1981 Peter Pirsch Custom Built Pumper Tanker (Retired)
If this piece could only talk! Engine 15-3 also known as 15-3 Overland Express was one of the first of its kind to be built. On a Aerial chassis this 2400 gallon Pumper Tanker was just what the Doctor ordered. Equipped with a Hale 1500/20000gpm pump and a Detroit Diesel power plant made it the backbone of the Department for many years as when ordered we actually needed a Tanker and a Pumper due to the Rural coverage we have. She is just a memory to us now as over the years most of our rural area got hydrant coverage and we needed to make room in our small station for our new Pierce Contender. The truck was purchased by Garvin Rural VFD in Garvin, Oklahoma and I only can hope and wish it is serving them as well as it served us!
This van was our old squad, and is used for carrying manpower and our Air-Cascade to calls.
