The new RT electric fire truck makes its debut as federal policymakers consider ambitious policies to accelerate vehicle electrification.
America’s first electric fire truck will be in Hicksville, NY the week of May 3.
Developed by Rosenbauer America, the Revolutionary Technology (RT) is a concept truck that is safe, powerful, and emissions free. The RT will be on display for the FDNY, as well as media.
The fire truck will be on display at Gabrielli Truck Sales at 880 South Oyster Bay Road from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. for the entire week.
This tour comes just as Congress considers an infrastructure and jobs plan to dramatically improve the overall quality of American roads, bridges and other critical investments.
The RT is vastly different from fire trucks on the road today, both in its appearance and how it supports the firefighters and communities who depend on it. The fully electric and completely emissions-free Revolutionary Technology (RT) is the fire truck of the future and will soon be seen on streets throughout the country.
Built from the ground up using the most advanced materials and technologies, the RT is the safest fire truck on the roads today - for firefighters, for communities and for the environment. The RT is America’s first fully electric apparatus that boasts a high level of safety, excellent driving dynamics and maneuverability, innovative safety features, and is fully networked. These features and more make the RT the most modern emergency vehicle on the market and sets an entirely new standard within the fire industry.
