Ferrara Fire Trucks
The September 11th tragedy in New York City raised both public awareness and interest in many things. Not the least of which was the role of fire fighters and fire-fighting apparatus. Firemen were rightfully heralded as heroes.
The public relies on their local fire department in times of emergency. It is assumed that they will arrive promptly with the equipment necessary to do the job. This means that not only the human element but the fire trucks, pumpers, tankers and other vehicles must be top-notch. For many departments, this is difficult to accomplish with budgets that are so strained that there is little funding for new apparatus.
One fire-fighting equipment manufacturer that strives hard to help departments meet the needs of their communities, while getting high return on their apparatus investment dollar, is Ferrara. Recognized as an industry leader with a commitment to the profession, Ferrara produced a new fire engine, built to spec in 60 days, to replace one lost during 9-11. During Hurricane Katrina, the New York Fire Department sent equipment to Louisiana and one of those fire trucks was that same Ferrara engine.
With an extensive line of pumpers, tankers, aerials and specialty vehicles, such as Hazmat and bomb squad units, Ferrara Fire is relied upon by fire departments in over 30 major cities and half a dozen countries. Their innovations in fire truck manufacturing have improved efficiency and safety. With advancements like Complete Airbag Protection (which ensures the safety of all passengers, not just the front occupants), the Ferrara fire truck safeguards the lives of those who are dedicated to protecting ours.
