Los Angeles County Awards 11 Engines to KME

The Los Angeles County Fire Department has awarded a contract to KME for eleven custom pumpers.
The Los Angeles County Fire Department has awarded a contract to KME for eleven custom pumpers. The purchase includes a provision for fire departments nationwide that allows them to “tag-on” to the contract and take advantage of the discounted pricing until September 1, 2012.
The pumpers feature KME’s Predator Severe ServiceTM chassis with a 450 hp engine, and an air ride rear suspension for improved vehicle ride and handling. The pumping system features a 1,500 gpm midship pump, and a 250 gpm auxiliary pump for pump and roll operations.  The tank has a capacity of 500 gallons of water and 25 gallons of Class A foam which feeds the on board direct injection foam system.  The short 175” wheelbase provides for a tight turning radius.  Each apparatus is equipped with a KME Lock-N-Load TM hosebed cover, which provides a strong aluminum treadplate working surface that can easily and safely be lifted for hose repacking with a short raised height for operations in low clearance stations.
This brings the total quantity of apparatus provided by KME to the County to over 200 vehicles.
Departments with questions regarding use of this contract for purchase can call or email KME’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Phil Gerace, at 800-235-3928.
New units will be similar to engines received in a previous order.
