Spartan ERV has issued a recall for several aerial fire apparatus vehicles over a possible property damage or even injury risk.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported that these vehicles were equipped with welded rod eyes that may have not been properly heat treated during the assembly.

If these components are not properly heat-treated, it may break or separate, which could cause cylinders to fail and cause the aerial lift to retract unexpectedly, posing an injury or property damage risk to users and people nearby.
