NEW BREAKER 27

CARVER BREAKER 27
The Carver Fire Department took delivery of their new Breaker 27 in March 2013.
The 2013 International 7400 4x4 / VTEC Brush Breaker has a 250 gpm rear diesel pump,
carries 800 gallons of water, and 20 gallons of class A foam. The truck was based on the design
of Carver's older breakers, but because of changes in the size of the chassis a good deal of work
went into fabricating this newest brush breaker. It has front and rear winches, and a pneumatic
tank dump system that allows it to participate in water shuttle as well as brush firefighting.
The new breaker will be at Central station.
The 1991 International / Murphy brush breaker it replaced will be reassigned
as Breaker 26 and serve as a spare unit, nearly identical to the units at Stations 2 and 3.
1991 Breaker 27 will become Breaker 26 in Reserve.
New Breaker 27 next to the 1967 International / Farrar Breaker 23.
