BODY DESIGN
The importance of public safety associated with emergency vehicles requires that the construction of this vehicle
meet the following specifications. These specifications are written to establish the minimum level of quality and
design. All Bidders shall be required to meet these minimum requirements.
It is the intent of these specifications to fully describe the requirements for a custom built emergency type vehicle.
In order to extend the expected service life of this vehicle, the body module shall be removable from the chassis
frame and be capable of being installed on a new chassis.
The sheet metal material requirements, including alloy and material thickness, throughout the specifications are
considered to be a minimum. Since such materials are available to all Manufacturers, the material specifications
shall be strictly adhered to. NO EXCEPTIONS
The fabrication of the body shall be formed sheet metal. Formed components shall allow the Ölds Fire
Department to have the body repaired locally in the case where any object has struck the body and caused
damage. The use of proprietary extrusions will prevent the Ölds Fire Department from such repair and shall NOT
be used. NO EXCEPTIONS
Following construction of the subframe, which supports the apparatus body, the sheet metal portion of the body
shall be built directly on the subframe. The joining of the subframe and body shall be of a welded integral
construction. NO EXCEPTIONS
