|The City of San Fernando, CA purchased this Crown Firecoach new in 1963. She was assigned Crown Coach serial
number F1315 and powered with a Hall-Scott 1091 gasoline motor with a 5-speed manual transmission. As built, she
was equipped with a 1,250gpm Waterous pump, 400 gallon tank, and fitted with a 65 foot Snorkel.
The Snorkel failed its annual certification test early on and the City opted not to make the repairs and had the unit instead
removed in June 1978. This resulted in an unusual looking extra long pumper that had no shortage of ground ladders.
