New Emergency Vehicles for Any Need
Situated on 4 acres, Fire & Safety Services is located in South Plainfield, NJ. Our territory includes the state of New Jersey and we have 9 sales representatives that actively work and represent Fire & Safety Services in their territories within the state. Our salesmen together average between 48 to 60 trucks a year, so we are extremely experienced with a wide range of department needs and requirements. On top of being experienced, our staff is passionate about the industry and what they do. A lot of them serve on volunteer departments or have in the past, so they know the job and respect it.
We realize that the sale is only the beginning. You need a truck that you can rely on day in and day out, and that means you need someone you can count on to be there for the next 20 years to help you maintain it. That’s why we also are invested in extensive capabilities and resources to support our customers after the sale in service. As our customer, you won’t just be buying an emergency vehicle from us…you will be buying our 54 years in the industry. We can offer the peace of mind that we will still be here 20 years from now when your truck is aging. Our industry has gone through several contractions over the last 10 years or so, and a lot of brands that were around a few years ago aren’t any more. We aren’t perfect, and neither are our manufacturers, but we will stand behind our product and our work. Housing over 18,000 sq.ft. of building, over 15,000 sq.ft of that space is dedicated to parts and service alone! We are an ASE Blue Ribbon certified facility and have a minimum of 4 EVT master technicians working in the shop or on the road. With our experienced sales and service team, we are confident we can help your department find and maintain your next fire apparatus!

What to Expect When Working with FSS
When we first meet with a customer, we try and get a sense of the community, what challenges it has, and how they approach firefighting. From this conversation, we work to gauge the difference between their needs, wants, “nice to haves.” The next topic we review is the customer’s budget. Budget is an important aspect as our apparatus are “packaged” into three separate areas: cab/chassis, pump house (if applicable) and body. – Fire and Safety Services can mix and match these different components to meet a department needs, but if we aren’t don’t know the budget, it could cause us to recommend an apparatus out of a department’s range. We always like to recommend the best configuration for one’s needs, but if we know the budget range, but we can still offer you a great configuration and meet one’s budget.
Once the initial meetings are completed and the requirements refined, we work to provide draft drawings and specifications for the apparatus as discussed. If a contract is awarded, we work with the department and the community leaders by obtaining the proper paperwork and coordinating any payments or financing that is required. Working as a liaison between the department and the manufacturer, we assist in the final blueprint review and approval, going over any recommended changes advised by the engineers, as well as any changes made by the customer after reviewing the prints. Changes also sometimes happen after visiting the factory and seeing other units under construction. We then provide the customer weekly progress reports of the unit as it is being built, we do the final inspection with them at the factory, and then prep the unit for final delivery after it leaves the factory. After we ensure everything is as expected with the apparatus, we receive final payment and customer gets their brand new truck to show off!
Although some steps may not be as exciting as the final one when a customer gets to pull their new truck into the station, we enjoy every step of the process because we know what an asset we are helping to provide communities through the state of New Jersey. If you choose to work with Fire & Safety Services, we can promise we will be there every step of the way.
