Ferrara Fire Apparatus Inc., a subsidiary of REV Group®, and a leading manufacturer of fire apparatus, is pleased to announce the delivery of a Ferrara HD-77TM ladder to the Santa Fe Fire Department in New Mexico.
Key features of the HD-77 ladder include:
- 96” wide extruded aluminum custom cab with reinforced roll cage construction
- 4,100 square inch windshield with a 43.1 degree viewing area for maximum visibility
- Cummins L9 450 engine and Allison 3000 EVS™ transmission
- Heavy duty 3/16” extruded marine grade aluminum body
- 3-section heavy duty steel ladder with -6⁰ to +72⁰ operational envelope
- Waterous CSU 1500 gpm single stage pump
- 500 gallon water tank
This new apparatus will also feature the department’s first clean cab configuration, with a separate compartment designated for bunker gear and SCBA storage. “The goal is to keep those contaminants outside the cab and keep our firefighters safe. Moving forward, all of our trucks will have this,” said Brian Moya, Santa Fe’s Assistant Chief of Support Services. “It was also important to work with a local dealer that provides great customer service as well as a long-term maintenance plan.”
The Ferrara HD-77 ladder will replace an aerial that was damaged by an arsonist 18 months ago. Because the Ferrara HD-77 ladder was a stock unit, the department was able to get the much-needed apparatus more swiftly. Even so, Moya said they were still able to customize all compartments to meet their specific needs. This includes coating the interior of all compartments to maintain cleanliness of both the compartment and any tools or equipment stored there. 411 Equipment is mounting all equipment in the truck and providing final graphics before delivery.
“We are excited to partner with the Santa Fe Fire Department in providing an aerial that will meet the specific needs of its community,” said Bert McCutcheon, Vice President and General Manger for Ferrara. “We believe they’ve made a great choice for their city with the Ferrara HD-77 ladder due to its 77’ vertical and 70’ horizontal reach in a compact and maneuverable truck.”
