The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is an agency, which belongs to the United States Department of Homeland Security. It was initially created by Presidential Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1978 and it was implemented one year later on April the first. Their headquarter is in Washington D.C. and owns many fire engines, ambulances and many other vehicles meant to come in help in time of national emergency. The agency does not work with any fire truck producer, but it purchases specialized vehicles from the best producers worldwide.
What is FEMA’s purpose?
The Federal Emergency Management was created to coordinate disasters and national emergencies that have occurred in the United States and that overwhelms the local and state authorities. Only when the governor of the state in which the disaster occurred declared a state of emergency, the FEMA should respond to his request by sending as many fire trucks, ambulances, and other vehicles with specialized teams as needed. The exception from the governors’ requests is when the disaster occurs on federal property or to a federal asset. For example, FEMA intervened at the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City and at the Space Shuttle Columbia flight disaster in 2003.
What types of engines does FEMA have?
Because FEMA is required to respond to any type of emergency, it owns many different types of emergency vehicles, such as the newest model of the fire engine, wildland engine, heavy rescue engine, aerial apparatus with telescopic ladders, ambulances, extrication vehicles, helicopters, and others. The best fire truck manufacturers are supplying FEMA with the needed vehicles. All the fire apparatuses mentioned above are available at Volkan Fire, the best fire truck producer Turkey. As we are an experienced producer and distributor, we are willing to conquer the international markets more and more.
