HR 2 showing the ability to tow large vehicles such as Engine 201
The crew of HR 2 are practicing on the rotator, learning intricate details on operating the large crane.
After months of deliberation, Heavy Rescue 2 was purchased in mid 2017. With the many vehicles that pass through the interstates, the danger of collapses due to natural and man-made disasters, and various rescue situations, FDCB has purchased a 75-ton heavy duty rotator to lift heavy objects during rescue operations to increase the capabilities of the Urban Search and Rescue Task Force. In addition to the chains and other equipment for heavy lifting, HR2 will carry a set of Holmatro extraction tools, an acetylene torch, Paratech Struts, an airbag kit, and an on-board air compressor for the air-actuated tools.
HR 2 is a 2017 Kenworth T800 with a 75-ton Century rotator and SSV bodywork. With many cars traveling through our highways and various hazards which may require heavy lifting, HR 2 is a great asset to meet these needs! In addition to the large rotator, HR 2 carries a wide variety of tools to help lift objects including a 100-ton airbag set, a jackhammer, Holmatro extraction equipment, and an acetylene torch! HR 2 will be staffed by a crew of 2 and will respond to accidents involving large commercial vehicles, collapse rescue, and other technical rescue incidents.
