Southbury, CT Fire Department Velocity® PUC™ Pumper

Take a look at Southbury’s new fire engine

Pierce Mfg. – Take a walk with J.D. McAulay around the Southbury Fire Department’s #Velocity #Pumper. The department wants to carry as much water as they can to adapt to the commercial and residential terrain. The PUC design was chosen for many reasons including increasing storage and the crosslays. The hose location is key being on the side of the pump panel, instead of under it.
