About Us

Fire Apparatus

Fire Apparatus & Emergency Equipment Magazine is the only magazine writing exclusively for Fire Chiefs, Purchasing Committee Members, Trustees, Commissioners, Finance Committees and those whose job it is to buy Trucks, Tools, Turnout Gear and Firefighting Equipment. They read Fire Apparatus & Emergency Equipment Magazine for news and insight to make well-informed buying decisions.

We figured out long ago that our readers – Fire Chiefs, Fire Officers and Firefighters – already know how to operate a pumper, spot an aerial, handle hose lines and vent a roof. And they have all seen enough smoke and flames to last a lifetime.
