ABSTRACT
The article provides a comparison between the top-mounted panel-designed fire trucks over the side-mount pump models. During firefighting operations, the pumper operator is often placed dangerously close to passing traffic when using the side-mount panel model, while with the top-mount model, the operator stands safely off the ground on an elevated walkway or floor surface. Top-mount panels provides safety, visibility, efficiency, health and comfort, as compared to the traditional model.
