Rosenbauer/Spartan 1500/1000 Custom Top Mount Pumper
Topsail Beach Fire Department, Pender County, North Carolina
TOPSAIL BEACH– Topsail Beach FD in Pender County, NC has taken delivery of a new Top Mount Custom Pumper built by Rosenbauer. The Department spent considerable time investigating different cab options and eventually settle on a Spartan Metro Star cab with a Cummins ISL 450 hp engine.
Members of the Department used the State Show in Raleigh to compare body construction methods and get ideas on options that made sense for them. This also helped convince them that the Rosenbauer 3/16″ aluminum FX body with a hot dipped galvanized subframe was the superior product for their needs.
The Topsail truck carries a 1000 gallon booster tank, a Hale QMAX 1500 gpm pump, and a Foam Pro foam system. A 15′ light tower and a rear mounted electric cord reel are powered by a 10kW generator. There are a total of eight (8) spare SCBA cylinders stored in two wheel well compartments. The truck has a color coded thermoplastic top mount pump panel. The body has hinged rescue style doors on the right side of the body. Ladders are stored above low side compartments on the left for easy and safe access. The truck’s front bumper is extended 20″ and accommodates a hose tray and discharge.
