Darley’s In Service Podcast | New Eco-Friendly Efforts at Darley; India’s Fire Service Industry; Leaders Need to Look in the Mirror
In this episode of the In Service podcast, “New Eco-friendly Efforts at Darley”, we feature a special guest, Amanda Norman, a manufacturing engineering manager at Darley.

Lexington County (SC) Fire Services has put a Sutphen SPH 100 aerial platform quint in service in its fleet of firefighting apparatus.
The Bozeman Fire Department reported on social media June 5 that two new pumpers, originally ordered in August 2021, are nearing completion and are expected to arrive mid-summer.
Fire departments running small pumpers and utility terrain vehicles (UTVs) can choose from a wide variety of slip-in skid units for their rigs. The makers of skid units work closely with departments to develop the types of skids needed for specific applications as well as for general fire suppression from smaller platforms.
Meadville (PA) Fire Rescue & EMS had a 30-year-old aerial platform and a pumper that were starting to have maintenance issues, so the department put together a truck committee to spec out a quint that could fill the functions of both an engine and a truck. At the end of the committee’s work, the department decided to purchase a Sutphen SLR 75 quint aerial ladder.
The end result is a Sutphen SPH 100 foot aerial platform built on a Sutphen Monarch heavy duty custom chassis with a 62-inch extended four-door flat-roof cab.
Darley, Waterous and Hale all make great centrifugal firefighting pumps. If we all did not build a high-quality product, none of us would be in business for well over 100 years.
