Truck Spotlight: Responder Trucks

Is your fire department looking for a new truck, but you want it to pull double duty? While you’re not necessarily looking to replace your fire tanker truck, you might be looking for something else. Maybe a truck to haul equipment and personnel that is easier to maneuver than big trucks. The Responder truck is the perfect option for your department. We’ll discuss options that the Responder truck can be customized with, and why it could be a great fit.

When you need to transport equipment and personnel and you don’t need the fire tanker truck to do it, you want a small and easy to maneuver option that has a place for everything you need. This is where Osco Tank & Truck Sales steps in. Our custom built Responder trucks are designed to give your department the best of both worlds. An extremely versatile responder large enough to carry equipment and personnel yet small enough to maneuver efficiently.

Custom Design and Build

Whether you need an EMS/ALS vehicle or chiefs response unit, we will custom design your unit. This will make sure every bag, device and piece of equipment used to do your job will have a custom storage solution. This ensures that everything you need is easily accessible and fits your departments’ needs. With varying body sizes we can make your specific needs the top priority. We will work with you to make a plan for what needs to go on your Responder truck and how we can make it happen.

Additionally, all of our custom-built trucks with Osco Certified chassis will receive new paint on the cab and chassis, new tires, new brakes, new powertrain fluids and filters, new bumper

These units are also built with versatility, maximizing every inch of space available and allowing you to carry the rescue equipment required to do your job.
