Very true. I guess I find it hard to believe they didn't have some
contingency plan or something. They really couldn't to anything manually ?
Unless the production lines were automated it seems like they had some other
issues here...

Forget what kind of hardware or software it was. I'm inclined to believe
that their I.T. department didn't do adequate testing, have a good
implementation plan, a fallback plan, etc. What about the financial
situation and management of the company itself, competitors, the market
for firetrucks, and other economic factors. My guess is that if it wasn't
the cost of the implementation it would have been something else.
