Rescue Pumper

Equipped For Every Situation. 


When Pierce designs a rescue pumper, every feature, every square foot of space, has to help you do your job better. 

That’s why our rescue pumpers offer full-depth compartments over the entire height of the compartment. Because we rely on strength rather than bulk, we can provide bigger storage spaces and create custom compartment sizes, each with up to 800 pounds of carrying capacity. And a multitude of storage options lets you get your equipment without skipping a beat.
