Miami Township Clermont County (OH) Takes Delivery of E-ONE HR100 Aerial

By Bill Adkins

When Miami Township Clermont County (OH) decided to replace their 2002 rear-mount tower ladder, they agreed to look for something that was maneuverable for smaller subdivisions but still maintained the 100-foot reach. They wanted something with 500 gallons of water that still had the ability to store the much-needed equipment and provided options for different hose deployment needs.  Based on all of these needs Miami Township, decided on the E-ONE HR100 rear-mount, single-axle aerial. 

Miami Township is a suburb of Cincinnati and, like most suburb neighborhoods, they have narrow residential roadways, small cul-de-sacs, tiny driveways, and the setbacks are 50-75 feet from the road. At first, one might think a 75-foot quint would work well in these conditions, and sometimes they do, however that 50-75 foot setback just gets you to the roof on most of these homes. This does not always give you the ability to reach the peak of the roof. The HR100 E-ONE gives Miami Township 25 more feet to accommodate that task and still has maneuverability close to the 75-foot quint. 

With up to 220 cubic feet of storage space, the HR100 exceeds most manufacturers’ compartment space with a single rear wheel aerial.  This will allow for fire, rescue, and paramedic equipment all while still giving Miami Township a 470-gallon water tank and a 30-gallon foam tank.
