Pierce forever changes the unique way you fight fire, making it easy to customize apparatus on a commercial
chassis to fit your department’s needs.
Commercial pumpers:
Chassis that meet Pierce standards.
An unwavering commitment to quality, innovation and safety has made us selective about our suppliers.
So we only build on commercial chassis from four leading manufacturers: Freightliner, Kenworth, Peterbilt and International.

Foam systems maximize knockout.
Pierce® foam systems help you perform way beyond the
capabilities of water alone. That’s why we’ve developed and
delivered more of them than anybody else.
The Pierce Husky™ foam system delivers serious knockdown
capacity without drawing the serious amps that needlessly strain
your rig’s electrical systems. The Husky system handles foam
viscosities for Class A and B fires, from Alcohol Resistant
AFFF to Class A foams. Plus all Husky foam systems allow for
auxiliary foam pickup so you can run multiple types of foam at
a moment’s notice. It's easy to operate and automatically adjust
foam output to the proper percentage.
