The Cleveland Fire Department unveiled its newest rescue apparatus during Monday's city council meeting.

The Pierce heavy rescue vehicle will cary specialized gear for all types of emergencies including structural collapse, trench collapse, swift water rescue, rope rescues and more. The apparatus will be operated by personnel with specialized training for unique situations.

Fire Chief Ron Harrison said the vehicle has more storage capacity than other fire and rescue vehicles.

"Everything for us is about time," Chief Harrison said. "We want the right personnel with the proper equipment responding in a timely manner."

Having the right equipment on this one apparatus meets that goal.

The apparatus has other unique features too. A light tower can be raised from the truck to illuminate scenes after dark. That features is also a time saver in an emergency, Chief Harrison said. It saves time that is needed for bringing portable lights to the scene.

The department took possession of the vehicle a week earlier. It will take two or three weeks to outfit this newest tool to save lives and property, Chief Harrison said.
