Mesa, Arizona takes puts E-ONE electric fire truck in service

Mesa, Arizona’s all-electric fire truck is officially in service. The pumper truck, stationed at Fire Station 221 in southeast Mesa, will reduce toxin exposure for firefighters as part of the Mesa Fire and Medical Department’s commitment to implementing cutting-edge health and safety practices.


The truck, manufactured by E-ONE, a subsidiary of REV Group, Inc., is the first fully electric fire North American style engine in Arizona and will support the City of Mesa’s Climate Action Plan and goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 by helping to reduce the department’s carbon footprint.

The new fire truck can pump four hose lines at 750 gallons per minute for four hours on a single charge.

Station 221 is equipped with an electrical charger capable of fully recharging the fire truck in approximately 3 and a half hours. The fire station, which opened in 2021, was designed and built to keep firefighters healthy and safe. Safety measures include positive pressure airflow to keep contaminants out of living areas, exhaust capturing systems to remove vehicle exhaust in the bays while fire trucks are running prior to leaving the station and a decontamination area which now includes showers for firefighters to remove contaminants prior to entering living areas.

Funding for Mesa’s all-electric fire truck is from 2018 bonds approved by voters and the City’s General Fund.



In extreme fire ICE vehicles can stall and be trapped in a fire due to oxygen starvation. EV's are safer in this respect.


With titanate batteries electric fire trucks can work fine
they can handle the weight of the batteries well.
