Boise Mobile Equipment (BME) opened its doors in 1990 and has been serving the fire industry and firefighters for 28 years. We are dedicated to provide customers with individualized design options, and exceptional craftsmanship with the highest safety standards and best durability in the market. No other fire truck manufacturer offers our flexibility in creating the perfect custom fire apparatus to fit your needs. We understand that fire and rescue departments face special challenges related to their unique environments, so we are committed to designing better fire trucks. Whether you need wildland fire trucks or a custom water tender, the BME apparatus will perform as you need it to perform.  Our 28 years of experience enables us to both meet and exceed your expectations, so let BME help you create your next fire truck.


With over 29 years of experience as a premier fire truck manufacturer and hundreds of Wildland Type 3 engines in the field, Boise Mobile Equipment can help you design and create the Wildland apparatus you need. Taking the time to understand your specific needs, our staff utilizes a collaborative process to not only create the apparatus you need, but build something you can trust. You will never go wrong buying a BME Type 3 because your apparatus will work continually year after year.


Available in “wet side”, “dry side”, or “elliptical” configurations with tanks ranging from 500 to 3,000 gallons and pumps ranging from 250 to 1,500 GPM and a wide range of compartment configurations, we’re here to help you meet your needs.


Boise Mobile Equipment’s Light Rescues are a versatile option for every fire department’s needs. Built on a Ford® F550 or Dodge® Ram® 5500 chassis, BME’s Rescues are economical, offer great maneuverability, and decrease response times. Smaller vehicles necessitate better designs; our custom-designed Light Rescue bodies are not only rugged, but are designed to your specifications. We strive to optimize equipment storage through the design process. Our engineers know how important storage is, and they work with each department to create the most efficient use of the entire vehicle. Built to last, BME Light Rescues use the same tubular construction as their rugged Wildland counterparts and will service your department needs for many years. You cannot go wrong by adding a BME Light Rescue to your arsenal.
