The City of Lansing has added a 43-ft Hackney Technical Rescue Trailer to their fleet adding immense rescue capabilities for the Lansing region off a single response vehicle.
The 21-compartment trailer (plus four 14.5ft roof compartments) is towed by a Spartan Furion tractor with 360 hp Cummins ISC engine and Allison 6-speed automatic transmission. Over 2200 cu.ft. of storage capacity and tight turning radius makes the Hackney low-profile trailer design the ideal solution for moving a massive amount of specialized technical rescue to a disaster or any other type of rescue incident with ease and without the complications of multiple apparatus.
The rear tunnel compartment is one of the unique features of the Hackney technical rescue trailer. The 16.5ft tunnels provides for a huge compliment of various size 16ft timbers and shoring panels as follows:
- Ten (10) shoring panels.

- Six (6) 8"x8"x16' timbers.
- Sixteen (16) 6"x6"x16' timbers.
- Sixteen (16) 4"x4"x16' timbers.
- Sixteen (16) 2"x4"x16' timbers.
- Sixteen (16) 2"x12"x16' timbers.

A 21" deep fold-down step platform rated at1000 lbs. and grab rails provide safe retrieval of timbers and panels.
Electric awnings are provided on each side providing a staging area and rehab. The 20kw generator powers a light tower, two removable tripod flood lights, four upper side body flood lights, two cord reels and multiple power outlets.
