DescriptionCaption: "Averages 750 gallons per minute. This style of fire equipment replaces horsedrawn apparatus. It is so designed that the hose wagon and pump are combined in the same apparatus, which eliminates one piece of apparatus in the company where it is installed. It is of the latest design and the records show that the men are able to connect to hydrant, stretch 300 feet of hose, and deliver water in less than 36 seconds."
