This is a fine example of a Crown Snorkel with a 75' boom that served the San Diego Fire Department.  Purchased new in 1975, she first served as Truck 4 and was assigned San Diego shop number 1330.  Built with Crown Coach serial number F1739, she is powered by a Cummins 855 diesel engine, Allison Automatic transmission and fitted with a 75 foot Snorkel.  She is pictured below serving as Truck 14 in 1993 before being retired.

Here we have a rare look south of the border thanks to Don Pogue.  After being retired by the San Diego Fire Dept, F1739 was purchased by the Tijuana, Mexico, Fire Department where she is serving as T48.
