Complete with rock ‘n’ roll-style tour T-shirts, IDEX Fire & Safety brands, Akron Brass, Hale and Class 1 are traveling across the United States with a demonstration pumper truck, showcasing the new SAM touch screen water control technology.

SAM, which IDEX Fire & Safety introduced last month, is an integrated total water flow control system that manages truck’s pump, tank, intakes and discharges.

SAM easily allows pump operators to adjust flow with a touch screen display that is mounted on the truck and helps firefighters get water moving quickly and efficiently, while allowing more freedom and mobility at the scene of a fire.  SAM drastically simplifies pump operations.  Traditional pump operations require up to 13 manual steps to get water flowing and the water source established.  With SAM, it only takes three simple finger swipes on the screen.

Since FDIC International, the SAM team has brought the truck to fire departments and trade shows in Ontario, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and Michigan. They will continue on the road through the fall.
