Approximately 72% of firefighters in North Carolina are unpaid volunteers, and most of the fire departments rely on a largely volunteer staff to protect their communities. These volunteer fire departments are often underfunded and rely on high-quality secondhand equipment to provide the tools they need to respond to emergencies.
At Fenton Fire Equipment, we’ve curated one of the largest online marketplaces for pre-owned firefighting equipment and used fire trucks in North Carolina. We work hard to ensure volunteer fire departments in the state have access to affordable vehicles and tools to keep their communities safe.
Used Fire Engines and Pumpers in North Carolina
Standard fire engines and pumpers are often the first vehicles to arrive at the scene of a fire. These trucks transport a limited water supply along with firefighters and the equipment they need to begin firefighting. For this reason, fire engines are some of the most vital vehicles required for any volunteer fire department.
Fenton Fire Equipment offers various used pumpers for sale in North Carolina, including engines from top brands like HME, Seagrave and Pierce. Our listings include a range of models, meaning you’ll surely find a vehicle to meet your department’s specific needs and budget.
Every pumper and engine listed is verified by our team according to safety and usability standards. When you purchase an engine through Fenton Fire Equipment, you can put it to work right away.
Used Tankers for Sale in North Carolina
In rural areas, firefighters may encounter difficulties accessing the water they need to effectively combat a fire. Fire hydrants are often fewer and farther apart in these areas, so they aren’t always an option. In these circumstances, firefighters rely on tankers and water tenders to transport large quantities of water to the scene.
Tankers are some of the most popular trucks bought and sold here at Fenton Fire Equipment. As you browse our website, you’ll find a range of models with capacities from 1,000 to 3,000 gallons. Our listings are always packed with options for affordable used tankers from brands like International, Peterbilt, Freightliner and Pierce.
Used Quints and Ladder Trucks for Sale in North Carolina
Ladder trucks are perhaps some of the most identifiable firefighting vehicles in use today. They allow firefighters to access higher-up floors in homes, hotels and public buildings for rescues and firefighting. We offer numerous ladder truck models, including 100-foot ladder trucks, mid-mount ladder trucks and telesquirts.
We also provide a wide range of quintuples, also known as quints. Quints offer five-in-one functionality, with all the capabilities of a ladder truck, fire truck, aerial, engine and water pump. Because of this multifunctionality, quints can be used for a truck or engine company.
Browse our listings to find ladder trucks and used quints for sale in North Carolina. If you’re not sure which truck is the best fit for your department, get in touch with our team and we will help you determine the ideal model based on your needs and budget.
Used Rescue Trucks for Sale in North Carolina
Rescue trucks contain the supplies needed to conduct rescues, provide medical care and transport patients in various emergency situations, including car accidents, fires and hazmat exposures. These vehicles are often specialized to handle specific situations, so fire departments usually have several in their fleets.
At Fenton Fire Equipment, we offer numerous used rescue trucks verified for value and functionality. Our listings include a wide selection of rescue trucks for sale near you, including walk-ins, 4x4s and heavy rescue trucks from leading brands like SVI, HME, Pierce, KME and Spartan. Some of our trucks are already customized for a specific rescue situation, while others can be personalized according to your needs.
Used Chief/Command Vehicles for Sale in North Carolina
The fire chief and their aides should have their own vehicles with distinct markings indicating who they are. These chief/command vehicles, which are usually trucks or SUVs, have short- and long-wave radios, sirens and light beacons that allow them to stay in touch and safely navigate traffic to get to the scene of an emergency quickly.
Your chief/command vehicles have to be reliable to ensure important personnel like the fire chief can get to a scene and perform their duties efficiently. That’s why Fenton goes the extra mile to compile and verify information about each used chief/command vehicle listed on our marketplace, including the vehicle’s make and model, age, mileage, history and features. These details allow you to make an informed decision when purchasing your vehicles.
Our listings typically include a range of vans, trucks and SUVs from brands like Ford, GMC and Chevy. While these automobiles are intended for use by chiefs/command, many can also be used as police and EMS vehicles as well.
Used Ambulances for Sale in North Carolina
Fire stations rely on ambulances to provide emergency medical care and transportation in response to car accidents, fires and other life-threatening situations. These vehicles are filled with lifesaving equipment and medically trained personnel to stabilize patients in critical condition as they are transported to a hospital for further care.
Ambulances are categorized into three types according to their configuration. Type one ambulances feature modules mounted on traditional truck chassis with pickup truck cabs, while type two features van-style ambulances. Type three ambulances are mounted on cutaway van chassis and offer a doorway between the cab and module for easy access.
We offer a wide selection of reliable used ambulances from each of these categories. Browse our online listings to find the perfect used vehicle to add to your fire station’s fleet — you’ll be prepared to handle any emergency situation.
