E-ONE gives fire truck away at FRI 2010 trade show

For the second year in a row, E-ONE has enlisted the help of several industry partners to sponsor a contest to give a brand new fire truck away to a department which shows an overwhelming need for a new truck. After the field of entrants was narrowed to seven finalists, the winner was determined by on-line voting for the most deserving department. Today, E-ONE awarded the fire truck to the Owens Cross Road Volunteer Fire Department from northern Alabama.

The winner was announced after Peter Guile, E-One’s president, read one heart wrenching story after another to a large crowd on the trade show floor who had gathered at the E-ONE booth.
