The best idea you ever had.

VELOCITY BROCHURE

Overview

We asked firefighters to envision the ideal fire truck. Then we listened carefully. They told us about practical things that would make a truck easier to use. They identified space, storage, safety, maintenance, and performance improvements. We wrote it all down and turned a team of engineers loose with one goal: Make it happen.
 
More headroom, legroom, and floor space. Unobstructed visibility of the road, traffic, and pedestrians. Fast service and legendary Pierce safety. In every way, Velocity advances the way firefighters prepare and perform.

  • The forward roof design offers a cathedral-feel ceiling with increased frontal visibility & more configurable space.

Ergonomics

  • Wide cab doors make entry safer & exit quicker for firefighters. 

  • Gauges & switches are within easy reach of the driver without interrupting lines of sight.

Serviceability
