Walk around San Antonio Fire Department’s Velocity® Non-Walk-In HDR with Fire Engineer William Weeks and Technical Rescue Team Member Christopher Young. The department chose an extended front bumper, allowing them to store a 15,000 lb. winch that the rescue team can use on scene. Throughout the apparatus storage each discipline has its own compartment ensuring that every team member knows where equipment is. Hatch compartments provide the department space to carry wood and other supplies to scenes involving structural impairment.
