Around 1PM on Saturday, May 12, our New Air 52 was chauffered to Station 52 by Captain Good, escorted by the current Air 52. The new Air Truck is a 2012 Spartan MetroStar/CustomFire, it has a Cummins ISL 9 450hp Engine, Allison 3000 EVS Transmission, a stainless steel body, painted roll up doors, a 6000psi Cascade System, Marathon 40kW mechanical generator, Will-Burt Telescoping light tower, high and low pressure air lines, LED scene and emergency lighting, a manual and electronic siren, and seating for 6 firefighters. The Air Truck will not only serve to supplement firefighters onscene with filling air cylinders but it will also have tools for RIT (Rapid Intervention Team), in which Good Will firefighters have been trained to be prepared to rescue downed firemen at a scene. The new Air 52 will be attending the Harrisburg Fire Expo this week and will be inservice after all equipment and radios are mounted and all members are done training on it.
