Apparatus/Equipment

Air Trailer

With a cascade SCBA refilling system mounted in a cargo trailer and compressor mounted in the station, the Pine Mountain Fire Department can refill Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus at the scene of an incident or at the station.

The mobile cascade system features a Mako SCFS2-4HP1V fill station and four 6,000 lb storage banks mounted inside a cargo trailer. Having the fill station and storage banks mounted inside a cargo trailer keeps the operator and SCBA cylinders out of the weather while the cylinders are being refilled.

The trailer has DC powered lights inside and outside. It also has AC powered fluorescent lights on the inside and AC receptacles on all four corners for powering exterior lights or electrical equipment. An air conditioning unit is mounted in the ceiling, allowing the air trailer to be used for rehab, or for other purposes.

A generator mounted on the extended tongue provides the AC electrical power.

The compressor that recharges the storage banks is a Mako AC 105. The compressor supplies Grade “E” air, which can also be used in SCUBA tanks. The compressor is located inside the fire station equipment room, isolated from vehicle exhaust.

Department members will soon begin constructing SCBA cylinder racks that will be positioned in the rear of the air trailer and extra SCBA cylinders will be kept in the storage racks.

Department members are also planning to construct bench seating along the front and left side of the trailer for seating during rehab and for secured storage space.

The mobile SCBA refilling system is available to other agencies as needed and as available during emergency or training situations.

The SCBA refilling system was purchased from Tim Peace of B & T Enterprises in Sharpsburg, Georgia. For other Georgia fire departments considering the purchase of an SCBA refilling system, the Pine Mountain Fire Department can heartily recommend Mr. Peace and the Mako unit without any reservation.

The SCBA refilling system is owned by the Town of Pine Mountain, and was funded by a $40,000 Assistance to Firefighters Grant.
