Polk County, Fla., Fire Rescue has taken delivery of seven custom eMAX rescue pumpers from E-One, a subsidiary of REV Group. The pumpers feature an extruded aluminum body with a low hose bed and built using E-One’s Typhoon long cab. They are powered by a Cummins ISL 450-hp engine with a Jacobs compression brake and Allison EVS3000P transmission.

“These trucks boast extra-large 60-inch-wide full depth front compartments and narrow 22-inch-wide pump panel with top mount design for a shorter wheelbase, while meeting all the requirements of the fire department,” said Amey Kelkar, E-ONE product manager for pumpers and tankers. 

Additional features on the pumpers include:

  • Full height and depth rescue-style driver- and officer-side compartments
  • Driver-side rooftop compartment including enclosed storage for two 6-inch-by-10-foot hard suction hoses
  • Top-mount pump operator’s panel with narrow side panels for maximum body compartment storage and driver/operator safety
  • Backboard storage under the cross walk
  • Weldon V-MUX Multiplex electrical system
  • Driver-side, officer-side, and rear Safety Vision cameras.

“Polk County Fire Rescue is very excited to receive these units into our fleet of emergency response apparatus,” said Polk County Fire Chief Tony Stravino. “They have been designed to provide fire protection, emergency and ALS service by an internal apparatus committee of firefighters, officers as well as county fleet mechanics.”
