FIREMATIC HISTORY

MVU 514 - 2010 Ford F450/OWL*VFD/Supervac

This “unyque” rig was custom designed and built for OWL*VFD’s response area including schools, multi-story hotels & condominiums. In a collaborative effort, the OWL*VFD built the skid body on a Ford F450 chassis with Supervac installing the fan, control system & scissor lift assembly. Producing 250,000 CFM (cubic feet per minute) of air flow, the fan is mounted on a scissor lift assembly that can achieve a full 355 degree rotation with a 30 degree tilt allowing the airstream to be directed as high as the 4th floor of an apartment building or hotel. This rig (along with an engine & ladder) operates from Station 14 which is jointly staffed/funded with the Dale City VFD.

Special thanks to Supervac representative John Moore for his assistance in providing information on this most “unyque” rig.
