New Delivery – Lovettsville Wagon 612

By Mike Sanders

The Lovettsville Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department is Station 12 in Loudoun County, Virginia.  Lovettsville borders Frederick County, Maryland and often runs mutual aide with Brunswick, Maryland.

A new Wagon 612 was recently placed into service at Lovettsville.  Painted in an eye catching lime green with green stripes, this 2012 Ferrara Inferno is equipped with a 1500 gallon per minute pump, 750 gallons of water, and has a 20 gallon foam tank.  Don’t let the photographs fool you…..Wagon 612 stands tall and carries a variety of equipment.  Although the Ferrara is not a rescue engine, it does carry vehicle extrication cribbing, Paratech Support Struts, and preconnected Hurst Gold hydraulic tools.

Some other notable and interesting features regarding the Ferrara is that “Wagon 612” lights up in green just below the Roto-Ray warning light on the front cab.  There are also two compartments by the rear wheels on each side of the truck that each hold two extinguishers and two SCBA bottles.  Finally, the front dash board is equipped with two helmet holders that secure the officer and driver’s helmets.

Wagon 612 is the department’s primary engine company and replaced a 1999 Pierce Dash engine.  In addition to the Ferrara, Station 12 operates a 2003 International 4×4/Pierce engine, a tanker owned by Loudoun County, a Ford F brush truck, and several Ford F ambulances and support vehicles.
