Napa Valley County to take delivery on hazmat truck
Napa's hazmat vehicle features SVI trucks' go-to hazmat design.
FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The Napa Valley County Fire Department has taken delivery on a new hazmat truck, featuring SVI Trucks’ tried-and-true hazmat design — a partial walk-in unit with lab area and slideout tech station. The unit will go into service immediately and then make an appearance Sept. 4-7 at the 29th Annual Continuing Challenge HAZMAT Workshop in Sacramento, Calif.
The unit features SVI Trucks’ proven walk-in hazmat design, the same go-to design Salinas, Calif., put into service last year after showcasing the vehicle at the 2017 HAZMAT Challenge. SVI’s latest hazmat truck features an aluminum body mounted on a Spartan Gladiator MFD chassis with a 450HP Cummins L9 engine and Allison EVS 3000 transmission. The cab command center features a 10-inch raised roof, L-shaped desk with radio console and Middle Atlantic 24U Data Rack. The walk-in hazmat lab features a spacious, heavy-duty slideout with stainless-steel workbench, Flow Sciences interior lab containment enclosure and WeatherPak TRx2 Weather System.
Meanwhile, the Napa Valley hazmat exterior is equipped with a Zico Nitrogen bottle lift, a Bosch Command Camera System on 40-foot mast, OnScene Solutions heavy-duty cargo slides with LED compartment lights and a Command Light CL611A-HQ light tower with Whelen Pioneer+ LED scene lights..
“Napa Valley’s planning committee was outstanding to work with,” said Blair Schrock, SVI Trucks’ Western Sales Manager. “They were very engaged with this truck and were able to pinpoint exactly what customizations their crew needed. You’ll definitely want to see this unit at the HAZMAT Challenge.”
