E-ONE, a subsidiary of REV Group and a leading manufacturer of fire apparatus, announces the delivery of six E-ONE® Custom Rescue Typhoon Pumpers for Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services in Canton, Ga.
These six E-ONE apparatus are being added to the department’s fleet of 13 Typhoon engines purchased since 2012. The E-ONE Typhoon was selected due to superior cab safety and accessibility to pump, plumbing and chassis components. Each of these pumpers has an overall length of 30’10” to meet fire station requirements and tight angles of approach.
Key features of Cherokee County’s E-ONE Custom Rescue Pumpers include:
- Severe duty dash, engine cover and door panels
- 12” vista roof for increased interior head room
- Seating for six, with (3) SCBA seats
- Rear wall medical cabinet with locking roll up door
- Cummins L9 450 HP engine with Allison 3000 transmission
- 6Kw Hydraulic generator for 110V systems
- LED lights for all warning, driving and work area lighting for improved visibility in heavy traffic and nighttime operations
- VMUX electrical system with driver Vista IV display
- Axis® Smart Truck Technology
- Lowered crosslays for improved ground level access for (3) hose lays
- Enclosed storage tunnel for (3) ladders, (2) pike poles and (1) backboard
- 1500 GPM Hale QMAX pump
- 1030 gallon water tank
These six fire trucks will be placed in the department’s busiest stations, according to Cherokee County Fire Chief Tim Prather.
“Through my now 34 years with this department and my first-hand experience with the E-ONE engines, I have developed the highest level of confidence that I am placing my personnel in one of the safest apparatus that can be purchased,” Prather said. “The turning radius of these trucks seem to be the best on the market. My driver operators say that the overall handling is awesome.”
“It’s truly an honor to build six more Typhoon chassis pumpers for Cherokee County,” said Joey Belle, E-ONE Vice President and General Manager. “They have a great rescue pumper design and this latest group of units has a few updates that include crosslays that are lower for easier access and increased LED scene lighting.”
