Mini pumpers at World Expo site Vancouver
In 1986, Vancouver B.C. played host to a World Exposition. To provide emergency services to the fair site, Anderson Engineering of Langley, B.C. built three mini pumpers on 1885 GMC Sierra 3500 trucks, and equipped them with 250 IGPM pumps and 150 IG water tanks. After the Exposition was over, the trucks were sold to local fire departments. This photo was taken in early 1986, when the trucks were delivered to the Expo site.
