Velocity

We listened carefully as firefighters from across the country told us about practical things that would make the ideal fire truck.  They identified safety, maintenance and performance improvements. We wrote it all down and then turned a team of engineers loose with one goal: make it happen. We take credit only for building it. All of the ideas came straight from firefighters.
