The fire trucks are equipped with the ZeroRPM® Idle Mitigation System, specifically engineered for E-ONE apparatus. The idle mitigation system will automatically switch off the fire truck’s chassis engine to power the warning lights, work lights and scene lights.

The most typical pump panel locations are midmount pump panels on the driver’s side followed by top-mount panels, but then there are those in more unusual locations like the upper rear-mount location and the outboard or curbside pump panel for rear-mount pumps.

The heritage of today’s tractor-drawn aerials (TDAs) can be traced back to the late 1800s when the trailers were first given rear steering but were still drawn by horses.

From east to west and north to south, fire departments are having manufacturers build smaller units that are carrying larger pumps and performing many functions that typically are done with Type 1 pumpers.
