Lawrence Park Adds a Truck
The department in Lawrence Park Township, Pa., which serves a population of about four thousand, and whose fire loss record over the past five years amounts to less than five hundred dollars, purchased a combination ladder, hose and booster truck. It carries 186 feet of ladders, a 100-gallon booster tank, a 100 gpnt pump, with a connection for drafting from wells or hydrants, and 400 feet of 2 1/2-inch hose.
In addition to this truck, the town ship now has one 750-galion pumper equipped with a 100-gallon booster tank, and a 350-gallon pumper. The department is composed of twenty-five volunteers and a Chief. Each fireman has a six-inch Gantewell tapper in his home connected directly to the fire alarm system.
