A new pumper-type vehicle entered service on April 6, 2021, within the Deux-Montagnes intermunicipal fire safety service.

This vehicle, equipped with a cabin that can carry a team of five firemen, has a centrifugal pump with a capacity of 1,250 gallons per minute (GPM), a tank of 600 gallons of water, a closed control panel, a FoamPro system with FRC foam level, a thermal camera, as well as compartments for transporting intervention equipment.

It should be noted that the acquisition of this pumper truck was included in the plan to replace the fleet of vehicles from the Fire Department, whose previous vehicle was more than 20 years old.

“In terms of safety, it is essential to stay abreast of developments in tools and work techniques. This new vehicle, at the cutting edge of technology, will improve our response capacity throughout the territory we serve, in particular through its more powerful pump , ”underlined Norbert Vendette, Director of the Deux-Montagnes / Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac Fire Department.
