Personnel, Equipment, or Both?

Walk-In Rescue Apparatus – A walk-in rescue vehicle is suited for departments that require space for the equipment storage, as well as their personnel. The body interior can be customized for personnel transport, rehab, or incident command operations by selecting from a variety of body and compartment sizes to meet your exact specifications.

Non-Walk-In Rescue Apparatus – Never leave a tool behind with a heavy-duty rescue from Pierce. These units are designed for maximum, customized equipment storage. Available in aluminum or stainless steel, the lower body section offers additional storage space, and so does the roof which can accommodate storage boxes for unique and less commonly used items. Available on the 22’ Non-Walk-In-Rescue, you can also get Pierce’s exclusive PUC design to add in a pump and keep all the storage space you need.

Combination Rescue Apparatus – Get the best of both worlds with a Pierce Combination Heavy-Duty Rescue. The walk-in area can be laid out for personnel transport, rehab, or mobile command operations while non-walk in area focuses on superior equipment storage.
