American Eagle Fire Apparatus was an American fire truck manufacturer located in Gainesville, Florida.

American Eagle was founded in 1986 by some former employees of E-One. In 1989, E-One purchased the company and wound down operations in Gainesville a short time later.

E-One discontinued use of the American Eagle brand around 1992. When American Fire Eagle apparatus commenced use of a similar logo, E-One brought suit for them to desist. The logo case was decided in 2000, around which time E-One began to make use of the logo again. It is not known when use of the American Eagle logo and brand was discontinued.
