Emergency One, Inc. (E-One)


Emergency One Inc. (E-One), established in 1974, builds virtually every type of fire rescue vehicle required by fire departments, rescue/EMS squads, and airports--putting engineering in the business of saving lives. Products include commercial and custom pumpers, hazmats, command vehicles, aircraft rescue firefighting vehicles, and more. Guided tours of three of the company's five factories let visitors witness the creation of a brand-new, shiny red fire truck, from the frame to the water pumps. Children under age 6 are given only a Vehicle Delivery Center tour, which includes sitting in the cab of a fire truck with its lights and sirens.
