This is my 1941 Chevrolet / American LaFrance pumper. After retiring from the Hammond Fire Dept. on Sept. 15, 2001, I still wanted to be a part of the fire service so I decided to start my own department
. A friend of mine had this truck in a warehouse and sold it to me when he found out I was looking for a truck. It is a 500 GPM pump with a 250 gallon booster tank (which was totally rusted, so I removed it for more rider room).
All of the equipment on the truck is period correct, still looking for extension ladders (have roof ladder)
It is great fun for all of the parades and festivals we have in southeast Louisiana.
Also thanks for this site, it has been a big help to me.
