E-ONE, a subsidiary of REV Group and manufacturer of fire apparatus, announced a five-year contract between the City of Chicago and E-ONE’s authorised dealer Fire Service, to provide multiple E-ONE apparatus including pumpers, aerials and platforms.
Chicago has 98 fire stations citywide with more than 140 apparatus in service today. This contract will enable the city to replace dated fire apparatus and continue providing the best class fire suppression and emergency demands for over 2.7 million citizens.
The contract allowed the city to examine a dealership and OEM who could manufacture fire trucks and equipment needed to compliment the city with all current NFPA codes and standards in the fire industry and to service the units as needed in the future.
“This important contract is replacing an aging fleet and equipment and we look forward to working together with the City of Chicago,” said Shawn Junker, Principal of Fire Service.
Jay Johnson, Vice President and General Manager of E-ONE, stated, “We are excited to serve the City of Chicago as their apparatus provider. Fire Service is an outstanding partner and we have full confidence in their ability to service and support the City of Chicago.”
