    Tiller:
    It's a conventional cab. Very cramped quarters inside. It's hard to put two men in there with TOG on, much less trying to pack up in the officer's seat. When I drive, I usually throw my gear in the back compartment or in the tray above the pump.

    Found a half decent pic at work:




    The picture is weird, the trucks aren't that annoyingly bright yellow. That truck is sharp, though, when you see it in person, and that baby can MOVE.

                Our oldest is a 1978 Ford with 750 tank and 750 gmp pump. It's our reserve and doesn't run calls or parades. It's just there for ISO credits but we are looking to get rid of it and put our next oldest pumper into reserve. If so, then our 1986 Ford with 750 tank and 1250 gpm pump would be reserve and it still runs good if we need to put it in service.

                  And heres' a pic of our 1986 Ford Pumper. 750 tank and 1250gpm pump. Still in service and my favorite truck to drive in any parades. It runs like a champ but with no air conditioner or AM/FM radio it's not a favorite among most of our vollies. But I love it and even though it may become our Reserve in the near future it will still pump as well as anything we have bought lately.

                    Re: oldest apparatus

                    Our oldest apparatus is a 1982 Crown Pumper. We aquired it early this year from the Marysville Fire District (Sno. Co. WA) Our Volunteers put many hours into refurbishing the engine to match our first out. With a black over red paint scheme, all the diamond plate was polished and we had all the compartments done with "Line - X." The engine is a strong runner and still pumps with the best of them. It is said that this crown was one of the very last to roll out of the plant from the crown company, shortly after being put in service the crown was first in on a second alarm hanger fire. The crown is second out to our 2002 Pierce Quantum.

                      We have two "parade" pieces that we regularly take to parades in our area, first we have an 1866 Amoskeag Steamer which was operational until 1995 when the boiler broke (we are in the process of getting funding for it) and a 1932 Sanford Hose Cart.

                                we still operate a 1969 American LaFrance Snorkel. We also have our antique for the 1930s, which can still drive and pump.
                                If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!
