Video: Charlotte (NC) Heavy Rescue Walk-Around Video


The Charlotte (NC) Fire Department needed an apparatus as versatile as the department’s duties when specing its two new heavy rescue units. Charlotte chose to build its two trucks on 25-foot SVI stainless-steel bodies, each mounted on a Spartan four-door chassis with a  600-hp Cummins X15 engine. These two trucks feature UNI DOT 6,000-psi storage, a Will-Burt Night Scan light tower, a Bauer BP25 25CFM 6,000-psi compressor, a Samsung  24″ LED smart TV, OnScene LED compartment lighting with cargo slides, and a rear compartment under the stair walkway with powered lift door.
