The Meadows Field Airport Kern County Fire Department
Customer needed a solution to assist their firemen with fighting fires more effectively and to improve operational safety. The piece of equipment we looked at included the department’s fire truck, specifically the boom on the truck that is used to reach multiple angels to help put out the fire. This type of equipment is used at airports if there is a crash and/or fire.
Hydradyne worked with the Kern County Fire Department to implement an electronic control system, utilizing Parker IQAN technology, to help control the boom on the fire truck.
This solution allows for better handling, helps avoid possible user error, could potentially prevent injuries, and protects the equipment from any unnecessary damage.
