Fire Trucks of the 1950s Fire Trucks of the 1950s
by Walter McCall
American motor fire apparatus design reached its high-water
mark in the 1950s. Every one of the nation's major fire
apparatus manufacturers boasted uniquely individual custom
fire truck designs. Unlike the look-alike cookie-cutter
shoeboxes of today, back then a fire fighter could instantly
identify these makes a block away. From conventional Fords
to the custom rigs of fire apparatus manufacturers, all the most
popular, unique, and industry-changing designs and innovations
are featured in this long-overdue tribute to the fire trucks of the
Fabulous Fifties!

Fighting Fire: Trucks, Tools and Tactics
In powerful, on-the-scene pictures and text,
author/photographer Shapiro explores the special
techniques and equipment brought to bear on fires in cities
and suburbs, rural outposts and wilderness, in homes and
industrial structures. He also takes a close look at hair-raising
rescues and other "non-firefighting" tasks that firefighters find
themselves facing. From bold photography and detailed
descriptions of fire fighting to close-up looks at the fire house
and its full array of equipment--trucks, ladders, pumpers, and
tankers--this book conveys both the technical nitty-gritty and
the fiery action of meeting and containing one of nature's
most brutal forces.

Illustrated Encyclopedia of American Fire Engine
In the main this book is an alphabetical listing of dedicated
motor fire apparatus buildersócompanies that designed and
built pumpers, ladder trucks, rescue and other types of motor
fire apparatus in their own factoriesófrom the frame-up on their
own custom chassis or on commercially-available domestic
truck chassis. Also included are a number of commercial
chassis makers such as International, Freightliner, Kenworth
and Peterbilt which forged special alliances with various fire
apparatus builders, and which sometimes made and
marketed fire apparatus under their own names. This
encyclopedia is a vital reference source for libraries, fire
station, historians, fire apparatus enthusiasts, and anyone
involved in or enamored with the fire apparatus industry.
