E-ONE supports Escambia County Fire Rescue’s needs with custom apparatus

Escambia County Fire Rescue, based in Pensacola, Florida, has recently acquired an E-ONE Metro 100 Quint Aerial and two custom pumpers, as announced by E-ONE, a subsidiary of REV Group, Inc.

The apparatus was sourced through the E-ONE Dealer, REV Technical Center.

The equipment was specifically tailored to cater to the needs of the department and the community it serves in the Florida Panhandle.

E-ONE Metro 100 Quint’s unique features

The Metro 100 Quint Aerial is equipped with the following distinct features:

  • An E-ONE Typhoon long cab which has an interior designed for heavy-duty use and provides seating for five.
  • A torque box chassis with a 245″ wheelbase.
  • A 24,000 lb. front axle and a 35,000 lb. rear axle.
  • An HR 100 aluminium aerial ladder boasting a 100′ vertical and 92′ horizontal reach.
  • Under-slung outriggers designed for tight space setups.
  • A 1250 GPM aerial waterway.
  • An Advanced Aerial Control System.
  • An aluminium body with spacious compartments.
  • A hose bed designed for convenience and an enclosed tunnel for ground ladder storage.
  • A 1500 GPM water pump accompanied by a 300-gallon tank.

Regarding the versatility of the aerial, Escambia Deputy Chief Paul Williams noted: “We run this aerial as a quint so it has to be diverse.

“The large compartmentation allows us to carry extra equipment, ensuring the truck serves multiple functions.”

He further mentioned that another similar unit is expected to be commissioned in the upcoming fall.

E-ONE enhances fire department’s fleet with two custom pumpers

The department also received an E-ONE eMAX Rescue Pumper and a Side Mount Custom Pumper.

These vehicles have been strategically placed throughout the county.

The eMAX Rescue Pumper, in particular, has a tight pump configuration offering more compartments which the department utilises for additional rescue equipment.

Phil Gerace, E-ONE’s Director of Sales, expressed his pride in partnering with the Escambia County Fire Rescue, emphasising that the custom apparatus was designed to meet the unique requirements of their protection districts.
