The Indianapolis Fire Department (IFD) has placed five Pierce Saber pumpers and two Arrow XT 75-foot heavy-duty aerial ladders into service, joining 40 Pierce custom apparatus now serving at IFD, according to a release from Pierce Manufacturing.

The Pierce Saber features a raised roof transition line moved forward to create a “cathedral ceiling” effect. Each of the five identical pumpers is equipped with a 450-hp engine, a 2000 GPM single-stage pump, a 500-gallon water tank, a Control Zone pump panel, and a full complement of ground ladders.

The pair of Arrow XT 75-foot heavy-duty steel aerial ladders is each equipped with a 450-hp engine and is built on a single rear axle chassis configuration. The cab features a raised and notched roof, a forward-facing EMS compartment, and seating for six firefighters. The storage compartments include dual LED strip lighting and a combination of adjustable shelves and slide-out trays. The three-section aerial device features remote tip controls, a two-way intercom, and blue LED lighting.
