If the crew doesn’t arrive on the scene safely, even more lives hang in the balance. At Spartan, we face reality head on with cabs that feature the most advanced safety provisions available in the market today.


Advanced Protection System®

The Spartan Advanced Protection System® (APS) is a set of features designed to keep firefighters. Vehicle crashes are the second leading cause of death among U.S. firefighters and with each passing year Spartan has strived to make our vehicles better, stronger and safer. This market-leading system includes:

    • Frontal Impact
    • Rollover Protection
    • Advanced Seat Belts
    • Reinforced Cab Structure
    • Electronic Stability Control
    • Advanced Climate Control System
    • 360° Camera

Frontal and side roll airbags give your apparatus the highest impact protection available.

Frontal Airbags
In the event of a frontal collision,  knee and steering wheel airbags deploy and protect against injuries resulting from hitting the instrument panel or other interior points of contact. The lower body is locked in place so the upper body can be slowed and protected by the steering wheel airbag.

Side Roll Airbags
When an unrecoverable rollover is detected, side airbags deploy and protects all occupants from rollovers with the most advanced side roll airbag protection system.

Advanced Seatbelts
Innovative seat belt systems pulls the occupant into the seat in the event of an impact or rollover using a pretensioner system that dramatically reduces restraint system injuries.
