Pierce PUC multi-purpose reponse vehicle

Product Profile

The Pierce® PUC is an industry-changing multi-purpose response vehicle.* It’s the first modern tilt cab emergency response vehicle designed specifically for the response duties of today’s fire services. The PUC eliminates the pumphouse so you can build your apparatus around your needs and not the pump. It minimizes the vehicular space used for fire suppression and maximizes the space for tools and equipment. Yet it still provides big pump, foam and CAFS capabilities for when they’re needed. PUC eliminates the need to build the entire body around the pump and the pumphouse. And it’s the first apparatus that offers the most complete single-source build, from the chassis and body, right down to the pump. PUC is available with all Pierce custom chassis.
