Rapid Intervention Vehicle

The turret attached to the front bumper of the P-34 Rapid Intervention Vehicle, a firefighting vehicle, uses new ultra high pressure firefighting technology, is one of the assets Selfridge Air National Guard Base will use for emergency response. The RIV discharges 100 gallons of firefighting agent per minute at 1,350 pounds per square inch at a range of 100 feet, and performs 3.5 times more effectively than conventional firerfighting vehicles.
