The Fairfield Fire Department recently took delivery of a refurbished heavy rescue unit equipped with an International Navistar 4400 chassis.
The project costing approximately $220,000 was completed at a savings of $84,000 to the community of Fairfield, Ohio, by the reutilization of the existing apparatus body which was constructed of stainless steel and aluminum.
The project was managed by All American Fire Equipment of Washington Courthouse, Ohio and the worked was completed by E-One in Ocala, Florida.
The original unit was built by Saulsbury Fire Equipment located in Tully, New York. The heavy rescue apparatus was constructed on a 1986 GMC Kodiak Chassis powered by a 3208TA Caterpillar diesel engine and Allison transmission. The unit was also equipped with an Eagle 18cfm hydraulic breathing air compressor, Eagle fill station, and four 6000 psi DOT cylinders. In addition, the unit was also equipped with a 15 kw hydraulic generator.
The new rescue unit is equipped with a Bauer SCBA fill station and Haskell compressor pump and six 6000 psi D.O.T. cylinders. The refill capacity of the on board system has been projected to be 50+ 4500 psi SCBA cylinders. As part of the breathing air system a 24 cfm stationary compressor and fill station was installed at Station 33 located on Winton Road. The unit is also used to refill the on board refill system.
The heavy rescue unit is also equipped with pneumatic rescue bags, hydraulic extrication equipment, and a variety of equipment used to support the various operations of the department at the scene of an emergency.
A modified Class A motor home, the Mobile Command Center serves several vital roles when responding to an emergency:
The front portion of the new unit contains bench seating, tables, a sink, microwave and refrigerator. This portion of the unit will be used to shelter and treat victims and to rehabilitate emergency personnel.
The rear portion, which can be isolated from the front via a sliding door, is designed for managing the situation. The area is equipped with three work areas, chairs and radios that will provide communication capabilities to a variety of jurisdictions. The unit is also equipped with a wireless network that will accessed by laptop computers.
This unit will used at structure fires and to support large city events and other activities. The vehicle will also be made available, through mutual aid arrangements, to other local departments.
The Fairfield Fire Department responds to all medical emergencies with an Advanced Life Support (ALS) transport unit staffed by paramedics.
Depending on the nature of the call, an engine or ladder truck will respond to assist with patient care. All primary fire apparatuses are equipped with ALS gear including a monitor/defibrillator, cardiac drugs and advanced airway equipment. The Fire apparatus is staffed with at least one paramedic with the remaining crew trained to the EMT-B level.
Regardless of the type of situation found, a paramedic is always in contact with the patient from the scene and during transport to the emergency room.
