Nontypical Pump Panel Locations

Stop in any fire department and ask about preferences for pump panel location, and you’re likely to get involved in a lively discussion. More on Pump Panel locations at: Nontypical Pump Panel Locations Reflect Specific Needs.

The most typical pump panel locations are midmount pump panels on the driver’s side followed by top-mount panels, but then there are those in more unusual locations like the upper rear-mount location and the outboard or curbside pump panel for rear-mount pumps. And, of course, there’s always the front-mount pump panel, which has almost disappeared from general use.
