Our very unique Fire Truck Pedal Car is not similar ( without the nozzle ) to the “airport crash tender”, a fire engine designed for use at aeroports in aircraft accidents. The features include a good acceleration, ability to move on rough terrain outside the runway and airport area, large water capacity, a foam tank, a high-capacity pump, and water/foam monitors with a good throw distance. Newer Fire Truck vehicles also incorporate dual nozzles/injection systems to inject a stream of Purple-K dry chemical into the Film Forming foam stream “knocking-down” the fire faster. Some also have Halotron tanks with handlines for situations that require a clean agent to be utilized. These features give the airport crash tenders a capability to reach an airplane rapidly, and rapidly extinguish large fires with jet fuel involved. Some tenders have an elevated extended extinguishing arm called a Snozzle, giving a possibility to raise a water/foam cannon into the height of approximately 10–20 metres (33–66 ft). Some arms have reinforced nozzles that can puncture through superficial structures of an aeroplane to fight a fire inside the fuselage. Depending on the airport category, the standards determine the minimum number of rescue firefighting vehicles. In addition, requirements are given on the water and foam capacities, discharge rates for foam solutions, and minimum dry chemical powder amounts, reserve stocks of fire fighting agents, ability to operate on rough terrain, and acceleration of the air crash tenders. The end of each runway must be reached in a response time of two minutes, and any part of the movement area has to be achieved in a response time not exceeding three minutes.

It’s not often we learn about the ways to extinguish a fire. The enemy is comprised of oxygen, fuel and heat that kindles the fire. There are three choices to extinguish a fire; to smother it, to cut off the fuel source, and to cool the fire below the flammability temperature. The method to use depends on the type of fire; the first is classified as Solids such as wood or paper, the second as flammable liquids like gasoline, oils or paints, the third as electrical equipment, and the fourth as flammable metals like magnesium – all referred to as class A,B,C and D fires. Extinguishing characteristics can vary- where dry materials that melt and coat the burn area, are useful in all classes of fires. Inert gases such as argon or nitrogen are used in fires, where the material burning react dangerously to water or extinguishing agents. Water is still the most common agent for quenching class A fires, both cooling and smothering the fire. Water agents known as detergents enable the penetrating ability of water. Foam is the most common agent used to suffocate flammable liquids like oil. Halogen compounds and carbon dioxide are effective in fighting an electrical fire, smothering it, however carries toxic and corrosive vapors with it – gives reason why all professional fire-fighters are equipped with oxygen tanks, but still is the agent of choice for class C fires.

People literally ran to the Fire to assist, which introduced the need for running boards and back steps, solving the problem of transporting people; shown by our early Fire Truck Pedal Car . The added weight in apparatus, pumps, ladders, ropes and water, rendered the Horse as ineffective, calling for greater power to propel the Engine; which would be the Steam Engine from 1841- 1920. By the early teens, the Steam propelled Fire Engine would be replaced by the Motorized Fire Trucks, that have advanced with state-of-art technologies that we are protected with today.
Supplying adequate Fire-fighting equipment in the early 1900′s, was always a challenge. When urban cities grew, the Aerial component became more and more necessary. At first, manually extendable ladders were used; as they grew in length and weight, they were placed over two large wheels. Before long, the turntable ladder was mechanically extended, installed directly on top a Fire Truck. After WWII, the turntable ladder was supplemented w/an aerial platform w/snorkel referred to as the “Cherry Picker”; this addition allowed reaching “Dead Corners” up to 150′. Our beautifully crafted Fire Truck Pedal Car , was the basis for the early Aerial platforms.
