MODEL 18-TYPE 1 INTERFACE
SETTING THE STANDARD OF EXCELLENCE FOR PERFORMANCE AND DURABILITY IN INTERFACE FIRE APPARATUS DESIGN
The HME Model 18 – Type 1 Interface sets the benchmark for American urban interface design. Its tight-turning and durable HME 1871 SFO® Chassis was specifically developed and engineered to reach remote and rugged off-highway locations, accessing terrain that would stop ordinary pumpers in their tracks.
Born through decades of partnership with CAL FIRE and California’s OES (Governor’s Office of Emergency Services) the HME Model 18 – Type 1 Interface met the challenges of this unique and rugged brand of firefighting with a balance of specialized features and technology. The modular and corrosion-resistant HME stainless steel body was also designed with storage solutions for interface operations in mind. HME Hydra Technology™ provided the final element in creating a balanced and dependable fire apparatus that was made for the rugged and rough world of wildland firefighting.
