August 11, 2022

During our July seminar in Patterson, New York we got to see and use a nicely equipped water supply pumper from the Bedford Fire Department. Engine 108 is a 2000 Gowens-Knight pumper equipped with a Hale 1500 gpm front mount pump and a Trident Automatic Air Primer. The rig carries 5,100 feet of 5-inch hose, 300-gallons of water, 40+ feet of suction hose, and a wide variety of water supply-related appliances for both hydrant and drafting operations. Engine 108 was used to run a tanker loading site during the 2-hour water supply drill at our seminar hosted by the Patterson FD.
