Fire Apparatus Journal has an excellent online article about photographing fire apparatus. The article by Dennis Maag presents pointers on photographing apparatus in a style similar to what's shown in FAJ. Some of the key points: use a 3/4 front/side view, shoot in full-sun, and utilize a fixed 50mm lens, or digital SLR equivalent.  We've also blogged about a FireNews feature on photographing fire apparatus, posted a couple years. Great examples in that article's Do's and Don'ts page. Both are excellent resources. Now get out and shoot.

Memo to self. With my Canon Rebel XT and its 1.6 multiplier, try a 31mm focal length when shooting apparatus.
