Water Supply Pumper - Carrabassett Valley FD

In the United States, it is uncommon to find a rear mount fire pump on a municipal, fire department pumper. During our 2009 rural water supply seminar in Franklin County, Maine we came across a very nice, short wheel base pumper from the Carrabassett Valley FD. Mulit 1 - as it is known - is equipped with a 1250 gpm rear mount pump. During the tanker shuttle drill, Multi 1 operated a tanker loading site where it was used to draft from a stream and supply water via LDH to a manifold. The rear mount feature proved really useful for accessing the stream - similar to a front mount pump, just on the other end!

 
The rear mount pump on Multi 1 made for easy work when drafting at this water supply drill.
