Sales Organization: Firematic Supply Company, Inc.

Take a walk around the Patchogue (NY) Fire Department’s newest member of their fleet, the velocity 100’ Heavy-Duty Ascendant tower. The body of the quint has nested ladder storage which is designed to accommodate 170’ of ground ladders. This midmount platform has a camera that spots the stabilizer locations before they exit the aerial platform, which is displayed on the Pierce Command Zone advanced electronics system. The department wanted to maximize storage as much as they could. To do so, they added a toolbox within a compartment for power tools, placed peg boards inside compartments and added an EMS storage compartment.
