HEAVY DUTY | RESCUE
KME offers heavy duty rescues in the highest quality 3/16″ aluminum, Galvannealed steel or stainless steel.
These rescues are the most rugged, custom units available to the fire service. KME’s formed body design allows for maximum compartment space (29″ deep or transverse) and greater design flexibility. The fully integrated roof, light tower compartments, and walkways ensure a complete one-piece welded unit with unrivaled strength and weatherproof security.
KME bodies are not only the most custom, but also the most rugged. They begin with structural tubing as thick as 3/8″ as a frame substructure for superior strength. Then fabricated panels are stitch and plug welded, allowing the customer to maximize compartment space while maintaining optimum structural rigidity. The sub frame and panels are the same material, so dissimilar metal corrosion is eliminated. By not utilizing pre-determined extruded shapes and sizes KME bodies provide stronger construction, ease of repair and overall flexibility in design.

WET RESCUE | RESCUE
Now more than ever fire departments are required to function at higher levels, carry more equipment, and do more with less.
KME Wet Rescues combine the best of all worlds by maximizing storage space, water capacity, functionality, and versatility while maintaining the smallest overall apparatus package available to the fire service.
KME’s flexibility in design combined with 3D modeling of all bodies and shelving gives the fire department the ability to meet equipment and storage needs by maximizing all available compartment space while maintaining desired water and foam capacities. Providing optional transverse lower compartments and roof compartments along with tanks ranging from 200 gallons to over 1000 gallons, KME has the ability to exceed your needs. With KME, furnishing water on your apparatus will not sacrifice your compartment space demands.
Pump options on wet rescues include PTO, mid-ship, rear mounted, and auxiliary engine driven along with a variety of foam systems. Safety is KME’s top priority and our 3 pump panel positions (driver’s side, officer’s side, and true rear mount) allow departments to place your operator out of harm’s way and increase vision at the scene. KME works closely with each customer to ensure the pump panel arrangement is as functional as possible within the smallest package, leaving more room for equipment.
