  • The Wellington Advertiser - New Hillsburgh fire pumper authorized by towns councillors
    John Brennan asked if the pumper has the same capacity as the current one Wayne Cunningham is a retired deputy fire chief in Mississauga Part of his role was in the purchase of fire trucks for the city He spoke about the layout foam system and the advantages of the proposed truck He said that while the truck has the same water capacity the truck utilizes a foam system that in effect increases the ability of the water to do its work Cunningham stated the truck is laid out with the firefighters in mind It will be laid out so that for all the trucks in the Hillsburgh station the equipment will be in the same or similar areas He pointed out other safety features that allow the firefighters to be able to operate certain equipment from the truck rather being on the road In addition the truck will have a deluge deck and water cannon that can be operated from the truck Cunningham added the layout means fewer trips up and down the truck and less standing at the side of the road The foam system he said was developed in the past 10 years It increases the fire fighting capacity of the 500 gallons of water by 10 to 20 fold He estimated a house fire that might take 1 500 gallons to fight might be dealt with 300 gallons of Class A foam that would knock it down He said using less water means fewer claims due to water damage The other issue is that the vehicle will eventually be used as a pumper and rescue truck after additional components are installed Cunningham said when there is sometimes a limited number of firefighters multiple tasks can be done with one vehicle Councillor Josie Wintersinger asked for more information about the foam system and was told that foam makes the water wetter by reducing surface tension While foam was originally used to fight chemical and petroleum fires it is now used on wood He stressed foam is non toxic Foams used now are a lot more environmentally friendly Brennan asked if the use of foam would create any breaks on insurance for local homeowners He heard insurance ratings for the town are based on a number of factors including the number of fire fighting vehicles response times water supplies and truck capabilities Callaghan said the 1984 pumper did not meet insurance standards at the best of times and the pumping capability of the proposed truck is twice that of the old pumper He anticipates it will improve the insurance rating but stressed it would be based on a five year study through the insurance company Mayor Lou Maieron posed a simple but important question will it fit in new fire hall Callaghan said it will Maieron asked if there is consideration of a ladder truck in the future based on growth in the municipality Callaghan doubted the town has the 1 5 million available right now for such
