Los Angeles Orders $1 Million in Apparatus
What is believed to be the largest single order for fire apparatus in the western United States was recently placed when the Los Angeles City Fire Department authorized purchase of $1,040,084 worth of equipment.
The new equipment will consist of 26 triples and six 100-foot aerials. All are to be delivered within a year, mostly for the replacement of obsolete equipment.
Funds will come from the fire department bond issue approved last May. The same bond issue also provided for the construction of many new stations and replacement or relocation of old fire houses.
