The Ford Raptor makes an awesome fire truck

Illustration for article titled The Ford Raptor makes an awesome fire truck

Everything that makes the Ford Raptor an awesome truck in civilian hands (go-anywhere off-road prowess, speed, truck capabilities) makes it even better when in the command of first-responders.


San Diego County Fire Department Battalion 5 utilizes this particularly well-equipped Raptor as a quick response fire fighter for rural areas that require a 4x4. It's also used for aiding those injured in the Ocotillo Wells area while in off-road vehicles. And the best part? There's a GoPro camera system in it.


How about a demonstration video?
