Summary:
      Pierce Manufacturing "Pierce" is recalling certain 2019-2020 Arrow XT, Enforcer, Impel, and Velocity Emergency fire emergency vehicles built with a 107 foot or 110 foot aerial device.

If no cracks or corrosion is found, the tube will receive a treatment to prevent rust corrosion. If cracks or corrosion is present, the upper mid section of the device will be replaced. All services will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 2020. Owners may contact Pierce customer service at 1-888-974-3723.
