Mack CF Pumper Hazmat 1

Hazardous Materials Company 1 Of the FDNY was organized on October 15, 1984 in a fire station at 56-29 68th Street in the Maspeth section of the Borough Of Queens. Haz-Mat 1 is the largest company unit in the FDNY and has an officer and seven firefighters on duty on each tour. They cover the entire city on special calls for their specialized services, since the inception, this has been a two-piece unit. They share quarters with another special company, Squad Company 288, which has an officer and five firefighters assigned on each tour. When first organized they were equipped with a specially built 1983 American La France/Saulsbury first piece, and a retrofitted 1979 Mack Type CF 1,000 GPM Pumper as the second piece, this Mack (FDNY registration #MP7928) was originally assigned as the pumper of Engine Company 26 and was part of an order of seventy´┐Żfour 1979 Mack 1,000 GPM Pumpers and six 2,000 GPM Pumpers. As the second piece of Haz-Mat-1, it was modified to carry specialized equipment, plus neutralizing agents and absorbents. It remained in service until 1990 when it was disposed of. Its place was taken for almost two years by the 1983 American La France/Saulsbury, which in turn was replaced by a much larger, 1989 Mack/Saulsbury hazardous materials truck.
