Severe Serviceā„¢

Originally designed for large fleets in extreme duty use conditions, the Severe Service™ is now available for the fire departments coast to coast. The Severe Service™ concept is about a well-planned design created to accommodate the needs of the operators, crews and mechanics and have a rig that’s ready to respond, every time. This is THE extreme-duty chassis.

Conquer Familiar Terrain with North Tahoe Fire Protection District "Thirty feet of avalanche-inducing snow in a single season isn't uncommon for us. Neither are dozens of wildfires that threaten homes. That's why our engines need to be Tahoe tough. They're built to perform off-road and help us stay on-task, in every emergency. For our departments, serving people is a time-honored mission."
– Michael Schwartz | Fire Chief, North Tahoe Fire Protection District.
Santa Barbara | Our Rig Is Our Toolbox "We have very diverse terrain in Santa Barbara and we respond to equally diverse emergencies. With KME we can optimize every compartment so we can keep out tools organized and systematically packed, so we always have everything we need."
– Mike Klusyk, Captain | Santa Barbara Fire Department
