01/15/12 68 W, 1 I - + 3 - 3 Atlas Fire Apparatus Ad - 1982

Found for sale on eBay, here's a Fire Engineering magazine ad for Atlas Fire Apparatus in Raleigh. They built commercial-chassis pumpers, tankers, and mini-pumpers for a couple decades in the Capitol City. Started as Atlas Steel Products in 1959, and was acquired by Amfire in 1982. Later renamed Emergency Equipment Incorporated (EEI). Readers probably have plenty of anecdotes on this one. Click to enlarge:

Mike, WSFD had 4 pumpers built by EEI 4 Kenworth L700 canopy cabs w/ 1000gpm pumps and 500 tanks starting in 83,84,85,86, and then a final one on a MACK MC w/ 4 door cab enclosure and same specs as the previous Kenworths. Of course they were Lime green w, white roofs. Old girls did a good job and I had the pleasure of being assigned to all of them at one time or another.

An earlier ad featured Wilson’s Mills C-800 canopy cab pumper. I believe that they still have that pumper. It was a 1000 gpm unit, with a 750 gal tank, a 429 cid V8 gasoline engine, and a 5-speed transmission.

Some of these EEI trucks still in use in Harnett County.
