2010 KME Heavy Rescue
This is a 2008 KME Heavy Rescue Truck. It is powered by a 450 hp Cummins Diesel Engine. It has a Extra Long Four Door (XLFD) cab with a 24 inch raised roof.
About this creation


Heavy rescue trucks are large tool boxes on wheels. They come in many shapes and sizes. Some are called "walk-in" rescues; these have a rear entrance into a crew compartment that runs the length of the body of the apparatus. This one is a "non-walk-in" model; the crew rides in the cab.



Heavy rescue trucks are designed to carry specialized rescue and firefighting equipment. This often includes equipment for vehicle extrication, urban search and rescue (USAR) and hazardous materials response. Most heavy rescue trucks do not carry a pump or ladders.



Kovatch Mobile Equipment - KME - is one of the leading manufacturers of fire apparatus in America. The story of KME goes back to 1946 when John “Sonny” Kovatch returned from the Army and opened a small auto repair business in his hometown of Nesquehoning, Pennsylvania. The KME Fire Apparatus Division manufactures its own custom chassis and distributes a wide variety of commercial chassis. BFD552@gmail.com

To add to the history lesson on heavy rescue rigs, you can check out the Mack Rescue that I built a while back in April 2010. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/197729

Quoting Sven Jagdmann Wow LFM, this is a great rescue truck. Love it, especially the opening compartments with the stuff in it. Absolute great work! ;)
On most all of my apparatus the compartments are real. This is with the exception of the roll-ups over the rear wheels. Also all of my ladder trucks have internal ladder storage. With the trucks with which my son plays, the compartments are packed full of goodies, just like on this rescue. I have not included these photos, but I think I may in the future.

Fantastic work as usual, i noticed the well packed compartments this time, do you keep everything equipped?
Quoting Paulo Rodriguez Very nice job! I really like the whole shape and compartment layout, something we never see from you! I think it would be cool to see where the first "Rescue" trucks started out, as I consider it a more modern piece of apparatus.
I'm sure LFM will give you the low down there, but rescue companies are a fairly old invention, as is the NYPD ESU, NYPD as it happened had a hand in the training of the first FDNY Rescue company 1.
