|The Santa Monica Fire Department purchased this Crown TeleSqurt in 1980 where it first served as
Engine 3. This was also the first rig that Santa Monica purchased that was painted in the experimental
color of lime yellow. She is fitted with a Pierce body, 75 foot TeleSqurt, 1,500gpm Waterous pump
and 300 gallon booster tank. She is powered by a Detroit Diesel 8v71 with an Allison Automatic
transmission and carries Crown Coach serial number F1826 and Pierce serial number E0340. Santa
Monica donated this rig to its sister city, Mazatlan, Mexico in 1995 where it was delivered by Navy
hovercraft. Photo from eBay by Keith Cullom.
