PIERCE MANUFACTURING has introduced a Type 1 wildland/urban interface firefighting vehicle that incorporates the patented Pierce Ultimate Configuration (PUC) technology. The new apparatus offers enhanced emergency response performance in regions where housing is adjacent to undeveloped wildland vegetation. The apparatus features a wheelbase as short as 162 inches as well as high chassis angle of approach and departure for improved maneuverability, and all-wheel drive is available for off-road performance. The vehicle offers 200 cubic feet of storage space for rescue and EMS equipment. The PUC wildland/urban interface vehicle is available on all Pierce custom chassis.
