Engineer/Paramedic Tanner Callan shows us his department’s new fire engine
Walk around Flagstaff Fire Department’s Velocity® Pumper with Engineer and Paramedic Tanner Callan. This will be the department’s first Velocity, providing a new cab layout and increased engine capacity.
For additional safety, they added back-up and side view cameras and an extended rear platform. The raised hose bed allows for extra compartmentation in the rear to store more equipment in the rollup compartments.
On the front of the apparatus, the department chose to have an individual light design instead of a lightbar for easy replacement.
