Engine 51 was placed into service with the Gun Barrel City (TX) Fire Department in August, 2016. The cab (12-inch raised roof) is the E-ONE Typhoon X (medium) model mounted to a Typhoon X chassis. Cab seating for four is provided along with one medical cabinet installed on the left cab wall over the front wheel well. External entry for this cabinet is provided. Both cab and body are constructed of 3/16-inch extruded aluminum, and ROM roll -up doors are part of the body package. SCBA bottle storage is located adjacent to the rear wheel wells (four on the officer side and three on the driver side). Power is provided by a 450-hp Cummins ISX12 engine and an Allison EVS 3000 five-speed transmission with pushbutton shifter.
The apparatus has a Hale Qmax 1,750-gpm, single-stage pump (midship) and a UPF Poly III 1,030-gallon rectangular tank. The front bumper tray carries 100 feet of 1¾-inch hose. The crosslays (located behind the cab) consist of 300 feet of 1¾-inch hose (100 feet on the front lay and 200 feet on the rear lay). A Hannay booster reel with 200 feet of 1-inch line is mounted in the dunnage pan on the right side. An Akron deck gun (remote-controlled) is mounted adjacent to the booster reel. The hosebed carries 1,000 feet of 5-inch LDH and 400 feet of 3-inch hose. Alco-Lite ladders (24-foot two-section, 14-foot roof, and 10-foot attic), pike poles, and a backboard are stored in a tunnel on the right rear of the body.
The warning lights include a Whelen Freedom 72-inch light bar (Model FN72QLED) centered on the front cab roof with Whelen M6 Super LED lights adorning the perimeter of the cab and body. Two Whelen Model L31 beacons are mounted on the rear corners of the body.
Scene lighting is provided by Whelen 600 Super LED lights mounted in the cab behind the front cab doors and Whelen Pioneer Plus Model PFP2 lights (one mounted on the cab brow and two mounted on telescopic poles on the left and right rear of the cab). Audio warning devices include a pedestal mounted Federal Q2B and a Whelen Model 295HFSM1 electronic siren module. One Federal Dynamax ES100 speaker with an “E-ONE” grille is mounted through the left front bumper.
