Video Walk-Around: Pierce Velocity 107-Foot Ascendant

Take a walk around the Westminster Fire-Rescue Department’s Velocity 107’ Ascendant ladder equipped with a PUC pump. Focusing on the clean cab concept, air packs will be mounted in a compartment outside of the cab. The department also went with seats that are easy to wipe down after responding to a call.

The quint is equipped with TAK4 T3 Independent Rear Suspension, creating a tighter turning radius for the narrow streets in Westminster, CO. Body compartments feature slide-out and pull-out peg boards for tool storage.
