The Riverside County, California Fire Department purchased 3 identical wide cab Firecoach pumpers in 1980.  The rig pictured
above had just been delivered to the County from Los Angeles and is destined to be assigned to Station 33 in P
alm Desert.  She
carries Crown Coach serial number F1835 and is powered by a Detroit Diesel 8v71TA with an Allison Automatic transmission
and is equipped with a Waterous 1,250gpm pump and 500 gallon booster tank.
Created January 3, 2011
A short two years later, Larry Arnold presents us with another photo of F1835.  
She's still most
ly original but minor changes are starting to appear.
