Our Department has a 1970 FMC John Bean High Pressure Fog pumper which we still use for suppression of Brush Fires because you can PUMP AND ROLL with the apparatus to chase the fire through fields and like terrain. 1 firefighter on each side in the back using the pistol grip type booster line. This pump puts out 940 psi. through a 3/4 inch line.
Hi Padre Pete, We also have a 1914 Hallock Chemical truck here in West Farmington Oh. Tom Doyle (owner of The Lil wiz fire museum in Medina Oh) tracked us down last summer. He told us about your truck. Ours too, is the first in the county. West Farmington is 10 miles NE of Warren which is where WD Packard is from, He is one the founders of the Packard autmobile. Tom Doyle said in his 4 years of searching for Medina's Hallock truck he found out that there was 22 built. He knows of only 4 left. Yours, the one he bought in Fl, one in Cali. and ours. Ours has not been refurbed and only work that has been done to it was to keep it in good running order. Her only duty now is to carry the Grand Marshall for our town parade every July.
