The Jack Daniel's Fire Brigade consists of 34 members and operates three fire stations. The brigade provides automatic aid for Lynchburg area schools, nursing homes and the public square, as well as mutual aid response with outlying communities.
The apparatus is built on the renowned Pierce Velocity chassis with a 600 horsepower engine. It sports six 2.5-inch rear discharges that interface with an elaborate standpipe system installed throughout the Jack Daniel distillery, bottling facilities, and warehousing area. The vehicle’s firefighting system also features a 3,000-gpm pump, a Husky® 300 foam system, a 2,000-gallon foam tank, a 500-gallon water tank, a 2,000-pound dry chemical system, and an eight-inch Hydro-Chem deluge gun and nozzle.
