Ferrara Fire Apparatus, Inc. "Ferrara" is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Igniter and Ultra firetrucks. These vehicles are equipped with Meritor axle assemblies that were built with disc brakes using MGM J24 series air brake chambers. In the affected axles, the brake chambers may leak pressure allowing the parking brake to drag when it is supposed to be released. Brake dragging could lead to overheated brake components.
Overheated brake components could result in a fire.
Ferrara has notified all affected owners and has replaced all of the affected brake chambers. Owners may contact Ferrara at 1-800-443-9006.
