck..
"If you can read this, you must be second due"
on the front it says.. "second to none"
and we're station 2, now re-named to 13, but still called 2.
But real fire engines are red. At least the ones I played with as a kid were!
ya, it must suck keeping a white truck clean..
I came from departments with Chartreuse trucks. I still have an affinity for them, but I'm getting used to red..
fire fighters argue over all topics...in Wilmington NC at a regional training seminar in 2003 the whole bar (about 100 ff) were shouting what color firetrucks are. Some said white, green, even blue, but The winner was " FIRETRUCKS ARE RED".
Yep, they are all RED all right;f ;f ;f ;f ;f
