Hampton Township FD in Allison Park, Pennsylvania

Quick response times and maneuverability were key components in the decision making process so the Hampton Township Vol. Fire Department chose this Darley WASP fire apparatus to protect their community. This rig carries the “WASP” title as being designed as a Wildland Attack Structural Pumper. Using the 4-wheel drive Ford F550 4-door chassis with a 6.7 liter 300 horsepower engine, the Fire Department is able to bring 4 people to the scene along with a Darley PSMC 1500 gallon per minute fire pump! A Foam Pro model 2001 foam proportioner and a 120 CFM rotary screw air compressor make up equal parts of the five (5) discharge Darley AutoCAFS package. Since this vehicle has compressed air foam, it really stretches the 300 gallons of water when also using the 25 gallons of foam in the foam tank. The durable PolyBilt body was chosen to maximize space by incorporating the compartments and the tanks in a 1-piece design. Ladders and various pike poles are stored on the top of the body in the hosebed area. A front bumper/grill guard with a front trashline hose well and hitch receivers front and rear cap off the bumpers on both ends of this rig. The area scene lighting is provided using Whelen Pioneer Plus Series LED lamp heads. There are two (2) on fixed mounts above the pump and two (2) on the rear with Whelen 3000 series telescoping poles. The interior of the cab also includes a custom built floor console that spans from front to back and includes numerous mounts for radios, flashlight chargers, and a thermal imaging camera.
