Pierce Quantum Heavy Technical Rescue Fire Apparatus

Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue chose to have Pierce Manufacturing build its heavy technical rescue on a tandem axle chassis in order to handle the weight of all the equipment it needed to carry because of the large distances it has to cover in responding within the whole district.
