History

Over the years there have been a number of companies which have built apparatus for fire departments and many persons have gathered historical information together and many others have preserved the apparatus themselves.

One of these companies is the Bickle Fire Engine Company which started in Winnipeg as the R.S. Bickle Company which built horse-drawn apparatus. Ed Hass has written an article about the Bickle Fire Engine Company of Woodstock, Ontario.  Bickle was the Canadian licensee for Ahrens-Fox and so theer were a number of custom Bickle-Ahrens-Fox apparatus built..Bickle also built apparatus on commercial chassis.  Among the commercial chassis used were those built by Gotfredson of Winnipeg.  Walt McCall has also written an account of the Bickle company for the Ontario Fire buffs Association.

The Canadian Fire Truck Archive has attempted to gather together information about the history of various Canadian manufacturers of fire trucks and is both a useful and interesting site.
