|The Tucson, Arizona Fire Department purchased two pumpers from Crown in 1962. Pictured here is Engine 2
which carries serial number F1278 and is powered by a Hall-Scott 1091 gasoline motor with a Fuller 5-speed
manual transmission. F1278 is fitted with a Waterous 1,250gpm pump and 400 gallon booster tank.
As the years passed by, the hard suction trays were removed and replaced with SCBAs as Tucson's arid
climate doesn't allow for much drafting. A canopy was also added as well as hideous siren speakers on either
side of the cab. Maybe they were just temporary...
