|The Napa County Fire Department purchased this TeleSqurt through Crown Coach in 1976. It is fitted with a Waterous
1,250 pump, 500 gallon water tank, and 50 foot TeleSqurt mounted to a Pierce body on a Ford C8000 cab and chassis.
This rig is powered by a Caterpillar 3208 diesel motor paired with an Allison Automatic transmission.
In this era, Crown Coach Corp. was the west coast marketing and sales agent for Pierce Fire Apparatus. These rigs
were commonly known for having Crown emblems affixed to them by employees when they arrived in the Crown plant in
Los Angeles for set up prior to delivery.
