Volunteer & Rural Fire Apparatus
by W. Wayne Sorensen and Donald F. Wood
Iconografix, 224 pages, Size: 11x8.5, copyright 1999
See the enormous variety of volunteer and rural fire apparatus built in 20th Century America. Small town fire departments relied on fire apparatus built on commercial truck chassis such as Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, or International. The chassis would be sent to a builder, such as Boardman, Pierce, or Seagrave, who would outfit them with a pump, hosebed, ladder racks, etc. Some departments did the outfitting themselves, relying on a local bodyshop or welder to do bodywork. Now, accomplished fire apparatus authors, W. Wayne Sorensen and Donald F. Wood, have compiled hundreds of photos of these unique small town rigs into one Photo Gallery. See ladder trucks, tank trucks, rescue trucks, brush rigs, and more. Every fire fighting enthusiast will enjoy this fascinating collection of photographs.
