Orange County Fire Authority Purchases Additional KME’s

KME, a member of REV Group, announces that that the Orange County Fire Authority has tagged onto their 2015 bid and order and has purchased an additional six (6) 101’ tractor drawn Aerials and ten (10) custom pumpers to join dozens of KME’s already in service. 
Tag-on’s such as these are often part of a long term purchasing agreement that allow customers to increase safety, efficiency and cost for multiple years while minimizing the expense and delays of repetitive procurement processes.
The TDA tractors will be KME Severe ServiceTM cabs with a 10” raised roof, and Cummins ISX-15 550hp engine. The aerials include a 1500gpm pump, 300 gallon water tank, and an AerialCatTM 101’ ladder with pre-piped waterway. These tandem axle units have an equipment capacity of double the NFPA requirement for an aerial ladder!
The pumpers also include a Severe Service cab, Cummins ISX-12 450hp engine, 1500gpm pump, 500 gal water/10 gal foam tanks, and galvanneal steel fire body with customized shelving and compartmentation.
