    Cocoa Beach, FL-GMC "Quick Attack"

    Here are 2 slides of a 1976/77 GMC Sprint from the Cocoa Beach, Florida FD. Unfortunately there is no info on the slides. Not sure if it was department built or not. Doesn't look like it would've been well suited as a brush truck. Photographer not known.

    This came with other factory photos of Marion & Pierce mini-pumpers. There is no info on the photos, I am assuming that it's a demonstrator to show 2 different types bodies.

Including this call box, and I don't think I've ever seen one before. It's a Econolite, division of Tamar Electronics. When you open it...

    Chinese Navy?

    I recently purchased some old Pierce factory photos from our friend Kent Parrish. This is one photo that has me quite confused. On the back it says "1953 IHC R-176 Pierce". I cant imagine we were on good terms with China after the Korean war that we would build fire apparatus for them. I was...

    Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps

    I was going through old Sanborn Fire Insurance maps on another project and realized how many old firehouses and fire manufacturers are on the old maps. These were made from the late 1800s through about WW2, they are fairly detailed drawings of buildings to estimate fire insurance liabilities. If...

    I don't have much from Woodford County FD, it wasn't known as the friendliest department to visit. I only thought of starting a thread for it since the 87 year old (yes, 87) chief finally retired. They have 5 stations and are all volunteer aside from 3 paid (8am-4pm). Engine 3-1996...

    State Hospital FDs

    Had no idea where to put this one. I was looking through old photos at the Kankakee County Museum & stumbled across these 2. Sometime around the turn of the century, it's the Kankakee State Hospital Fire Brigade. It was comprised of both employees & patients. Sometime in the early 1970s the...
