St. Louis, MO Fire Department Walk-in Heavy Rescue 1

The St. Louis Fire Department had a pair of Walk-in Heavy Rescue trucks built on Spartan Gladiator LFD chassis with a 24″ raised roof housing a Cummins ISX 12 500 horse power engine.

These trucks feature a forward walk-in design that is fit with custom interior cabinetry. The truck is also fitted with an alternative power unit to make it more efficient.  The compartment areas are specialized for equipment mounting designed custom by SVI including a compartment made specifically for Paratech Shoring Equipment. The truck also features a CL Series Command Light Tower with a Whelen Mini-Legacy Light Bar fit at the top.
