Wyoming, MN — Today, Rosenbauer America announced the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has ordered three new Rosenbauer 6à—6 Panthers. These new Panther vehicles will join the existing fleet of six Panthers that have been working the front lines for the past two years at one of the world’s busiest airports.
“We are truly honored to be providing these specialized apparatus to protect the Atlanta International Airport,” said John Slawson, CEO and President of Rosenbauer America. “Receiving an order for three more Rosenbauer ARFF vehicles means we are meeting the needs of firefighters in both production and service.”
The capabilities of the Rosenbauer Panthers are second to none. These state-of-the-art firefighting vehicles pack a punch with 700 hp, reaching speeds of 70 mph combined with the ability to throw 2,100 gpm of foam more than 300 feet. These Panthers are also loaded with new safety enhancements, combined with a multitude of agents and capabilities to attack any fire. Cameras and lighting surround these vehicles, so the operator has full visibility day and night. Thermal imaging cameras identify victims and expose hidden fires for the Panthers with Stinger piercing tips to make the best strategic interior attack, all from inside the cabs.
The entire fleet is remotely monitored 24 hours a day to ensure the trucks are always operating at peak performance.
“Having a front-line of nine Rosenbauer Panthers will be a game changer for the men and women of Atlanta Fire Rescue,” said Slawson. “This will allow for more intensive training and the use of muscle memory when seconds matter.”
The three newest Panthers will be delivered in the spring of 2022. For more on the Rosenbauer Panthers at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, visit https://www.rosenbaueramerica.com/Media/youtube-videos/the-fire-truck-of-the-future-2020-i-volvo-penta-mighty-jobs
