A note to Dave Fornell:


A trivia question for the group.

Does anyone know (what year and maybe what size) when the booster tank was added to the Engine Companies of some major cities?

Maybe, FDNY, Chicago, LA and any others that we may be able to get info on.

To my recollection, some of the “city service” rigs tanks were in the 300 gallon version.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
