Hummers have always been popular vehicles for emergency and rescue crews. GM is trying to keep that tradition alive with its most recent and affordable model — the Hummer H3. Here’s the breakdown:
Between October 1 and December 31, 2006, when an active member of the fire and rescue community – volunteer or career firefighter or emergency response personnel associated with a fire association – purchases or leases a new HUMMER H3, the vehicle will include the HUMMER First Responder package at no additional cost.
The HUMMER First Responder package includes the purchaser’s choice of either an emergency signal package from Whelen Engineering Inc. (whelen.com) or Federal Signal (federalsignal.com) valued at up to $2,500, or a black wraparound brushguard and lower grille-mounted off-road lights.
The first vehicle was displayed here in Dallas at the Fire-Rescue International 2006 show.
