New York City Orders 12 Pumpers

New York City has ordered twelve pumping engines of 1,000 gallons capacity for special service in the high hazard, hotel and department districts. Under a special act of the Board of Aldermen, the appropriation for the twelve engines, was allowed without competitive bidding—each piece not to cost more than $14,000.

The Fire Department allotted the order as follows: Seagrave 8, American La-France 2 and Ahrens-Fox 2.

The department will be in the market again for a similar number of pumpers in 1933.
