|The Westminister, California Fire Department purchased this Crown Firecoach pumper in 1970. She served as Engine 4 and
carries serial number F1599 and is powered with a NTF-365 Cummins motor paired with a Spicer 5-speed manual
transmission. She is equipped with a Waterous 1,500gpm pump and 1,000 gallon water tank.
Westminister did not own a ladder truck until 1974 so pumpers carried additional ground ladders on the Engineer's side as
well as the Captain's side where they would be traditionally found.

|Upon being surplused by the city of Westminister, she was sold to the city of Taft in California's central valley. She was
eventually retired by Taft and sold to the Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria, CA where she was used for several more
years in their fire technology program. She was sold by the college in mid-2006 and is now owned by collector Dan Spruill.
