Fire Chief Jerry Lancelle – Hobart Fire Department

“From start to finish, Hobart Fire could not be happier with our new CustomFIRE engine.  CustomFIRE and Larry, our point of contact, made the whole process easy, smooth, and enjoyable.  It was an easy decision going with CustomFIRE.  Jim Kirvida flew down to sit with us to discuss what the could do for us before we decided on CustomFIRE.  That meeting told us a lot about their company and made us very comfortable with their final decision.

The first trip to CustomFIRE to start the build process told us we made the right choice for Hobart’s first custom chassis engine.  When you walk in the door at CustomFIRE, you are treated as if you are their only customer, from Jim the owner down to the guys out on the production floor.  From the pre-construction meeting to the final inspection, the great advice and experience from Jim, Julie, Larry, Brian, Jessie, Dan, and others was invaluable and provided us with choices that gave Hobart Fire a great engine to protect our residents for years to come.  I would definitely recommend anyone in the mark for fire apparatus to consider CustomFIRE.  The personal touch, great flexibility with change orders and special requests were always met with a ‘can-do’ attitude.”
