ROSENBAUER has begun delivering the first of nine pumpers, all of which had been ordered in late 2008, to the Baltimore County, MD, Fire Department. Part of a $7 million fleet modernization program, the county also purchased eight medic units, as well as a Rosenbauer hazardous material truck and 75-foot Rosenbauer Viper aerial. Eight of the pumpers were designed with 750-gallon water tanks, while the ninth received a 1 ,000-gallon water tank as part of an evaluation program for rural responses.
