FF1 will distribute Acela’s Monterra line of extreme-duty, high water/flood recue trucks throughout the New Jersey and Delaware region.

BOZEMAN, MONTANA AND SPARTA, NEW JERSEY - Acela Truck Company recently announced that is has entered into a dealer agreement with Firefighter One (FF1) to distribute Acela’s Monterra line of extreme-duty, high water/flood rescue trucks throughout the New Jersey and Delaware region. The two industry-leading companies are partnering to offer North America’s most capable high water flood rescue trucks and wildland fire trucks, expanding Acela Truck Company’s growing distribution footprint and FF1’s  extensive product offerings.

“FF1 is excited to add the Acela Monterra line of high-water flood rescue trucks to our product offerings”, says Jonathon Van Norman, President of FF1. “With flooding events becoming commonplace on the East Coast,  FF1 has recognized an increasing  demand for more purpose-built, modern and reliable flood rescue trucks.  We know these catastrophic events are coming and it’s time to prepare with the right equipment. FF1 has found the Acela Monterra to be the single best solution in the market today. Our customers demand modern, comfortable, safe and purpose-built solutions.  Repurposing and maintaining old and unreliable surplus military trucks isn’t what our first responders need.  The Acela Monterra, with its 46-inch tires, all-wheel-drive, 50-inch water fording capability and central tire inflation system has proven to be the perfect solution for flood rescue response and can easily serve double-duty as wildland/brush trucks outside of flood/hurricane season.”  

“We’re thrilled to have FF1 representing our high-mobility Monterra flood rescue trucks and truck chassis lines into the firefighting market,” says David Ronsen, President of Acela Truck Company.  “FF1 understands the needs of their customers and has a reputation as one of the highest quality fire truck dealers in the U.S.. By working together, an increasing number of fire and police departments will be able to significantly increase their response capabilities with our high-mobility trucks.”
