About Us

Jim Demattei is a seasoned Fire Captain with almost 30 years in the fire service and a long history of selling fire apparatus. Casey Demattei came from a successful 20-year career in the motorcycle industry. Once she had conquered that, she got her B.S. in Advertising and began working in the corporate marketing sector.

Despite their diverse backgrounds, they share a passion for emergency vehicles and a desire to bring change and innovation to the industry. That's how Derotic was born...an acronym for Disruptive Excellence Relies On Tactical, Innovative Change.  

Initially, we sold trucks and parts independently for Seagrave Fire Apparatus. But when they asked us to apply for our California DMV dealer license, it changed everything. We were now a full-blown emergency vehicle dealership.

In 2018, we opened our SoCal shop, and in 2019, we opened our NoCal shop.

At Derotic Emergency Equipment, we foster a family-like atmosphere where respect, trust, and innovation thrive. We believe in hiring the best of the best, empower them to make decisions autonomously, and encourage fresh ideas. Our employees aren't just workers; they're valued team members. We trust them implicitly, and they appreciate the freedom and responsibility that comes with it.

Our Values

What sets us apart:

Our unwavering commitment to tackling challenges others won't.

We take on 100% custom and complex projects that no one else dares to touch. We're known for turning ideas into reality, often pulling solutions out of thin air. When others say it's impossible, we say, "Let's make it happen." We're disruptors in an industry known for its old-school ways, offering a refreshing alternative to the traditional "good ol' boy" culture.

We’re more than just a repair shop.

We're a team of passionate individuals dedicated to serving those who serve our communities. We pride ourselves on our history, our relationships with our employees, and our unique approach to problem-solving. When you choose us, you choose innovation, trust, and a commitment to excellence in every service we offer.
