Priority Response Vehicle™ in High Demand
Breda, Iowa - Toyne’s Priority Response Vehicle™ (PRV), is in high demand. The Iowa-based fire apparatus manufacturer recently delivered two new PRVs, one to Rotterdam Fire Dist. #7 in Schenectady, NY, and one to West Liberty, IA.
In an effort to bolster their growing fleet, Rotterdam Fire Dist. #7 approached Authorized Toyne Dealer VRS Sales to engineer an apparatus to fit their needs. Built on a Spartan Metro Star LFD 10” raised roof cab and chassis, Rotterdam’s PRV is outfitted with a welded stainless-steel body, and is driven by a Cummins ISL 450 hp engine and Allison 3000 EVS transmission.
Designed to battle the most ferocious flames, Rotterdam Fire District 7’s PRV boasts a 1000 gallon UPF tank, Hale Qmax 1500 pump, and a 2001 Class A Foam Pro foam system. To round out their new Toyne, an Onan 10k hydraulic generator has also been included. The Rotterdam Fire Dist. #7 serves a community of over 65,000 citizens.
Firefighters in West Liberty, Iowa took a similar approach when they called on Toyne to design a side-mount Priority Response Vehicle for their fleet. The welded, stainless-steel PRV body was mounted on a Spartan Metro Star EMFD 10, and is powered by a Cummins ISL 450 hp engine and Allison 3000 EVS transmission.
Equipped to take the fight to the fire, West Liberty’s new PRV pumper includes a Hale Qmax 1500 pump, 1000 gallon UPF tank, a 2001 Class A Foam Pro system, and an Onan 10k hydraulic generator. In the event that additional light is needed, West Liberty’s new Toyne also includes Fire Research telescoping lights.
West Liberty is located in Muscatine County, Iowa, and as of 2010, had a population of nearly 3,750 residents. West Liberty’s new apparatus was sold by Dale Derner of Toyne.
Designed to allow department’s to choose the pump panel location, Toyne’s PRV slide out and down pump panel was named one of the ‘Top 9 most interesting firefighting products of 2015’ by FireRescue1.com. The compact design saves storage space and maximizes efficiency for emergency personnel.
