E-One Titan HPR G-Series vehicle puts some hustle into aircraft incident response

What accelerates from 0 to 50 mph in less than 30 seconds to face a potential major aircraft incident? Emergency One's new Titan HPR (High Performance Rescue) G-Series.

This unit can carry approximately 3,200 gallons of water, 200 gallons of foam concentrate, 500 pounds of dry chemical, rescue tools, and a two- to four-person crew.

Developed through a contract with the Royal Netherlands Air Force and Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport for a combined order of 34 trucks, the vehicle is powered with a MTU V12 1005 bhp diesel engine combined with an Allison six-speed automatic transmission. The 8×8 full-time all-wheel-drive chassis has independent suspension. This truck is capable of a minimum of 30° of static side slope stability and a minimum of 12° of dynamic side slope stability — while using the onboard fire extinguishing agents.

The firefighting package includes a 2,000-gpm water pump; a cab roof-mounted turret capable of flowing about 660/1,320 gpm; and a front bumper-mounted turret that can produce roughly 500 gpm of water or foam solution. With the roof turret, there is an optional Hydro-Chem technology feature wherein the dry chemical agent is encapsulated within the water and foam solution to enable the agent to be propelled three to four times further than conventional delivery systems. Swing-out side hose reels also are optional.
