- “For the want of a nail the shoe was lost, For the want of a shoe the horse was lost, For the want of a horse, the rider was lost, For the want of a rider, the battle was lost.”
- For the want of a nozzle the hose was lost, For the want of a hose, the pumper was lost, For the want of a pumper, the town was lost.

With fire losses showing a decided increase everywhere these days, what greater mistake can a city or town make than to delay the purchase of needed fire equipment?
