The Wildwood Crest (NJ) Volunteer Fire Department designed this FERRARA quintin mid-mount fashion to fit into the station. Chief Ron Harwood says it replaced an articulated/telescoping platform. It also has quick setup capability that helps when staffing response is low. The quint also covers three towns on working structure fire calls and covers Lower Township on dual engine responses.
