The South Plainfield (NJ) Fire Department designed this E-ONE platform quint in a rear-mount fashion. Chief Tom Scalera says the surrounding departments all have mid-mount platforms and, at times, the department is requested to provide service where the rear-mount design would be advantageous. The department protects a suburban residential area with wide streets as well as some industry and hotels.
