The City of Houston has awarded Ferrara Fire Apparatus, Inc. a contract for 10 new custom pumpers.
The trucks will be built on Ferrara Igniter custom chassis, each equipped with a 3/16-inch marine grade aluminum cab and body. Ferrara fire trucks have been in service in Houston since 2005. When the new apparatus are delivered, Houston’s fleet will have nearly 70 Ferrara vehicles.
The Houston contract follows Ferrara’s announcement of a substantial aerial contract from New York City.
“We work hard every day to earn the business of great cities like Houston,” said company President and CEO Chris Ferrara. “The employees of Ferrara take pride in knowing the trucks they build protect so many residents of this and other cities and towns across America.”
Houston, a city with more than 2 million residents, has America’s fourth largest fire department with 88 engine companies and 92 fire stations.
Ferrara, based in Holden, La., manufactures a full line of fire and emergency vehicles, including the Inferno, Igniter, Ember and Intruder 2 custom chassis, pumpers and tankers, rear and mid-mount aerial ladders and platforms, rescue and incident command vehicles, Inundator foam pumpers, airport vehicles and the Strong Arm fire rescue vehicle.
