Jefferson Township, NJ. The Explorer 28 landing craft will improve water safety in the area and be a great as- set to the Jefferson Fire Department. The Explorer 28 features a Darley PSDE1500 Direct Mount Fire Pump which allows for 1500 gallons of water to be pumped per minute. This discharge pressure allows for quick extinguishing of dangerous ? res. To keep this pump operating at its highest capacity, a PumpBoss control- ler monitors the intake as well as discharge pressure, which will prevent cavitations that would reduce effec- tiveness. This vessel will be utilized for law enforce- ment as well as ? re/rescue missions. It includes a Twin
Display Garmin electronics package with radar and marine VHF, and is equipped with the Whelen Law En- forcement lighting package.
The vessel’s hydraulic actuated folding mast provides the ability to easily pass low clearance areas while put- ting off minimal impact to personnel. In addition, Twin
Mercury Verado 250 HP outboards add high speed ca- pabilities to the boat.
