Summary:
      Ferrara Fire Apparatus, Inc. "Ferrara" is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Inferno, Igniter, Cinder, Ultra, and Intruder vehicles built on Freightliner and International chassis manufactured August 3, 2015, to April 29, 2016, equipped with pumps to provide pressurized water to aid in fighting fires. These pumps have 6" intake strainers that may have been improperly soldered during production and, as a result, the strainers may come apart during use, allowing parts of the strainer and debris to enter the pump, possibly damaging the pump.
Consequence:
      If the strainer and/or debris enters the pump, and the operator is forced to shut down the pump, reducing firefighting effectiveness, there could be an increased risk of injury.
Remedy:
      Ferrara will notify owners, and owners will check the strainer for missing solder at the joints. Any strainers missing solder will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began on July 20, 2016. Owners may contact Ferrara customer service at 1-800-443-9006 or hale customer service at 1-800-533-3569.
