Corteva Agriscience is an agricultural chemical and seed company, active in the research and production of seeds, seed traits and treatments, crop protection, digital services and inoculants.
This multipurpose response pumper will be used for industrial urban interface and petrochemical mutual aid responses. It will be outfitted to respond to such emergencies as petroleum fires, vapour mitigation, Hazmat, medical, technical and confined-space rescue responses.
‘Safety was of the utmost importance in selecting this fire truck,’ said Robbie Morris, Fire Chief of Corteva’s Fire Department. ‘Protecting our employees, our community and the environment were our top priorities. The increased pump capacity will allow us to flow more water for increased vapour mitigation and fire suppression. The engine will be equipped with cameras all around to increase engineer visibility when manoeuvring around incident scenes.’
‘The employees at Ferrara are honoured to have the opportunity to build this industrial pumper,’ said Chris McClung, Director of Sales for Ferrara. ‘We worked closely with Corteva’s Fire Department in designing a thoroughly researched, multipurpose industrial pumper that will meet the specific needs of this company.’
This Ferrara pumper is a replacement truck for the department, their first new apparatus in almost 20 years.
