When you need to let them know you are on the way!
Tom Rinelli posted an interesting New Jersey rig in his “This ‘N That” blog post:
Roxbury Engine Co# 1, Succasunna (Morris County) NJ – Engine 13
1980 Hendrickson/Continental 1250 gpm/500 gal.
The first (and only) Continental brand apparatus I have ever photographed, this rig features a rear mounted LDH hose reel. Known as “The Pipe Line”, this rig is shown here making its’ last appearance at a wetdown prior to be replaced with a 2011 KME Predator.
A closer look reveals that the rig has a Federal Signal siren (the kind you’d typically find on a firehouse) mounted atop the cab – powered by the onboard generator, the siren was fully functional (and quite loud!!) throughout the wetdown.

This website is devoted to many aspects of firematic photography with a particular emphasis on unique fire trucks (hence the name) whether it’s a unique color, a “one-off job” or a rig with a storied past.
Anyone have a video or sound clip of Engine 13?
