The two Pierce rescues for Pittsburgh EMS each featurse a three-door cab with a passenger-side compartment accessible from the outside that holds EMS equipment.
The 2007 heavy rescue, designated Rescue 2, that Pittsburgh EMS purchased from Pierce turned 198,000 miles before its retirement.
Each of the two new heavy rescues built by Pierce is powered by a Detroit DD13 diesel engine and an Allison 4000 EVS-PR automatic transmission with transmission retarder.
The Pittsburgh EMS heavy rescues have Onan PTO-driven 30-kilowatt generators, Will-Burt LED light towers, Whelen LED warning and M9 scene lights, and HiViz LED brow lights.
