Product Highlights

Custom Chassis Featured Highlights

TAK-4® Independent Suspension

These systems provide many advantages over other suspension systems. The components designed into these systems:

•    Allow you to maintain the feel of the road
•    Provide you a superb ride quality
•    Provide you with the confidence that you are in control of the vehicle and the road



Command Zone™

The new Command Zone makes it easier for firefighters to maintain their vehicles, prepare for calls and monitor performance on the scene. It also delivers the industry’s first prognostic capabilities to keep departments on the cutting edge.

Occupant Safety Systems

Traffic deaths are the second leading cause of firefighter death, and 60% of all traffic deaths involve a roll. Most manufacturers offer safety “widgets” or “features.” We believe safety should be more than that. At Pierce, safety is our entire approach to designing the apparatus. It is a system. It goes into every detail.


E-Coat Corrosion Protection

Corrosion has always been a concern for the entire fire industry within certain regions. The increased popularity of liquid de-icing agents along with traditional road salts has increased the risk of chassis related corrosion. To combat corrosion, Pierce Manufacturing is the first and only fire apparatus manufacturer to incorporate an electrophoretic coating (E-coat) process into our custom apparatus.
