HI-NELLA FIRE COMPANY
Hi-Nella, New Jersey
Hi-Nella is located southeast of the Camden and Philadelphia metroplex. The department has been protecting this beautiful village since 1940. The new Hackney replaces an ‘86 stepvan and significantly enhances their ability to rapidly deploy all the latest extrication tools the department has purchased over the past several years. The body is 18.75-ft long with nine huge storage compartments at ground level and two coffin-style roof compartments. It is mounted on an International 4400, four-door, 5-man cab with 330-hp engine. The department chose the drop/pinch frame option to maximize storage capacity (660 cu.ft, excluding roof storage). The rear extrication compartment is full body height providing instance access to all hydraulic rescue tools and hose reels. The drop/pinch frame option allowed the 25,000 watt PTO generator to be mounted inside the left front compartment protecting it from corrosive road spray. The generator powers a NightScan light tower mounted in the forward section of the recessed roof, cord reel and multiple equipment charging outlets throughout the body. These outlets are on an automatic transfer relay circuit that provides power from either the generator or shorepower connection. All warning lights, tail lights, traffic advisor light bar, compartment lights and marker lights are LED. A Federal eQ2B siren and Stuttertone air horns are mounted in the extended front bumper along with a 12,000# electric winch. A Hackney slide-out Speedi-Dri hopper is provided in the right rear wheel skirt panel. The entire electrical system is multiplexed with color VISTA LCD display control console.
