    This industry primarily manufactures two types of vehicles: fire trucks and fire engines.

Other key components include housing for different types of ground ladders and specialized equipment for forcible entry, ventilation and search and rescue tasks. Typically, these types of vehicles allow firefighters access to fires at various heights or help remove pedestrian casualties from fires at heights. These vehicles traditionally lack water pumping or storage, but many modern fire trucks include a pumping function or may have a prepiped waterway running along the ladder.
