With under 25,000 miles, this used fire truck has been very well taken care of over its life. There should be plenty of life left to respond to emergency calls in your own fire department with this piece of emergency equipment.
Smeal is a major competitor in the fire and rescue industry and has thousands of firetrucks and aerial ladders protecting lives and property throughout North America. The Smeal companies are family owned with five of Don and Ardath's children working in the businesses along with their spouses and their children.

He left his companies in the hands of his family and his long-term dedicated employees who share the same commitment to our customers. The Smeal products that are in service across the continent and around the world are built with pride and integrity in the heartland of America. - See more at: http://www.smeal.com/about_smeal#sthash.2DXxE2F5.dpuf http://www.smeal.com/about_smeal
Changes in NFPA in 1991 significantly increased fire fighter's safety when operating a fire truck. Buying a used fire apparatus newer than this year will bring those safety features into your firehouse as well. The enclosed cab which was required in 1991 and forward brought fire fighters out of the elements of weather, and into the safety of the fire apparatus cab.
