Ferrara Fire Apparatus is an American manufacturer of heavy-duty emergency service equipment. The firm is based in Holden, Louisiana, and was founded by Chris Ferrara.

Ferrara offers a custom-design process that gives the customer input into how the truck will be built. The manufacturing facility has a floor area of nearly 300,000 square feet, and was built by Firmin Construction Corporation.

Ferrara has delivered more than 5,000 new fire apparatus to agencies in the United States and around the world. Trucks are in service in places as diverse as Mexico City, New York City, Saudi Arabia, and China[citation needed].


Ferrara Fire Apparatus manufactures a wide variety of fire apparatus including the MVP Rescue Pumper, Custom Pumpers, Aerial Ladders, Aerial Platforms, Industrial Pumpers, Tankers, Rescue, and Wildland trucks.

Ferrara's new Inundator Super Pumper is considered to be the world's largest capacity NFPA-rated fire engine. This truck contains a pump capable of freely moving 5500 GPM from draft. This figure can rise to 10,000 GPM or more if the pump intake is connected to a pressurized source, such as a municipal water source.
