E-ONE, a subsidiary of REV Group and a manufacturer of fire apparatus, announces a new collaboration with the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department. Working with E-ONE to address the issue of exposure to harmful materials and carcinogens contaminating firefighter’s protective gear, the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department has chosen new decontamination options for its five new E-ONE Custom Rescue Pumpers.
