posted an article HERE about Spartan Motors, Inc., the parent company of Crimson Fire, Spartan Chassis, and Utilimaster, announcing their purchase of Classic Fire, LLC in Ocala, FL. Classic builds a line of fire apparatus including small rescue units, commercial pumpers and tankers, wildland/brush units, and skid units.

Firegeezer also has some commentary on the direction he feels the fire apparatus industry will be heading. You can read his thoughts HERE and HERE.
