Photo of the Week: Consort Fire Department’s pumper
Calling all fire photographers: FireRescue1 wants to see your pictures! The next time you come across something inspiring, take out the camera and submit it to FireRescue1! Just remember to include your name, agency information and brief background information on the picture.
This week’s photo of the week comes to us from Austin Toohey, a volunteer firefighter with the Consort Fire Department in Consort, Alberta, Canada.
The department’s 2014 Rosenbauer top-mount enclosed pump truck is a combination of a wildland truck and a traditional engine, which responds to every call to which the department is called, including medical, wildland fire, structure fire and MVC calls. Located in a rural area, the department covers close to a 2,000-square-kilometer area, as well as providing mutual aid to neighboring departments.
The apparatus features a top-mount enclosed pump, which pumps 4,000 liters a minute, as well as a front-mounted turret, and front and rear side sweeps on both sides of the engine. The truck is also 4WD-equipped, and has a power ladder rack, as well as a roof-mounted Honda generator.
