The Deluge

Ferrara brings big flow to Brayton Fire Training Field

With a capacity of 18,000 gpm, think of Ferrara Fire Apparatus’ latest fire vehicle, the Deluge, like a fully accessorized quick-attack truck designed to tackle fires as big as those in storage tanks, said Bob Gliem, Industrial Product Specialist for Ferrara.


“It’s like a quick-attack truck on steroids,” Gliem said. “It’s built around the concept of large flow delivery.”

Ferrara demonstrated its new truck during the Hellfighter U fire school conducted at Brayton Fire Training Field at Texas A&M University in December.

With storage tanks 300 feet and more in diameter becoming more common, the idea behind the new vehicle is to develop one multi-faceted vehicle that can take the place of as many as three trailer-mounted monitors, Gliem said.

“We designed this truck to have the flexibility to go anywhere,” Gliem said. “We wanted to build a response truck that you could take to any facility, no matter what the couplings and connections, and be able to adapt it to mitigate the emergency at hand.”
