JERSEY CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT
Jersey City, New Jersey
Model TC1482 HazMat Trailer
Jersey City is located directly across the Hudson River from New York City via the Holland Tunnel. The HazMat team had a requirement to consolidate all their hazmat response protocols into a single response vehicle. Due to the complexity and sheer volume of equipment required to be transported it became evident that the Hackney trailer solution was their most logical choice.
Jersey City chose the Hackney TC1482, a 38-ft trailer that combined a massive 1152 cu.ft. of storage capacity, not including the rear mounted science/resource center and roof coffin compartments. Compartment widths varied based on specific equipment to be transported, thus the entire trailer was custom designed around Jersey City FD’s requirements.
The tractor selected was a Freightliner M2-112 four-door cab with 410 hp Caterpillar C13 engine and Allison 4000 EVS 6-speed transmission. Five air-suspension seats are provided.
A tractor mounted 25kw PTO generator provides power to the trailer through a Hackney umbilical connection. The generator power the science/resource center heat and air conditioning, refrigerator, freezer, light tower, cord reels and numerous power outlets.
All lighting, including emergency lights, tail lights, clearance lights and compartment lights, are all-LED’s.
The roof supports two 15-ft long coffin compartments, an OSHA compliant observation platform with folding safety rails and the light tower.
