Wheaton Fire Department history

This from Mike Summa:

This is the Wheaton Fire Dept.’s E402.   A 1970’s Seagrave with unknown specs.  I do not know a thing about Wheaton, so feel free to fill in the blanks.  Picture is from a fire muster in Wheaton in the early 90’s.

Wheaton Fire Department history

this from Stephen Wilcox:

Here’s an ancient rig. 1959 Ward LaFrance 1,000 gallon. I remember that the shift was a non-synchromesh. I only knew one engineer who could drive it without using the clutch. Wheaton had two of them in early sixties. Quite a vehicle.
