Orland FPD history

This from Mike Summa for #TBT:

For TBT – With the 50th Anniversary of the Orland Fire Protection District this year, here is a glimpse of their pre-district days.  It is a tanker built on a 1940’s International chassis.  If anyone knows more information, please feel free to inform.

This from Mike Summa:

This is Orland FPD’s E6083.  It started life I believe as a 1971 American LaFrance 1500/500.  As the picture shows it was rehabbed in 1988 with a Century 2000 cab.  Please enjoy and comment.
