FDNY Pumpers awarded to KME
« on: December 01, 2012, 04:05:40 PM »
On October 19th of 2012, KME was given the Notice Of Award for the contract to build a total of 91 2000 gpm pumpers.

"The actual purchase order contract has not been signed as yet, November 28th, 2012. Delivery of the first of them is not expected until late Fall of 2013"

We can use this thread to track the progress of the order

I wonder how the finished product will turn out, what the cab layout will be?  I'm gonna assume that it will more or less match the current Seagrave from the pumps back.  Ferrara designed the Ultra cab for us, than REdesigned it again for us.  Will KME do the same and build a new cab/chassis specifically for this order?

FDNY KME's will have stainless steel cab which require less bracing thus they will be smaller than L.A. & Philly on the outside while having more interior room.

Interesting that two of these had water towers as part of the unit.  What type of water towers do they have?  They must be pretty light weight.

Bulldog, They used to operate the 50' snorkel telesquirt. It was a articulating waterway only. I am not sure if anyone manufactures that type of elevated master stream anymore.

Yes I know they used to operate those.  I also know several of their engine companies have this same type of Snoozle that are used for CFR units.  I was just wondering what type of unit they are using for the water towers on the units described with the picture.

I read somewhere that they were going to retrofit the Telesqurts from the ALFs onto the KMEs

There were Snozzle devices installed on two of the PFD KME pumpers.  One for Engine 38 in Tacony and one for Engine 57 in West Philly.  Prior to these rigs Philadelphia used the 54' Squrt device.
