Eastford Fire & Rescue Sales has been a
source of quality emergency vehicle repairs and service for over twenty years.

Eastford Truck Sales, has been a family owned and operated business since 1968.  Our roots go back to 1922, when Oliver Bowen, grandfather to Christopher Bowen, opened Bowen's Garage. Today, it continues the Bowen family tradition of excellence in customer service as one of the oldest existing Ford dealerships in the nation.

We believe that service is the most important aspect of any business, but especially for an emergency vehicle dealer. Servicing emergency vehicles is a tremendous responsibility and must be performed with both speed and accuracy. We also believe that servicing volunteer organizations requires a special attention to convenience for the volunteers. That’s why Eastford Fire & Rescue Sales provides free on-site service and pick-up and delivery service. It's hard enough finding volunteers to cover shifts and answer calls without worrying about finding two spare people to shuttle an out-of-service vehicle to and from the garage.
