North Cowichan Fire Department Pumper 28

Founded in Red Deer, Alberta in 1973, Superior Emergency Vehicles was Canada’s largest fire apparatus manufacturer.
By 1989, Superior was delivering over 100 trucks each year and had become Canada’s largest apparatus builder. In January 1992, Florida based Emergency One purchased Superior. Gradually, more and more trucks built for Canadian departments were built at E-One’s main facilities in Florida and shipped north.
After 30 years of operation, Superior’s name changed to E-One Canada Corp. in 2003. In 2006, E-One announced that it was shutting down the Red Deer plant and the Superior brand name.
Superior built over 3600 trucks, including Pumper 28, a 2002 E-One Typhoon / Superior (1050/800) .
