Fire Apparatus - Pumpers

There are now three pages of pumpers. Just click the "More Pumpers" at the bottom of page one to view the next pumper page. Being the most common piece of apparatus, pumpers are the most numereous of all field pieces and come in all shapes and sizes as you can see from these pages. I have aver a hundred pumpers posted for your viewing enjoyment. Last updated December 11, 2002

This 1991 KME belongs to Aetna Hose Volunteer Fire Company in Newark, Delaware. KME apparatus are few and far between.

E-35 is a 1976 American LaFrance that probably one of the oldest pieces with the Annapolis (MD) Fire Department.

Since they are located in Annapolis, MD I guess I'll post the U. S. Naval Academy's equipment on the first pages. Be sure to check out their ladder on the applicable page. This is a 1990 Simon-Duplex pumper assigned to the campus fire station. The crew on duty the day I visited had some pretty good stories to tell about some of the pranks the midshipmen pulled.

Stationed at the naval base across the river from the Naval Academy is this KME pumper. We could not find a year for it so if anyone knows please pass this on to me. Many thanks for the shirt and patch, they are treasured being a former naval aviator (air crew).

This beautiful 1981 American LaFrance is the first out engine of the Arkwright Area, SC fire department outside of Spartanburg.

Another beautiful relic in top condition is this 1984 American LaFrance pumper belonging to the Arkwright Area fire department. Note the enclose rear compartment.

Avondale, PA is located in mushroom country in southeast Pennsylvania. Lime green is their choice of colors on this Hahn pumper. Don't forget those two patches guys. I'm the guy who left two Avondale, LA patches.

Baltimore/Washington International (BWI) Airport is the operator of this brand new 2001 American LaFrance. Surprizingly BWI has an very good selection of equipment from crash trucks, to a pumper, to a rescue squad. Check out the other pages for more of BWI's equipment. Check out their "red" crash trucks on the Miscellaneous page.

Very sharp looking paint scheme on this 2000 HME/New Lexington pumper belonging to the Birdsboro Fire Company in Birdsboro, PA. Truck was posed on the local high school driveway and what a view.

It was a nice windy day overlooking the valley below. Birdsboro's (PA) second out pumper is this 1988 Spartan on a Pirsch chassie.

A very nice looking 1986 Pierce Arrow belonging to Station 71 in Blades, Delaware. The stations newest piece was at a Christmas parade the day I visited, but I was very impressed with what I shot that day.

Goodwill Fire Company of Bridgeport, PA is the owner of this 1988 KME pumper. Check out the Miscellaneous page for a view of their traffic control vehicle.

This is one of the sharpest pumpers I have come across in a long time. The color scheme reminds me of the CNW railroad or the Green Bay Packers football team. Bryn Mawr (pronounced Brin Mar) Fire Company in Bryn Mawr, PA just outside of Philly is the owner of this 1997 KME and they have a twin as well. Check out their beautiful E-One ladder on the ladder page.

The Cambridge (MD) Fire Department operates this 2001 Pierce Lance and is one of several beautiful pieces at their main station.

Engine 1 is another nice piece from Camden, SC fire department. E-1 is a 1997 Pierce Saber.

I may be mistaken, but I think E-5, a 1975 Mack R-600, is a pumper but it could be a tanker. Either way it look good.

Established in 1802, the Carlisle Fire Company in Milford, Delaware has an excellant assortment of Hahn apparatus, but in 1998 decided to try Seagrave as seen here with engine 42-4. This is a very nice addition to your fleet of apparatus.

One of the city apparatus of Chester, PA. This 1989 Pierce Dash is in a tough area south of Philly. Be safe guys.

I drove all the way to Cleveland, North Carolina that is, for this shot. The firemen just returned from a Sunday call and were nice enough to spot their truck for me. This is a 1998 American LaFrance manufactured at the American LaFrance factory just down the highway from their station and no they did not get a discount.

A 1994 KME/Freightliner fills the bill as the second engine for the Cleveland, North Carolina fire. Thanks to Travis for the tour of the ALF museum and a member of the Cleveland fire department. Unfortunately the pics I took sucked because of the lighting.

No matter if they are red, yellow or white the CF Series Macks look very traditional. Engine 14-2, a 1984 Mack, is assigned to Station 1 in Cranston Heights, Delaware located on the outskirts of Wilmington.
