Derotic Emergency Equipment is owned and operated by a fire family—and when you work with us, you become a part of it!​

Our mission is to bring you the latest and greatest in tools and emergency vehicles for fire, law enforcement, and EMS. Please contact us with your fleet needs. We offer fast, friendly service and convenient online ordering. Need a hand, want something you don’t see, or have any questions? Just call (844) 4-DEROTIC or email us!

Our Commitment

We’re always here to help and will respond within 24 business hours. We also offer parts and accessories from industry-leading vendors, plus unique products designed and built by first responders throughout the USA. If you are a first responder and you’d like us to carry your products, we’d love to hear from you! We’re always looking for new items to share, from leather goods to tools to hot sauces. So what does Derotic mean? Long story short, it’s an acronym for our motto—disruptive excellence relies on tactical, innovative change—that was developed from this W.K. Kellogg Foundation article. We hope you enjoy browsing our website—thanks for visiting!
