Pierce Heavy Rescue Walkaround

 

Since Tualatin Valley’s technical rescue truck responds to numerous calls throughout the district, the department wanted a vehicle that could haul all the technical rescue equipment needed but not compromise its maneuverability. Chad Liggett, Tualatin Valley’s fleet operations manager, says the department’s primary goal “was to build a vehicle with the physical size required to haul all the equipment we need but still retain the maneuverability to get around on our roadways.” In addition, he says, “We also wanted to see if we could do more than one thing with a single vehicle.”
