Brush 1

2002 Ford F-350 Brush Truck

Brush 1 is a 2002 Ford F-350 XL SuperDuty. It is equipped with a Prime Manufacturing skid unit that carries 200 gallons of water and 20 gallons of Class A foam. Brush 1 has four pre-connected hose lines including a 50-foot section of forestry line off the front bumper as well as a pair of forestry lines and a 1.75" hose line off the rear.

Brush 1 has perhaps the most misleading name of any vehicle in the Maumelle fleet. Instead of being used exclusively to fight wildfires, Brush 1 is equipped to handle a variety of functions. In addition to it's four-wheel drive ability and its stock of wildfire hand tools, Brush 1 is equipped with self-contained breathing air packs for use in structural firefighting as well as a fully-stocked emergency medical bag. Brush 1 also has the ability to tow the Mobile Air Unit.

Brush 1 is housed at Fire Statation 2 and is either cross-staffed by career firefighters from Engine Company 2 or operated by volunteer firefighters. It is pictured below in Fall 2002 with it's original stripe package.
