Fire and safety innovators and leading manufacturers have partnered to ensure apparatus operators can focus on the fireground by pairing innovative technology with a truck design that considers every detail of operation. Idexfiresafety.com and Rosenbauer America have formed an agreement to offer the revolutionary SAM Integrated Total Flow Control System exclusively through Rosenbauer for rear-mount pump applications.
Rosenbauer’s rear-mounted apparatus with SAM™ Systems will be available with IDEX Fire & Safety’s Hale Products, RSD, or RME pumps.
“IDEX Fire & Safety is committed to delivering impactful pumping solutions to first responders that improve speed, efficiency, and safety on the fireground,” said Bill Simmons, president, Fire & Safety at IDEX Corporation. “This partnership with one of the industry’s leaders in apparatus technology and design reinforces our commitment to this mission.”
Reflecting IDEX Fire & Safety’s ability to form strong partnerships and customized solutions for original equipment manufacturers, Rosenbauer will be the only truck manufacturer licensed to install SAM™ Systems in a rear-mount application.
“By pairing IDEX Fire & Safety’s SAM System with Rosenbauer’s rear-pump applications, we’re simplifying complex fire pump operations and getting water to the initial attack crew faster, saving time, lives, and property,” Simmons said.
The SAM™ System makes complex pump operations simple by managing the water flow so the operator can focus on the fireground and the safety of their crew. SAM is an integrated total water flow control system that manages the truck’s pump, tank, intakes, and discharges while protecting the apparatus’ pump, ensuring consistent water source and warning of any disruption in flow.
“For Rosenbauer customers, this means they can get the highest quality apparatus on the market today, integrated with the most advanced total water control systems,” said Mark Fusco, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Rosenbauer America. “This partnership reinforces our commitment to continuously bring the best innovations to firefighters.”
