Anchorage Alaska Adds More KME Fire Trucks to Fleet

NESQUEHONING, PA—KME is pleased to announce that the City of Anchorage, Alaska is adding three additional pumpers to its fire fleet that already contains a substantial number of KME trucks.

All three units feature a 100-inch KME Predator™ Severe Service cabs and chassis with seating for six, RollTek occupant rollover protection, Zoll road safety systems, rear air ride suspensions, and Cummins ISX-12 450-hp engines. 

Two units are a 4×2 configuration while the third is a 4×4 using the EZ Trac hydraulic all-wheel drive system. KME was the first apparatus manufacturer to deliver this system on a previous truck to Anchorage (KME GSO 9590, 4×4 with EZ Trac, delivered earlier this year.) The EZ Trac is the only system of its kind that can be engaged or disengaged at speeds of 20 mph or less, does not require the addition of drive lines or transfer cases, and does not raise vehicle height or alter the factory turning radius.


The apparatus also includes a 1,500-gpm single-stage pump, Hades 20,000-Btu pump house heating system, Class A and B foam system, 750-gallon water/20-gallon Class A/40-gallon Class B foam tanks, light tower, and hydraulic ladder rack.

All units were purchased through KME’s HGAC contract which strives to make the governmental procurement process more efficient by establishing competitively priced contracts for goods and services, and providing the customer service necessary to help its members achieve their procurement goals. Contact KME for more information on how to maximize your purchasing power and minimize unnecessary administrative costs during the acquisition process.

KME is a leading custom manufacturer of a full range of specialty vehicles for military, industrial, commercial, aviation and municipal markets.
