Past Fire Apparatus

1920 Childs Pumper

This being Montgomery #1's first fire engine, it is parked in front of our first firehouse, a bay in the Belle Mead Garage. It was purchased in 1939 for $300.00, from New Egypt, New Jersey. In 1947 this engine was given to our sister company Montgomery #2, Station 46.

1947 Ward LaFrance Pumper

1957 Ford 1000 Gallon Tanker

This tanker was built for us in Bound Brook, New Jersey and carried 1000 gallons of water. It utilized a direct gear pump, capable of 250 GPM.

1966 Maxim Pumper (45-101)

This Maxim pumper served the Montgomery Volunteer Fire Dept. from 1966 to 1990. Today it is restored to its original equipment and is a show winner at any parade!

1967 Dodge Power Wagon (45-141)

Parked in front of our old firehouse on Route 206 is our brush truck 45-141. It was purchased in 1967, and is pictured with its original tank.

1977 GMC E-One Pumper (45-102)

Known in Somerset County as "The White Tornado", 45-102 served the Montgomery Volunteer Fire Dept from 1977 to 1997. During its years with us it was originally used just as an engine. But, when the Dept. purchased the HURST Jaws Of Life, the truck was reconfigured to carry the extrication equipment. Having both fire suppression and extrication equipment on board, made it a very versatile rescue truck.
