The FireStorm 32's shallow draft, maneuverability and firefighting capability make it the first choice for operation in shallow waters close to concentrated
shoreline populations, around busy recreational traffic and commercial shipping routes. Most emergency situations occur in shallow or inaccessible water outside of marked navigation channels or close to shore. The diesel waterjet configuration is able to operate in very shallow waters without risk to damaging the drive unit from hitting submerged objects. The simplicity of the propulsion and firefighting systems ensure ease of maintenance and service. The FireStorm 32 is the highest pumping fireboat for its size and can be configured to meet a broad range of
performance requirements, regional service availability and budgets. Even during firefighting missions the boat can be safely operated with only two crew members.
With a single 1750 GPM rated firefighting pump the FireStorm 32 can produce flow meter results of 2,000 GPM at 150 PSI and 2,400 GPM at 60 PSI for LDH shore hydrant supply. A remote operated monitor mounted on
the cabin roof provides the primary firefighting capability from a dedicated console within the cabin and an optional secondary monitor can be mounted on the bow. Two 2.5" discharges and a 5" Storz are fitted on the aft deck. Twin diesel inboard engines matched to water-jet propulsion
units can propel the boat to speeds of 42 knots and allow the boat to perform emergency stops and change direction within two boat lengths. Aft working deck space is maximized with well-defined steps that allow clear access to the oversized dive platform/recovery deck which provides water level working space for deployment and recovery.
