Pierce Manufacturing is recalling 114 model year 2015-2016 Arrow XT, Enforcer, Impel, Quantum, Saber, and Velocity emergency vehicles equipped with pumps to provide pressurized water to aid in fighting fires.

These pumps have six-inch intake strainers that may have been improperly soldered during production and, as a result, the strainers may come apart during use. This would allow parts of the strainer and debris to enter the pump, possibly damaging the pump and reducing firefighting effectiveness.

Pierce will notify owners to check the strainer for missing solder at the joints. Any strainers missing solder will be replaced free of charge.

The recall began on June 16, 2016.

For more information, owners may contact Pierce customer service at (888) 974-3723 or Hale Products Customer Service Center at (800) 533-3569.
