Arlington Heights Fire Department Equipment Vehicles


LDV recently completed two specialty equipment vehicles for the Arlington Heights Fire Department. The vehicles are built on a 2019 Ford F-550 gasoline XL crew cab, 4x4 chassis with a custom designed and fabricated aluminum box. The vehicles have various compartments integrated into the body with slide-out tool trays, box pan shelves and equipment storage. Pull-out steps on both the streetside and curbside of each vehicle were included. The rear bumper is custom fabricated aluminum with Diamondback serrated plank tread surface. A flip-down rear step was also included.

The interior compartments are coated with durable Zolatone™ finish and areas that will see more heavy use were coated with Line-X™ durable coating. LED Strip lighting was included inside compartments for night operations. On the front of each vehicle is a Warn™ M12-S Heavyweight winch capable of pulling 12,000lbs. mounted at the front bumper.

A Zone Defense color backup camera system was installed to ease parking maneuvers. A complete emergency lighting and siren package was also installed including LED scene lighting. The vehicles also have LED pole lights. The front passenger area includes a custom fabricated center console to house electrical distribution equipment and controls. We also installed the customer-supplied communications radios with magnetic radio microphones for mobile two-way radios.

The vehicles are finished with black and red paint to match the Arlington Heights FD fleet with computer-generated simulated gold leaf lettering.

"I was very satisfied with the whole experience and process. I believe that the sales personnel and technicians are very knowledgeable and have years of institutional knowledge that shows in the execution of the unit. My questions were all ways answered immediately and if there was any reach back for additional confirmation it was always followed up with a phone call and email. The open lines of communication provided both of us the full awareness of where we were in the build process and helped eliminate unnecessary delays or unanswered questions. Everyone I encountered during my visits were always smiling and happy while working, which was great to see and experience. This is reflected in the finished product that was noticed by my staff and all others that have visited to see the new addition to our fleet."

The best feature of the vehicle is the flush floor slide-out in the front of the vehicle. It provides a very functional work area and always receives favorable comments.
