Flexibility By Design

Maximizing space is paramount on a fire apparatus; KME understands this. These combination rescue vehicles offer a climate controlled interior command area, while maintaining the compartment space of a walk around rescue. The unique KME custom construction process creates more usable body space by offering transverse and split depth compartments above the frame and small compartments for storage in areas that would otherwise be useless. Combination rescues also feature a formed body design for standard 29" deep conventional frame rails and formed interior walls for full width compartments.

Custom Command Centers

Looking to use a combination rescue as a command center? Bulldog and KME can help you design a custom command center that will meet your every requirement with limitless options.


Roof Access

KME offers various roof access options to meet space and safety concerns including fold-out ladders, recessed stairways and pull-out stairways.

Equipment and Tool Storage

KME knows just how important it is to use every inch of space on your unit. When it comes to custom fabrication, they offer unrivaled quality and functionality for equipment and tool storage.
