Apparatus Information

  • 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.

  • Saulsbury Fire & Rescue Apparatus was an American fire apparatus manufacturer located in Preble, NY. Fancher L. "Sam" Saulsbury, a machinist who was also the chief for the Preble Volunteer Fire Department, built his first fire truck in 1958. He formed Saulsbury Fire Equipment in the early 1960s and, among its other offerings, the company started to specialize in walk-in rescue trucks. After sub-contracting work for several years, Saulsbury consolidated production in a new plant in Tully, New York in 1973. They moved again to a larger facility in Preble in 1988. In 1998, Saulsbury was purchased by Federal Signal Corporation, the parent company of E-One at the time. In 2004, E-One announced the closure of the Saulsbury plant. Saulsbury's signature products were rescues, but they also pumpers, tankers and mini-pumpers. A small number of aerials equipped with LTI aerial devices were built in the mid-1990s. Trucks were built on custom and commercial chassis.
