The Frankenlust Fire Department in the USA were glad they had a Polybilt fire tender when the vehicle rolled over on a slushy road. The peripherals were damaged, but the body (and the fire crew) were virtually unscathed.
UK fire services also like the impact resistance of Polybilt:
“In a recent accident involving two fire tenders there was far less damage than we would have seen with aluminium bodies. And the vehicles were back on the run in days rather than weeks.”
