Additional LED lighting was added to the roof, door handles, and underside of the apparatus for increased safety during calls at night and on busy roadways. The department added a Coleman air conditioner to combat the California heat, which will run continuously to keep the equipment in the cab cool. The drop-down storage compartment on the front bumper will be used for easy hose deployment. The apparatus is equipped with hatch compartments for additional storage.
