If you know, what is the size of the pump on this appliance? Did it have a water tank and first aid reel? What was the standard crew on a pump this size? A beautiful looking vehicle.

The water tank is under the back seat c40 galls. You can see the hose reel through the rear cab opening.

Apologies for the typing errors in the caption I put to this shot. It's a new computer, and the keyboard is extremely spongy - especially on double letter, eg: been, fitted, etc. The computer itself seems great, but I do need to get a new keyboard.
