The 70 emergency response apparatus will be transferred from the Port of Baltimore to Cuerpo General de Bomberos Voluntarios del Peru (the General Body of the Peruvian Volunteer Fire Department) in Lima, Peru.

The first 10 units have been transferred to the Port of Baltimore from Spartan's facility in Charlotte, MI and will be loaded on ships for a June 2014 departure. All 70 units will be shipped on a Ro-Ro (Roll-on/Roll-off) basis under an agreement with NYK Line on Spartans' behalf.
