WESTCHESTER COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF EMERGENCY SERVICES
White Plains, New York
Custom Cab Heavy Rescue with Auto Deploy Staircase
Westchester County is bordered by New York City to the south, Long Island Sound to the east and the Hudson River to the west and the State of Connecticut to the north. Protecting a major commerce center keeps this Hazardous Materials Team busy.
Westchester County chose a 21.5-ft Hackney DFC1373ADS body that features 13 ground level compartments and three roof compartments totaling 980 cu.ft. of storage capacity. Access to the roof compartments is made safe and easy via Hackney’s exclusive Automatic Deploy Staircase (ADS).
Full body length awnings are provided on both sides of the body with enclosure curtain provisions.
A 25,000 watt PTO generator is located in the left front compartment, fully protected from the salt overspray prevalent in the coastal region. It powers flood lights in the upper left and right side body, rear tripod flood lights, portable flood lights; two cord reels with 200-ft 10/4 cable, and all power for the cab command center and SATCOm systems.
All tall compartments are provided with Hackney’s exclusive drop-down step platform, providing an 11” deep Grip-Strut surface to reach the upper storage areas.
A 95 gallon overpack drum can be stored in the lower side compartments for easy deployment due to 40” lower compartment depth. A slide-out Speedi-Dry hopper is installed behind the right rear wheels that will hold up to 80 lbs. of granular material.
The rear of the cab is configured to provide a two-man command and logistics center with stainless steel slide-out desk, cabinets towers each side of desk and library shelf above the desk.
A slide-out rack is provided that will accommodate twelve (12) complete SCBA’s. All NFPA warning lights, tail lights, traffic advisor light bar, clearance lights and compartment lights are LED.
