The apparatus was a four wheeled hose wagon pulled by two horses, Teddy and Dynamite, whose owner Charles Sniffen, was a member of Hose Co. #2.

 

 

On January 13, 1917 the company received its first piece of motorized equipment, a Brockway chemical and h0se truck, replaced in 1931 by a Maxim hose and booster truck.

In 1952 an American LaFrance Pumper replaced the Maxim.

In 1972 a custom built Great Eastern pumper was purchased. It had a self contained foam system.
