Learn about Longview Fire Department’s Velocity PUC Pumper with Battalion Chief Jon-Eric Johnson. All the compartments are designed with ergonomics in mind, so equipment can be accessed quickly and easily. Rear facing seats help firefighters communicate while giving the driver increased visibility. The remote radio head also increases the driver’s communication. EMS compartments were placed in the back of the cab so gear can be accessed from inside and outside of the cab. The hose bed is placed as low as possible to be accessible and provides extra storage space.
