Pierce Manufacturing has issued a recall of certain model year 2015-2016 Pumper and Tanker fire trucks, due to missing marker lights.

The affected vehicles were modified to be equipped with extended bumpers, requiring the vehicles to have additional side markers lights due to the new vehicle length. Since the vehicles do not have the necessary amount of side marker lights, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Assoc. Equipment."

If the affected vehicle is missing any of the necessary side marker lights, it may cause reduced visibility to other drivers and increase the risk of a crash.

Pierce has notified the owners, and dealers will install the required side marker lamps, free of charge. The recall began on August 15, 2016.

For further information regarding the recall, owners may contact Pierce customer service at (888) 974-3723, reference number 74B275.
