Tamarac, FL - Weighing in at 36,000-lbs., the 2020 E-One Typhoon engine features a 1500-GPM pump, 750-gallon water tank and 30-gallon foam tank. This unit is equipped with six attack and supply lines, totaling 2,500-feet of fire hose with an additional booster line built in. This engine is also designed with a clean cab concept, focused on decreasing firefighter exposure to cancer-causing carcinogens. This is the first of its kind within our department, as we are committed to firefighter safety. Included in this delivery were two new 2021 Freightliner Rescues. Designed and built with the clean cab concept, in addition to the exclusion of the pass through from the cab to the box, anti-bacterial lighting, and a Power-Load stretcher. These rescues will operate out of Tamarac Station 36 and 41.
