    In Virginia, the City of Hampton has a Velocity RMRP on order, and Stafford County has a Velocity pumper on order for Falmouth, Company 1.

    The question is, when the heck are we going to get a picture of one that ISN'T black!!! IMO, pretty bad idea on pierce's part to paint a new chassis black.

    Singer Associates had a red-over-white one on display at the Virginia Fire Chief's Association expo in February. I must be one of the few that likes the black paint on the premier one, but the red-and-white one looked nice also...

    Default I think it is a different velocity.

    I went back and looked at photos of the black Velocity and noted several differences. The white over red Velocity has a different light bar, front suction and a Kusmal charge meter above the front tire.

    Either way I agree, It's sweet in red!

    Maybe they will have a red one at FDIC.

    Post Dash,Enforcer, Lance ?????

    Is Pierce mfg done taking orders for the Dash , Lance , Enforcer chasis cab, can you only order the new " Velocity " & " Impel " at this time. One of the fire districts in our township will be ordering a new Saber rescue within the next few weeks costing $ 390,000 .

    I have heard the well has pretty much run dry on the 06 engines, so has orders on those chassis'. A dept. close to my area was trying to get a Dash ordered, last week I believe, and didn't get it done. I can't say for sure all the 06' motors are gone, however nothing to fit their application was available. Looks like if you want a Saber, you better snag up one of the demos if they are even still available. Good Luck.

    As far as I can tell the new mirrors stick out less than conventional ones.

    One can probably assume that Pierce considered that before adding them. Also--think about oncoming traffic, if they were a threat to oncoming vehicles, they wouldn't be there--I hope. I know Rosenbauer does this too.

    I was talking to one of the fire commissioners from the department last week and he said that Pierce bid the Saber chassis in there specs, maybe they will sub for a " IMPEL " chassis with a 425 hp Cummins motor ?

    How long ago was the bid spec put out, that could have something to do with it? And that possibility does exist that some of the smaller hp motors still be available, I just know whatever HP range the dept. in my area was searching for was no longer available in the 06 models. My dealer is flying in and picking me up in an hour and were off to Pierce, I'll ask and see what I can find out.
