    Fire talking points

    • APU reduces the DPF regen time
    • APU reduces idle fuel usage
    • APU reduces expensive PM’s on the Fire Equipment
    • APU preserves the cabin Oasis (cooling/heating) dependent on need for fireman recovery.
    • Extend the life of the truck. Idle time can b as high as 85% of the dutycycle of the truck. “big red roadblocks”

    Quote from Smeal article

    "Our exclusive SG-09 GREEN POWER technology is becoming a popular option with fire departments that are focused on fuel savings and emissions reduction. It's uniquely designed to significantly reduce both carbon emissions and operating costs while increasing the lifecycle of the main chassis engine," says Jeff Wegner, Smeal's vice president, sales. "Recent studies have shown that this technology can help reduce carbon emissions by up to 13 percent and save an average 11 percent in fuel costs each year." fireengineering.com
