Rosenhayn Fire Department Heavy Rescue

We featured a bunch of SVI built rescues on this site for a couple of reasons. First off, the folks at SVI build well laid out rescues trucks that can provide great ideas for anyone that is building a new truck. Perhaps the best reason?  SVI provides great information on their website about each truck with tons of photos. Just in case you are not fimilar with SVI Trucks, they are a U.S.-based company located in Fort Collins, CO that specializes in crafting custom emergency vehicles for agencies around the world.
