Nesquehoning, PA – KME is pleased to announce the Baldwin County Board of Commissioners (GA) has awarded KME and its sales representative NAFECO, a purchase order for three (3) KME Custom Pumpers for the Baldwin County Fire Department, GA.

The pumper body will be constructed of 3/16” aluminum and features a wide hose bed configuration with enclosed ladder storage within the body, backboard storage and safe, lowered crosslays. Additional features will include a Hale QFlo Plus-125, 1250 GPM Single Stage Pump, dual front bumper hose storage wells to accommodate 150’ of 1.75” forestry hose each, as well all LED lighting, and a Waterous Aquis1.5 Class “A” foam system.
