2000 E-One Titan 6x6 ARFF
This is a 2000 E-One Titan HPR 6 x 6. It has a 2000 gpm Hale pump and carries 3000 gallons of water and 400 gallons of foam concentrate. It is powered by a Detroit Diesel 585 hp engine.
About this creation


Aircraft rescue and firefighting (ARFF) is a special type of firefighting that involves the response to aircraft ground emergencies. Because of the mass casualty potential of an aircraft emergency, the speed with which ARFF apparatus respond is critical. ARFF apparatus such as this are designed for rapid acceleration and to operate on unpaved surfaces. They also must carry large volumes of water and foam.



The Federal Aviation Administration regulates ARFF operations at all airports in the United States that have scheduled passenger flights. The required minimum complement of ARFF apparatus at an airport depends on the size of aircraft operating from an airport as well as the average number of daily departures.



The Federal Aviation Administration also requires all ARFF apparatus to be a yellow-green color.



This Titan has a roof turret as well as a bumper turret. These can be operated by the crew from the safety of the cab. It carries extrication tools and has hose reels on both sides of the apparatus.







Many larger airports also have structural apparatus to protect the airport infrastructure. ARFF apparatus like this Titan are larger than structural firefighting apparatus. BFD552@gmail.com



For the curious, a copy of the 2011 Federal Aviation Regulations for ARFF apparatus is available online. www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/150_5220_10e.pdf

Now this is a real monster! Awesome design, I like it a lot. I especially love that you kept the proportions by making it ten studs wide - I had the same idea with my ARFF.

very creative with the windshield, never seen that before :P if all the 6 wide builders did that with two 4 wide windshields, it would make 6 wides look good :)

Very nice! The only thing I noticed is the windshield looking somewhat out of proportion, but I think that's simply due to the way the parts work out, not the design. I had to read those FAA regulations for a class this past semester, interesting stuff for someone who is both a fire buff and an aviation buff.

Just keeps getting better and better whenever you pop out creations! I love this piece, very well detailed and I love the lesson that goes along with it. The only experience I have with airport firefighting was in the navy on the USS Enterprise. So this was very interesting to read for me!
