Sissonville, WV

Model DF0973P

Specifications

Sissonville, nestled in the mountains north of Charleston, required an all-in-one vehicle that could be used for routine rescue responses, service support and with fire suppression capabilities to handle calls during periods when first responder manpower to staff multiple trucks was limited. They selected Hackney because of its ability to custom design a vehicle to handle all these requirements, provide storage capacity in excess of other choices and stay within a set budget.

The 17.5-ft body is mounted on an International 4400 using drop/pinch frame technology that provides 40” of compartment depth from floor to ceiling in the four forward compartments. This highly maneuverable apparatus exceeded all their requirements and expectations.
