Mid-South Emergency Equipment is a dealer of E-ONE Emergency Equipment.
E-ONE is a worldwide designer, manufacturer and marketer of fire rescue vehicles with more than 23,000 vehicles in operation around the world. Headquartered in Ocala, Florida, E-ONE is the industry leader in product innovations, new technologies and exceeding customer expectations.
E-ONE manufactures custom and commercial pumpers and tankers, aerial ladders and platforms, rescues of all sizes, quick attack units, industrial trucks, and aircraft rescue firefighting vehicles to meet the needs of fire departments, rescue/EMS squads, airports, Homeland Security agencies and the military.
Just as important as the full product line is the fact that E-ONE engineers and builds the complete vehicle – chassis, cab, body, tank and aerial device. And because E-ONE is a single source manufacturer, the customer’s after sale needs are satisfied with just one call to their dealer or E-ONE for parts, service, warranty, training and manuals.
Established in 1974, E-ONE has grown to become an industry leader in just a few decades, and today employs more than 800 people in four plants totaling more than 420,000 square feet. Innovation has been the company’s driving force and continues to be the impetus behind its pursuit of new technologies. The result is state-of-the-art fire rescue vehicles recognized for superior firefighting and rescue capabilities.
E-ONE pioneered the use of aluminum in fire rescue vehicles and continues to lead the industry today with innovative uses of this material. Aluminum is used for several important reasons:
Aluminum is resistant to corrosion and will not rust like steel, resulting in a longer field life than trucks made of steel, translating to considerably lower maintenance costs.
Aluminum is lighter than steel, which means less wear and tear on the engine, transmission, brakes and tires, contributing to an extended vehicle life and reduced maintenance costs.
Less weight means more payload (equipment and water) capacity.
Our all-aluminum aerials’ natural finish never needs painting, saving thousands of dollars in repaints over the life of the aerial.
E-ONE uses aluminum exclusively in both the body plate and extrusions. Extrusions are made by heating aluminum and pushing it through a die to give it shape. After cooling, the finished extrusion is just as strong on a corner as it is on a flat surface. Slots in the extrusion allow the body’s aluminum outer skin to slide into place, creating a durable tongue-and-groove assembly, which is then welded into place. This interlocking of extrusions and body plates makes for an extremely strong, yet lightweight, cab and body.
E-ONE’s modular construction makes it easy to repair a body if it is damaged in an accident. In addition, it is possible to re-chassis for an extended service life when a commercial chassis needs to be replaced. In the end, the extended field life of E-ONE’s aluminum cabs and bodies results in higher resale or trade-in value, and increases vehicle lifecycle.
