Crimson Fire, Inc. displayed new vehicles and product innovations at the fire-rescue industry's biggest trade show FDIC 2010.

Crimson Fire, which is a subsidiary of Spartan Motors, Inc., showcased two new vehicles, an innovative new hose loader and other apparatus from its custom line of pumpers, tankers, aerials and other emergency-response vehicles at Booth 2433 during the Fire Department Instructors Conference in Indianapolis, Ind.

"At Crimson Fire, innovation is one of our cornerstones," said Kevin Crump, president of Crimson Fire. "We are very pleased to introduce several new vehicles and new technology advances at FDIC as we have done for the last seven years. Our goal is to develop solutions that allow emergency-response workers to be safe and effective in their profession. We feel that we have a great line up at this year's show."

The Crimson Fire booth featured:

  • Transformer®, a new pumper with integrated pump that eliminates the traditional pump house by locating the pump and manifold system just forward of the rear wheels. This unique design offers improved performance and handling, as well as a significant increase in storage space.
  • A production version of the new First Response All Callsvehicle, a unique multi-purpose vehicle that gives departments broad fire-fighting, emergency-response and command capabilities.
  • A 75-foot Star® series aerial ladder with a patent-pending hose loader, a new product innovation from Crimson Fire. The hose loader will allow firefighters to repack their hosebed without having to climb on the vehicle.
  • A Legend® series rescue pumper with a dual-arm ladder rack.
  • A 100-foot Star series aerial rear-mount platform, featuring new and improved aerial controls that eliminate the need for the "deadman" switch in the aerial bucket. This aerial will also feature independent front suspension from Spartan Chassis.
  • A Star series pumper from the City of Dallas Fire Department that features a rescue pumper design, which is a first for the department.
