50th Anniversary Flashback… the Pierce sold by Fire and Safety Services

Today we go back in the “Way Back” machine… back to the year 1976. The USA is celebrating it’s bicentennial, the tall ships from all over the world float into the New York Harbor for the celebration of our 200th. That same year Fire & Safety Services is in talks to become the sales organization to represent Pierce Manufacturing in Northern New Jersey. With this in mind, in October 1976, a proposal is made to the Marlboro Fire District #2 for a new apparatus. The entire apparatus specification was 8 pages long!!  In 1977, Robertsville Fire Company took of their new 1977 Dodge Mini-pumper. Attached is the proposal and contract for the apparatus. Sorry about the quality, this is a reproduction of a carbon copy hand typed on old typewriter paper
