Engine 25 Arrives Home
Several Monroe Fire Company members recently took a trip to the Pierce Manufacturing facility in Appleton, WI to make a final inspection of the new Engine 25. Captain Devin Flickinger took several photos during the trip, including two of a very special friend the guys made on the return flight. Click the image above to view the slide show.
Production Report 6 (Part I and II)
March 8 – We’ve received two separate production reports for the new Engine 25 today, the first showing the exterior of the engine and the second focuses on the interior.
In the first production report (click here to download the report), you can see that compartment lighting has now been added.
In addition, the new ladders have now been mounted in a special through-compartment located on the driver’s side of the engine.
Also note that compartment lighting also has been placed in the top-mounted compartments.
Finally additional detail work has been completed on the pump panel and discharges and intakes have been labled.
The second part of the latest production report details interior work that has been completed on Engine 25.The beginning of the report details the driver’s side of the cab including switch placement, dashboard layout, Pierce Command Zone monitor, and function controls including: climate control; tire chains; engine brake; generator control; and of course, warning lights and sirens.
The driver can also view water and foam levels and pump pressure from the interior of the cab.
The report also details the officers side of the cab and the crew cab, including SCBA mounts, which will lock down in the case of sudden deceleration of the vehicle – very similar to a seat belt. This will prevent the SCBA from dislodging from the seat and striking the vehicle occupannts in the event of a crash.
Part II of the report can be downloaded here.
