GK-Built Apparatus In Action
 Gowans-Knight Company designs and builds fire apparatus, rescue trucks, brush trucks and utility vehicles at it's headquarters at Watertown CT. On occasion, we receive photos of our GK-built apparatus "in action". These pages are dedicated to those photos, and to the men and women of all emergency services, who dedicate themselves to the safety of others. Newest photos will be displayed first.
