Heavy Duty Rescues

 

DANVILLE LIFE SAVING CREW

Danville, Virginia

Model DFC1382R

Specifications

Danville is now served by what can be classified as truly a Heavy Rescue. The completed apparatus was factory-loaded with a huge cache of rescue equipment and debuted at the FDIC, receiving accolades from both attendees and technical writers on hand to see the latest innovations in the fire service. This 22.5-ft body is mounted on a Spartan MetroStar powered by a Cummins ISL 9, 450 hp engine to handle the steep grades in the Danville response area. Due to the weight of the heavy equipment load and the 229” wheelbase, the front axle is rated at 21,500 lbs.

The body features eleven (11) cavernous compartments at ground level and six (6) 24” deep roof coffin compartments. The total storage capacity is calculated at 840 cu.ft. When Hackney calculates storage capacity, they only calculate useable space, that is space through the door pass-thru, not unusable interior space. Thus, 840 cu.ft. is an amazing number considering its all useable and easily accessible.

Taking a look at the attached drawings and following photos one can easily see just how versatile this rescue is relating to space utilization and organization of equipment. This is virtually impossible to accomplish with conventional bodies that do not use the Hackney drop/pinch frame technology that is so popular in technical rescue and haz-mat truck applications today.
