REDFORD, MICH. – Jan. 25, 2008 – Sterling Truck Corporation today announced that it has added self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) seats as a factory-installed option on its Acterra® Crew Cab trucks. Ideal for fire and emergency applications, these seats allow responders to wear an oxygen tank apparatus while safely buckled in.
“While responding to a call, emergency personnel need to wear a seatbelt, quickly put on a SCBA en route, and easily exit the cab when arriving on the scene. These seats enable them to do all of those things safely,” said Ann Demitruk, director of marketing for Sterling Truck Corporation. “Plus, when SCBA seats are installed in a Sterling truck, responders know they have dependable, comfortable transportation that’s ready to go whenever that alarm sounds.”
The Seats, Inc., SCBA seats are available in a high-back suspension model or non-suspension passenger seat with under-seat storage. For more information, find the Sterling dealer nearest you by visiting www.SterlingTrucks.com or by calling 800-STL-HELP.
