Default Amazing find

At my fire hall a couple of days ago searching for MSO's or titles for equipment we are getting ready to sell when i came across this treasure trove.
Did not know that any of this stuff was still around. really made my day!

Sadly she does not. Fire company gave that rig to the county to use as a spare.
They used it for a few years, and then it was scrapped.

Default I saved the best for last

Thought that these window signs were long gone. Very happy that they still exist.

Default 1952, 1965 Cadillac YVFC.

Dug these out of my archives. These may already have been posted previously, but it never hurts to post them again. Note the lettering on the front of the 52,
"EMERGENCY CAR". In the background is our first ambulance, 1937 Henny Oldsmobile.

Technical difficulties, lets try this again. Sadly, all of the people in the first picture are no longer with us. Several of the people in the second picture are still with us, but most of them have passed away.
