Bacolod City Fire Station (BCFS) had its new Rosenbauer firetruck blessed on Monday after the flag-raising ceremony with Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) 6 Regional Director, Sr. Supt. Eleuterio Iturriaga gracing the event.

According to BFP, BCSF has one of the two Rosenbauer firetrucks the region received from BFP’s national headquarter.

The other one is in Iloilo City Fire Station.

The Rosenbauer TLF 4000 is a 1,000-gallon capacity with a 240-hp water cooled main engine and connected to the water pump via power-take-off (PTO).

It has a seven-passenger seating capacity and can discharge 2,400 liters of water per minute.

Moreover, it has a strong water cannon that can push water up to 62 meters horizontally and 24 meters vertically – equivalent to an eight-story building.

The 240 hp engine is very capable to traverse on and off road and can be used to collect water from different sources. (PNA)
