FDNY Begins Rebuilding Process

The Fire Department of New York (FDNY) has begun replacing equipment destroyed Sept 11, 2001.

Saulsbury Fire Rescue of Preble NY has received contracts secured by the local Saulsbury dealer, Absolute Fire Protection headquartered in South Plainfield NJ for this equipment:

  • Five heavy-duty rescues (26-foot walk-in body) mounted on tandem-axle Cyclone II cab/chassis units.

  • Two tactical rescues (15-ft non-walk-in body) mounted on International Truck 4×4 cab/chassis units. These vehicles include rescue cranes and quick-deployment rescue boats mounted on top of the bodies.

  • Two high-rise rescues (walk-in body) mounted on Mack MR cab/chassis. These vehicles have breathing air cart assemblies that carry equipment for high-rise building fires.

  • One Satellite pumper mounted on a Mack MR cab/chassis. They have a 4,000-gpm water/foam turret and two 2,000-gpm monitors. Typically, these trucks are used for high-rise and industrial fires.

All these units will be engineered and built with Saulsbury's stainless steel body and substructure design. The Cyclone II cab/chassis used for the heavy-duty rescues is produced by Saulsbury's sister company, Emergency One Inc in Ocala FL.
