Blaze Emergency Equipment Company is dedicated to firefighting and specialty equipment and the men and women that use it. We back our work and company name with integrity.

Our company’s service technicians include  firefighters and EMT’s, who know all the ins and outs of an apparatus. Blaze’s service technicians are ASE & EVT certified which is a requirement as per the National Fire Protection Association 1071 Standard for Emergency Vehicle Technician Professional Qualifications.

Our sales team of seven (7) are all also active firefighters and EMT’s, who are aware of the challenges you face when you’re out there. They’ve been there too. Our team has the experience to help you make the most of your apparatus. Whether it’s trying to decide between a single or a dual stage pump or making sure your generator is large enough to power all your lights and equipment, we have the know-how to make sure you have the right truck for the job. Blaze Emergency Equipment has been a apparatus dealer for the last six (6) years in the New Jersey central and southern regions.

The purchase of a fire truck or specialty vechicle is a big endeavor and investment. You need a truck that you can rely on day in and day out. This means you need a company you can count on to be there for years to come. If your company is facing serious issues with your fire apparatus contact us and we will help resolve the problem immediately for you. Whether it is on-site service at your building, or major repairs which need to be attended to at our facility our service technicians are there for you and on call 24/7/365. Your truck is our truck; we stand behind our work so that you can stand behind yours.
