E-ONE, a leading manufacturer of fire apparatus and subsidiary of REV Group, Inc., has announced that the Boston Fire Department has placed an order for six additional E-ONE aerials.

This order is part of a new three-year contract with Greenwood Emergency Vehicles, the exclusive dealer for E-ONE in Massachusetts. The Boston Fire Department has ordered a total of 32 E-ONE aerials since 2016, and this latest order for six E-ONE Metro 100’ aerials will add to that count.

The LTH (low travel height) Metro 100’ ladder truck is designed to maneuver the tight city streets of Boston. Its 10’ 8” low overall height makes it suitable for every firehouse in the city, and it can fit under the low bridges of Storrow Drive, a major crosstown roadway in Boston.

The truck’s features include a short 220” wheelbase and 38’ 7” overall length for excellent maneuverability in the city, narrow 11’ jack spread, electronic stability control, and severe duty interior including severe duty dash, overhead, and door panels.

The truck also has “Inner City” bumpers with angled corners for improved turning radius, zinc flame spray coating on the integral torque box for corrosion protection, and storage for 265’ of ground ladders including a 50’, 40’, (2) 35’, 28, 20’ 16’ 14’ 10’ and a 17’ Little Giant ladder.

Mark MacDonald, President of Greenwood Emergency Vehicles, said: “We remain grateful and continue to be humbled by the faith that the “First In The Nation” Fire Department has placed in Greenwood and Emergency One, and we certainly consider it a privilege and an honor to work with them.”

Larry Daniels, Director of Sales at E-ONE, said: “It is a privilege to help the Boston Fire Department better serve its citizens with fire apparatus designed to meet the city’s specific needs. The Metro 100 – with its low travel height, short wheelbase and narrow 11’ jack spread – is the perfect truck for this big city department and we look forward to working with them for years to come.”
