Ferrara Fire Apparatus, Inc. "Ferrara" is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Inferno, Igniter, Intruder and Cinder fire trucks built on Freightliner and International chassis manufactured April 13, 2015, to May 30, 2016. The affected vehicles may be equipped with certain C20 and C21 split-shaft transmissions from Waterous. This transmission sends power to the wheels of an emergency response vehicle or powers an add-on unit such as a water pump used for fighting fires. A component within the shift unit may be damaged and as a result, the operator may not be able to switch the power output.
If the power output cannot be changed, once the fire truck arrives at the scene, it may not be able to pump water to aid in extinguishing the fire, increasing the risk of injury.
Ferrara will notify owners, and the shift unit assembly will be removed and the clevis pin and retaining rings will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began on September 9, 2016. Owners may contact Ferrara customer service at 1-225-567-7100 extension 3011.
