Pierce Manufacturing has delivered five Enforcer™ pumpers and an Ascendant® 107’ Aerial Ladder to the City of Mobile, Alabama Fire and Rescue Department. The delivery represents the first Pierce apparatus to be put into service for the department.

APPLETON, Wis. (December 4, 2018) – Pierce Manufacturing Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, has delivered five Pierce® Enforcer pumpers and an Ascendant® 107’ Aerial Ladder to the City of Mobile, Alabama Fire and Rescue Department. The delivery represents the first Pierce apparatus to be put into service for the department.

Mark Sealy is Fire Chief for the City of Mobile Fire and Rescue Department. “As our fleet began to age, we understood the critical need to put apparatus into service that could run everywhere from compact downtown areas, protected ports, and rural West Mobile,” said Chief Sealy. “The most remarkable element of designing our trucks from the ground up was the quality incorporated into every feature from the hinges and doors, to the user-friendly design that addressed all of our department’s needs.”

With a number of fire stations built in the early 1900’s and serving a community at heightened risk for tropical storms, the City of Mobile Fire and Rescue Department customized the engines to be compact apparatus with a short wheelbase, allowing for greater maneuverability to fit into tight stations without sacrificing performance. Other features include high-visibility scene lighting,
TAK-4® Independent Front Suspension, 500 gallon water tank, Waterous 2000 gpm Pump, and more.  

“It’s clear the City of Mobile Fire and Rescue Department is committed to providing the highest level of service and safety, and our team is proud to supply these dedicated first responders with quality apparatus that allow them to focus on the lifesaving tasks they face each day,” said Jeff Kuntz, owner of Emergency Equipment Professionals. “It was an honor to be chosen to assist with an order of such significance, and we look forward to continuing our partnership to help meet the department’s needs into the future.”

The City of Mobile Fire and Rescue Department covers 210 square miles and serves 244,376 citizens from 20 fire stations. As the largest municipality on the Gulf Coast, the city features urban and rural neighborhoods, mid- to high-rise office buildings, and two airports.

The five Pierce pumpers and the Ascendant 107’ Aerial Ladder are built on the Enforcer custom chassis. For a comprehensive review of Pierce pumpers, Enforcer custom chassis, and Ascendant aerials, visit www.piercemfg.com for complete specs, video, and images.
