All Area Fire and Rescue is our Braun ambulance dealer for New York counties including Nassau, Suffolk, Kings, Queens, Westchester, and Rockland. The organization also goes by the business name Nassau Fire Apparatus.
The company was started in 1971 as N & A Auto Services by owner Andy Buglione. At that time, it focused on major and minor car and truck repairs. In 1992, Andy formed a separate company called All Area Fire and Rescue. All Area Sales became a Braun dealer and in 8 short years the company was named one of Braun's gold dealers. Over the years, various businesses started by Andy were consolidated, and in 2006 they merged with a well known and established company called Nassau Fire Apparatus, creating a leader in emergency vehicle sales, repair, maintenance, fabrication and restoration.
Today, All Area Fire and Rescue / Nassau Fire Apparatus, operates out of a 15,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility at 120 Otis Street in West Babylon, NY. The facility has an impressive 14 service bays, with 12 technicians, and 3 factory trained painters; they are a Braun authorized service center. They are capable of handling all service needs in-house, nothing is subcontracted out. They also have 5 service trucks that provide on-site repair and 24/7 emergency roadside assistance.
Peter Caliendo is the Braun ambulance sales representative at All Area Fire and Rescue. He is extremely knowledgeable on the Braun product line and has previously been named Braun's Top Salesman of the Year. The quality and value of Braun's ambulances attracted All Area Sales to the line and the construction techniques and materials used to produce them keep them selling. Pete feels the best selling tool for a Braun ambulance is to show a potential customer one that's been in service for 15 years, because it still looks brand new! In the recent economic downtown, many public safety providers set their sights on low end vehicles, despite the fact that now is the best time buy value. "Thankfully, existing Braun customers have benefitted from the value of a Braun ambulance and have not steered away," says Pete.
