So here's the story...

911 Rapid Response opened doors in 2006 with two simple goals. To supply our heroes with the equipment they need, and to build custom vehicles above customers' expectations. We offer public safety equipment to keep you safe while responding and on scene at emergency calls. Our showroom is packed with emergency equipment, police gear, EMS supplies, traffic safety supplies and much more. We carry just about every major brand, and if you're not finding quite what you're looking for, give us a call and we'll be glad to help you out. Our install shop is always loaded with vehicles, ranging from Police, Fire, EMS to even commercial vehicles.

We're unique in that we offer a true, one-stop shop to our customers. From the time your vehicle is delivered to us, to the time it is ready for pickup, the vehicle never leaves our shop. All custom work, computers, cages, emergency lighting, sirens, to everything you can imagine is done 100% in-house; truly allowing us to ensure top quality, and pass on savings to our most valuable assets...our customers


Professionalism. Pride. Respect.

We're different because we care. We understand what it's like to be a Police Officer, a Firefighter, or a Paramedic; because we've been there. Our staff consists of current and retired Police Officers, Firefighters, Fire Officers, EMTs/Paramedics, and other crucial Public Safety employees. We live by the motto "There are no traffic jams in the second mile." We always go above and beyond. We live, breathe and dream about being different than anyone else. And we are. We're sure you won't find anyone as dedicated to making sure our most valuable assets are taken care of...you, our customers. Give us a call, and let us show you how much we care.
