SVI Trucks recently added two new apparatus dealers to its dealer network--1st Out Specialty Vehicles & Equipment, located in Moon Township, Pennsylvania, and Louisiana Emergency Equipment, located in Youngsville, Louisiana.
Loveland (CO) Fire Department pumper. Spartan Gladiator cab and chassis; Cummins L9 450-hp engine; Waterous CMUC20 1,500-gpm pump.
St. Louis (MO) Fire Department heavy rescue units (2). Spartan Gladiator cabs and chassis; Cummins ISX12 500-hp engines; 26-foot walk-in rescue bodies with forward walk-in design.
The walk-in hazmat lab features a spacious, heavy-duty slide-out with stainless-steel workbench, Flow Sciences interior lab containment enclosure, and WeatherPak TRx2 Weather System.
The engine will include SVI Trucks’ first-ever single-compartment front bumper with 26-inch extension, designed to accommodate Boulder’s battery-operated eDRAULIC® extrication equipment.
The San Diego (CA) Fire Authority recently took delivery and began training on an urban search and rescue (USAR) heavy rescue built by SVI Trucks that’s manned by CAL FIRE firefighters.
Cal Fire/San Diego County Fire USAR rescue. Spartan Metro Star cab and chassis; Cummins ISL9 450-hp engine; Command Light CL series light tower; 20-foot walk-around rescue body.
San Marcos (TX) Fire Department 22-foot walk-around rescue. Spartan Metro Star cab and chassis; Cummins ISL 450-hp engine.
Houston (TX) Fire Department rescue. Spartan Gladiator cab and chassis; Cummins ISX 500-hp engine; 22-foot walk-around rescue body; walk-in command center.
It took about three years from concept to delivery, but Vancouver (Canada) Fire & Rescue Services persevered with the project to get a technical rescue truck built that could handle a combination of several rescue disciplines by itself.
