COVID-19 resources for fire and EMS

GRANT OPPORTUNITY

FEMA makes additional $100 million available to fire/EMS for COVID-19 response

Grant application period open: April 28 to May 15

FEMA is providing $100 million in supplemental funding for personal protective equipment (PPE) and related supplies to the fire service community to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding is part of the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act through the Assistance for Firefighters Grant Program.

Details about Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) are changing rapidly and it’s easy to get information overload, but first responders need to be prepared to encounter cases. COVID-19 presents as a respiratory illness with mild to severe symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath. It is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus and spread via respiratory droplets with close contact, like the flu.

Guidance for EMS and PSAP from the CDC

The CDC has published interim guidance on COVID-19 for all first responders. This includes the fire service, emergency medical services (EMS), law enforcement and emergency management officials. If you anticipate close contact with persons with confirmed or possible COVID-19 in the course of your work, please read this guidance.

The interim guidance suggests specific modifications to EMS practices for patient assessment, personal protective equipment (PPE) use and aerosol-generating procedures (e.g., intubation, CPR, etc.). EMS employers can use the guidance to assess current practices, procedures and training and ensure they are up-to-date.

E-ONE VM8 Two Door Rescue Pumpers

Affordably priced, firefighting trucks you can depend on

Two-DOOR RESCUE PUMPERS

All-aluminum, huck-bolted body designed for long-term durability and maximum storage capacity. This technology provides a lightweight body without sacrificing structural integrity. The design has been verified with stringent Finite Element Analysis (FEA) where the body is stressed to the maximum chassis Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) and off-road frame twisting to assure long-term durability.

Unlike most formed bodies, the VM8 body uses formed structural shapes that create a skeletal framework that equals the strength and durability of extruded bodies. The body incorporates structural integrity that permits E-ONE to provide an industry exclusive standard 15 year structural warranty. Aluminum is 5052-H34 tensile strength, the same material used for large aircraft for decades. Huck-bolts are used for fastening to prevent wallowing and loosening inherent with commonly used conventional bolts, screws and rivets.

The VM8 body substructure is designed and tested to support the entire body and water tank. Structural shapes are not less than .190 (3/16”) with .250 (1/4”) crossmembers. Salt Spray Testing is to ASTM B 117 guidelines using structural components fastened together and chamber tested for 1000 documented hours. The completed processes depict the effects of galvanic and crevice corrosion.

FEA (Finite Element Analysis) Validated Integrity

All E-ONE bodies have been extensively tested using Finite Element Analysis technology to insure what is designed, built and delivered will stand up to the rigors of the missions for which they are designed. The stress analysis involves computer simulation of the chassis maximum twist against the body to identify any potential weak areas of the design and remove those prior to final design release. The bodies are mounted onto the chassis using an outrigger flex mounting system that permits the body to flex against the chassis, diminishing the transferred stresses to the body. This method of body mounting is far superior to conventional U-bolt or other rigid body mounting procedures.

Employee CPR Training

Employees of Fire Line Equipment & Keystone Emergency Vehicles completed CPR and AED training. The training was held for all employees who needed certification. We would like to thank Frank S Dowlin for his expertise and thorough training. This training is part of our commitment to employee safety and training within our facility.

In addition to the CPR training, A new AED device was placed into service at the Fire Line Equipment facility.

Here are 10 great reasons why you should learn CPR this year!

Heart Disease is the Leading Cause of Death in the United States

According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., claiming the lives of more than 600,000 people each year.

CPR Saves Lives

While heart disease is on the rise, CPR can help save lives. According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occurred in 2016. Sadly, 88% of people who suffer from a cardiac arrest outside of the hospital die. However, when properly and promptly performed, CPR can dramatically improve person’s chance of survival.

Anyone Can Learn CPR

Anyone can learn CPR and everyone should. The American Heart Association reports that 70% of Americans feel helpless to act in the event of a cardiac emergency because they either do not know how to effectively administer CPR or their training has lapsed.

The Life You Save May Be That of a Loved One

Did you know that four out of five cardiac arrests occur at home? Not only that, but many victims of sudden cardiac arrest appear healthy and may not have any known heart diseases or risk factors. Performing CPR promptly may save the life of someone you love.

Prevent Brain Death

Brain death occurs four to six minutes after the heart stops breathing. CPR effectively keeps blood flowing and provides oxygen to the brain and other vital organs, giving the victim a better chance for full recovery. Everyday Health reports that If CPR is given within the first two minutes of cardiac arrest, the chances of survival double.

CPR Makes You Smarter

Let’s face it, by the time you complete CPR training, you’ll know something that you didn’t know before you started!

You’ll Feel Confident in the Event of A Cardiac Emergency

CPR classes will equip you with the tools and the confidence you need to transform yourself from the role of bystander to lifesaver. CPR certification will give you the necessary training to make the right decisions in the event of a cardiac emergency.

CPR Classes are Fun

By nature, CPR classes are hands-on and interactive. While there may be some online training involved, course participants will learn how to properly execute chest compressions in a fun and supportive environment.

You’ll Test Your Musical Knowledge

The tempo at which you should give chest compressions lines up nicely with popular musical gems such as the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive,” “Walk Like an Egyptian” by the Bangles, and “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” by country duo Big and Rich.

Join the 3 Percent

An online resource for emergency medical services personnel, EMS1, notes that “Although evidence indicates that bystander CPR and AED use can significantly improve survival and outcomes from cardiac arrest, each year less than 3% of the U.S. population receives CPR training, leaving many bystanders unprepared to respond to cardiac arrest.” Become a part of the solution and sign up for a CPR training course today.

10 Year Service Anniversary

Today we celebrated Shawn Smith’s 10 years of service Anniversary with Fire Line Equipment. We had a great lunch and topped it all off with one of his favorites- Peanut Butter iced long johns made into a cake.  We thank Shawn for his 10 years of hard work and dedication.

Shawn Smith- Looking back on the past 10 years

On September 8th, Shawn Smith will officially hit 10 years as an employee with Fire Line Equipment. Shawn was the first employee hired by Tim and Ron to join their team. Ron had approached Shawn to work for FLE as a road technician. Shawn’s experience for the job came from 18 years of employment with Ladder Towers Incorporated, which at the time had become American La France Aerials -located in Brownstown, PA. Tim and Ron had both known and worked with Shawn at LTI and ALF. At this time, Tim and Ron were just putting together the shop in East Earl. Shawn now has 28 years of experience in the fire apparatus industry. I asked Shawn a few question about his employment with the company and here is what he had to say.
What did you do before working at FLE? – I was very young when I started at LTl. I tell everyone I grew up on firetrucks because I was 20 years old when I started. Tim was my boss and was the one who originally hired me in 1991 on the assembly line. Everything I learned there has prepared me for the work I do here. I did assembly, electrical assembly, ladder assembly, service work and road work. Then Ron became my boss when he brought me on for technical support group. I was in this position until I left their in 2009. I never thought I was going to make this my career. I had originally thought I wanted to be a paid fireman. I had taken my tests but was never high enough on the list as I was missing some EMS certification. But after being at LTl for 10-12 years, I thought … well… I have so much time invested and have learned so much that I think I will make this my career. As I tell a lot of people, I could not do what I do here, without the 18 years of experience I got from LTI.

Since FLE was a newer company, what factors helped you decide to take on a position here?

When Ron was still at ALF, he had approached me to go on the road to help make ALF profitable again in some way. I was going to leave the technical support position I had been in and go on the road again. However, Ron left to go work at KME. So that never transpired and I stayed in tech support until I left in 2009. Ron approached me to do the same thing here that he wanted me to do at ALF. Road service/technical support. So one evening at a dinner meeting, Ron, my wife and I sat down to discuss the job with FLE. After speaking to my wife, I decided to take the position. I never thought FLE would fail or not take off or not succeed. My only question was -how long would it take to take off and how long or far could it go. How long would it be till we have a building etc. Before I knew it, when I started in September, they had already found a building to lease and were constructing offices so they could sit and make phone calls. They added 2 bays to do service work in the shop as well as road work and technical support. They purchased a van for me and my position took off from there. Many customers in the industry already knew Tim, Ron and myself. This initiated the trust needed for customers to let FLE do their service work.

What are some of the changes or differences you have noticed being an employee for 10 years?

When FLE first started, everyone was hands on all things. We were small and everyone pitched in to get the job done. As the company continued to grow, things became more segmented. Which is not a bad thing. It was difficult however, to know you were not a part of a certain area anymore that you may have been involved in from the beginning. It was good to grow and blossom the way it did. But it was hard to remove yourself. Knowing that you were once a part of it, but now it was someone else’s job to take care of. Whereas now we have “divisions” and everyone has a certain job to do. I know this is needed for all we do and it’s a great thing.

How has your job evolved from day one? 

Recently, I have been on the road more than usual. Even though I was hired as a road technician, I now work in the shop on specific issues that may need trouble shooting. Or help a tech working on a truck that may run into something that needs trouble shooting. I don’t necessarily wrench on a truck every day. My job primarily consists of technical support with customers. I talk through an issue on the phone to solve a problem .It either works, and they fix it themselves. Or it leads to a part they need, and I turn them over to the parts department. It could mean speaking to Shannon to schedule the customer’s truck to come in for service. Or we send a road tech or myself out for the service work. My job is to get the customer’s issue solved to get the truck fixed. Whether it’s on the road, on the phone or while the truck is in the shop. Remaining hands on helps me keep up with the changes that naturally occur in the industry over time.

What do you most like about working at FLE?

It’s not the same thing every day. It can be a frustrating and challenging job, but getting to the resolution is  so satisfying at the same time. In the end, it’s so worth it.

How do you think moving into the new building has helped the company?

You are just able to do so much more. Even at face value, when a customer comes and looks at the shop, they see a perception of  a clean shop and  a business that cares. When you see all the truck sitting outside, it tells you that a lot of customers trust us to  work on  their apparatus.  It’s also  nice that it came as quick as it did. Because it would be tough to continue to do what we do, and what we want to do in the smaller building.

How do you see FLE growing in the next few years?

I see us adding more techs, getting  busier and  becoming even  better at all we do. I see us getting more business on the refurb end of things. The more customers that see the refurbs we do, the more new customers will call us. The process will expand and the smoother it will go. On the ambulance side, I also see us getting more work as the word gets out. As the ambulances come in, we will get better and better as we learn. We are already known for our customer service, technical supports, service work and parts department. This will help to grow the ambulance side.

 

Thank you Shawn!

If you see Shawn, congratulate him on his 10 years of service!

How to buy technology for major events

FireRescue1

Shoring up your incident management capabilities for extreme weather events

“One of the most visible consequences of a warming world is an increase in the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events,” reports the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, adding, “The National Climate Assessment (2018) finds that the number of heat waves, heavy downpours and major hurricanes has increased in the United States, and the strength of these events has increased, too.”

Such extreme weather events (e.g., tornados, tropical systems, heavy snows) can challenge even the most prepared and best-equipped emergency managers and their organizations.

In this article we’ll look at some technology and tools that can aid you and your organization in being better prepared and equipped for extreme weather events. For each technology or tool, I’ve identified where it can be used to make one or more of the sections in the incident commander’s general staff safer, more efficient and more effective.

INCIDENT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE (PLANNING SECTION)

Emergency managers must ensure that the software they choose can be used, not just across the public safety agencies in their community, but also across as many non-public safety organizations as possible (e.g., hospitals, schools, public works, military civil support teams).

Unprecedented Floods Across The United States Are About To Get Even Worse

It’s already been a rough start to 2019 along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers in places like Nebraska and Iowa, where lots of “bomb cyclone” snow and rain has led to record flooding, but the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts that things are going to get worse and more widespread as spring continues.

“The extensive flooding we’ve seen in the past two weeks will continue through May and become more dire and may be exacerbated in the coming weeks as the water flows downstream,” said Ed Clark, director of NOAA’s National Water Center in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. “This is shaping up to be a potentially unprecedented flood season, with more than 200 million people at risk for flooding in their communities.”

NOAA says there is an elevated risk of flooding in the coming weeks for two-thirds of the states, with 25 likely to see moderate or major flooding. The agency defines both terms as involving some level of inundation of roads and structures and requiring evacuations. Major flooding simply means more extensive inundation and evacuations than at the moderate level.

TIPS ON BUYING AND SELLING USED FIRE TRUCKS

Selling or buying a used fire apparatus can be complicated and frustrating. While some departments decide to do it on their own, others choose a company to make the process easier and more efficient.

When a department is selling an apparatus, we strongly recommend they look for a broker or dealer that has national exposure. That will bring the most buyers to the table for their apparatus and provide the most value to the selling department. Whether buying or selling, departments must make sure to check the reputation of the company that they’re looking to do business with.

Selling by owner may allow departments to receive more money than if a dealer buys it directly. The downside is that you do not know how much you will get for your apparatus or when it will sell. Using a well known company like Fire Line Equipment offers fire departments exposure to a large number of potential buyers that can be difficult to reach on their own. If you have an apparatus for sale, do you think you can get the best value through 100 potential customers seeing it or 4,000 potential customers? Always check references and to look for a company that has market presence and size to help meet your specific needs.

Buying used can be an affordable way to upgrade rigs, while selling used rigs can off set some of the cost of that new or near new apparatus. Understanding the lay of the land and learning from others can keep departments from getting burned in a used fire apparatus deal.

When looking for the right used fire apparatus dealer for your department, there are several key points to consider:

  • How long has the dealer been in the business of selling used fire apparatus?
  • What kinds of services can they provide? Many dealers offer vehicle-locator services to help fire departments find the right fire apparatus for their needs and their budget. They can also provide services such as body work, painting and repairs to motors or pumps.
  • Can they provide a list of previous purchasers of their fire apparatus for your department to contact?
  • Can we drive and operate the apparatus?
  • Can we have a third party inspect the truck prior to purchase?
  • Is the pump and/or aerial test current?
  • Is the seller able to make changes to the truck like paint, lighting, graphics etc?
  • What is included in the purchase of the used fire truck?
  • Is there financing available?

 

Many used fire apparatus dealers today have trained technicians and mechanics in their employ who have the experience and expertise in working on used fire apparatus. Fire departments may find that it’s to their benefit financially to have any necessary work performed on the apparatus they’re considering for purchase by the dealer – especially when they consider that those additional costs can be included in the total purchase price that they will be financing.

One of the keys to success in purchasing the right used fire apparatus for your department is learning as much as you can about the condition of the apparatus before you purchase it. Prepare yourself, and everyone involved in the decision-making process (e.g., an apparatus purchasing committee), before you make the trip for an in-person evaluation of the truck.

Fire Line Equipment offers quality used fire trucks for sale that are owned by either a fire department or Fire Line Equipment. We believe in service during and after the sale. We’re not just a broker, a dealer or an individual selling a used fire truck. Fire Line Equipment is a full service fire apparatus dealer offering new fire apparatus sales, used fire apparatus sales, fire truck service and repair, apparatus refurbishment and fire truck replacement parts.

E-ONE DISPLAYS MORE VERSATILE 100-FOOT PLATFORMS AT FDIC INTERNATIONAL

OCALA, FLORIDA – April 10, 2019 – E-ONE, a subsidiary of REV Group and a leading manufacturer of fire apparatus, announces enhancements for its aluminum and steel 100-foot platforms on display at FDIC International, April 11-13, 2019 in Indianapolis, IN.

The 100-foot platform enhancements include short jack capability, greater below grade reach, a new fabricated turntable and a new Cummins engine that is 600 pounds lighter, making these aerials more versatile than ever in meeting the demands of today’s fire departments.

While the E-ONE 100’ platform’s crisscross under-slung jack spread of 15’6” requires less space than competitive models, the new short jack option allows the apparatus to be set up with outrigger deployed on only one side of the apparatus using a spread of only 11’2”.

“We are extremely excited about now being able to offer short jack capability on our 100’ platforms,” said Joe Hedges, E-ONE Product Manager. “And with the added stab jack to the end of the outriggers, we gain a tremendous increase in lift, allowing departments to set up on steeper grades when performing rescue operations or fighting fires.”

The redesigned aluminum HP100 platform can now lower to 10 degrees below horizontal, greatly enhancing its rescue capability. “Customer feedback on the steel 100’ platform’s ability to go to -10 prompted us to design this same great feature into the aluminum 100’ platform as well,” said Hedges.

Other notable features of the E-ONE 100’ platforms include:

  • 2.5 to 1 structural safety factor – exceeding NFPA requirements by 25%
  • Large extruded aluminum platform with angled corners and perimeter step
  • Wide ladder sections and tall handrails for safe and secure climbing
  • Advanced Aerial Control System with color displays containing mission specific screens
  • New fabricated turntable design reduces weight for additional equipment capacity
  • Formed integral torque box frame provides a solid foundation for the chassis and aerial
  • New Cummins X12 500 HP engine provides 600 lb weight reduction
