The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch
Fire Engine Photos
Vancouver B.C. had two of these 125' Firebird aerial platforms in service at one time. This was the first to be delivered, and is a 1973 year model. Like the first truck, the second Firebird was delivered by the Calavar Corp. in 1976, and both were mounted on the Hendrickson chassis. This truck was photographed well into it's service life, around 1980.
