The Lexington County (SC) Fire Service uses this SUTPHEN quint to respond to all types of alarms including first responder calls, says Deputy Chief of Administration David Fulmer. The unit is housed with an advanced life support unit and rides as a quint. Its mid-mount design affords a low travel height and center of gravity. It has greater maneuverability and access to tight areas, and the single-scissor outriggers provide quick setup and durability.

The Humboldt Township (MI) Fire Department specified four-wheel-drive for its MIDWEST pumper/tanker because the department averages 120 inches of snow yearly, says Deputy Chief Dillon Vial. The department is in Michigan’s upper peninsula, with mostly rural terrain and very few hydrants. The large water tank is used for a strong initial attack while awaiting shuttle apparatus.
