    Default Firefighting Trailer

    This seems to be a pretty good idea for private/industrial firefighting.
    Looks like it would have pretty much everything for small fires and rescues.

    I would like to know if any FD's actually bought one of these trailers. Who would really need this? its so limited it what it can do, its almost useless.

    I think it's geared more for private fire brigades.

    A new concept in fire fighting support that can be pulled by an ATV, golf cart, pickup or car.
    I found this statement ( from the website listed ) rather amusing. As the saying goes, "nothing is new...most of the time reinvented" by someone who does not remember their history.

    Thousands of these were mfg. during WWII for cities here and abroad, and...actually did some fire-fighting contrary to popular belief. No huge, custom apparatus with strobes and Q's needed, only something to drag it to the scene.

    Here are but just a few examples;

    Maxim made a lot of those fire trailers during the war years, Still a few of them tucked away around New England.

    Smile F/F Trailers

    I should have bought one years ago when I had the chance. Now they are becoming a "collectors item" ( about like anything else over 50 )...except for ole dandies like me... It would be great to have one to take to parades, etc., as an example what they used when times were tough, during and immediately after the War Years.
