More About Emergency One Fire Apparatus 1974-2007 by Kent Parrish
 
 
 
Overview
From an inconspicuous beginning in Ocala, Florida, in 1974, Emergency One rocketed to the front rank of the U.S. fire apparatus industry in less than a decade. E-One s astonishing rise stunned its long-established competitors and changed the way fire apparatus was constructed in the United States. E-One s success was achieved by using pre-built interchangeable modules installed on any commercial truck chassis, and a complete fire truck could be ready in 30-60 days instead of the six months to a year needed by its competitors. E-One's quick upstart allowed them to introduce their own custom cab-forward chassis in 1984, the Hurricane, which was also highly successful. Today, E-One remains the industry s second-largest player, behind rival Pierce. This book is packed full of colorful photos, and each chapter on various models covers the earliest rigs to today s beauties."
