Get a Look at the Madison Fire Department’s Electric Fire Truck

The Volterra™ Pumper has been serving the east side of Madison since earlier this year.

If you're traveling on Madison’s east side, you might see a newer, quieter and more sustainable addition to the Madison Fire Department's (MFD) fleet—the new Volterra™ Electric Pumper from Pierce Manufacturing in Appleton.

Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) partnered with the fire department and added a DC fast charger at Fire Station 8 to keep the new truck charged and ready to serve our community during emergencies.
Electrifying transportation is key to carbon reductions and greater sustainability. Transportation accounts for almost 30 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States—it is the leading contributor of greenhouse gas emissions.
