Pierce PUC of the Month

January 5, 2011

Atlantic Emergency Solutions: Updates and Innovations
Greenfield Fire Department
Greenfield, Wisconsin - Truck Number 23580 (2 Trucks)

Greenfield Fire Department recently took delivery of (2) Quantum PUC Engines. Thank you to the Department, Deputy Fire Chief Shawn Hammernik, and Heavy Equipment Operator Greg Holz for giving Pierce the opportunity to provide these apparatus.

Congratulations to Jason Krueger of Reliant Fire Apparatus Inc. for this sale.

 Atlantic Emergency Solutions: Updates and Innovations

Greenfield Fire Department provides EMS and Fire Protection for the City of Greenfield which has a population of 36,300. Fifty-one firefighters from two fire stations respond to 4500 emergency calls per year covering 11.3 square miles.

Why a PUC?

The PUC’s short wheelbase provides maneuverability and easy access to the pump and plumbing for service were two important reasons why the department chose a PUC.

Atlantic Emergency Solutions: Updates and Innovations
This truck has several unique features that the department and Reliant Fire Apparatus worked with Pierce to deliver the functionality they need for operations. The lower crosslay provides storage for 50’ of 5.00” suction hose for hydrants.

Atlantic Emergency Solutions: Updates and Innovations

The 5” LDH swivel front discharge is gated to provide two beds of preconnected hose in deadlays located on top of the front bumper. The rear bed is designed for 100’ of 2.50” hose and a blitzfire nozzle for quick knockdown at garage fires. The front bed is designed for 150’ of 1.75” hose for dumpster and car fires. A hinged cover provides easy packing of hose after use.

Large compartments provide storage allowing the department to carry the equipment needed for operations. An access door in the back wall of the passenger side front compartment allows quick access to the onboard lube system in the station. Large extinguisher compartments are provided in the fenders with painted doors.

Atlantic Emergency Solutions: Updates and Innovations

The truck has a very low hose bed for easy access from the ground for the 1000’ of 5.00” LDH, additional hose in the removable poly trays, and ground ladders.

The ladder compartment stores a 24’ two section extension ladder, a roof ladder with hooks on both ends for safer use on a house roof, and pike pole tubes oversized to allow larger taped handle grips.

The two large rear discharge outlets are used to supply water to the 100’ Quantum Platform the department purchased in 2009.
