Versatile fire and rescue vehicle
The Changeable Response Unit enables fire and rescue departments to customize a single pickup truck to do the work of several specialty vehicles through an interchangeable system of dedicated modules. The units feature a flatbed or box-body system, which the department can configure for specific response applications, such as water rescue or HAZMAT incidents. The hook-and-lift system loads and unloads different units, and all systems are operational from inside the cab. Units can be attached or detached in less than two minutes. The loader is engineered to fit ¾-ton and larger single- or dual-axle configuration vehicles. When not being used for a specific emergency, the vehicle can be returned to its original function with an available skid or platform. Heavy-duty casters allow the units to roll across the apparatus bay for staging and storage. Option packages for the box bodies include transverse trays, shelves and electrical routings for power supplies and shoreline outlets.
