ATTACK PUMPER

Engine 1/Reserve 10 - 1959 Mack - Springfield, Ohio 
Pictured here is the original "Attack Pumper" in semi-retirement as Reserve Engine 10. The rig was painted safety green after it was scorched at a fire in the late 1970s. The Attack Pumper responded to all working fires in the city with a crew of four or five men following the Jan. 1, 1975 reorganization of the fire division.
