Special Considerations in Body Repair
While some auto body restoration skills transfer easily from one vehicle to another, some special considerations are unique to fire truck and ambulance repair. Surprising to some, one of the biggest enemies of the emergency response vehicle body isn’t collision damage. It’s rust! That occurs because the fire truck or ambulance responds even when the weather isn’t favorable. When the roads are salted to reduce the risk of slippage, the heavy-duty first responder vehicle gets coated like a pretzel. Over time, this fosters the potential for rust. Therefore, the body repair facility you choose should be adept at metal fabrication and welding. Additionally, fire trucks and ambulances have far more and different lighting than your passenger car to enable visual alerts. They’re equipped with audible warnings such as enhanced horns and sirens, too. Therefore, the restoration provider should have expertise in electrical systems and related public alert components. Finally, fire trucks and ambulances are equipped with equipment specific to the tasks they perform. These include pumps, lifts, pneumatic equipment, etc., so a body shop should be able to ensure the functionality of these components in order to be a suitable facility.
