Cleveland Division of Fire Receives and Demonstrates New Fire Engine’s Capabilities
The City of Cleveland received one of three new fire apparatus for the Division of Fire. Fire Chief Angelo Calvillo provided a demonstration of the new Engine’s capabilities and features to the media today. This truck, Engine 6, will provide service in the Lee – Harvard neighborhood.
“The safety of all Clevelanders and our first responders is our priority,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “This new engine provides firefighters with a reliable vehicle to put out fires and save lives in this neighborhood. At the same time, its Chevron reflectors and LED lights keep our firefighters safer when they are responding to emergencies.”
The Rosenbauer Commander fire engine is a two stage pump capable of delivering 1,500 gallons of water per minute. It also features Chevron reflectors on the back and front of the engine and LED lights all of which provides a highly visible presence for an additional layer of protection.
For environmental protection, the engine has a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. The system meets the Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) emissions standards by reducing the pollutants caused by diesel fuel exhaust.
Engine 6 is the latest but not the last fire apparatus that the Division of Fire will receive. “Cleveland Division of Fire will receive two additional trucks in the coming months,” said Chief Angelo Calvillo. “One is a Fire Engine like the one you see here today and the other is a Ladder Truck.”
Fire Engine 6 Rosenbauer truck cost an estimated $384,766.00 and is a state-of-the-art Fire Engine Pump.
