The Parkertown Fire Company in Little Egg Harbor (Ocean County) Unit 70-02, is this 1975 Dodge Custom 300, 4 x 4 /Pierce mini pumper. It has a Waterous CPK-2, 300 gpm pump and 250 gallon water tank. Features and equipment include 150 feet of forestry hose on a reel on the extended front bumper with a protective railing, 2 ½-inch hard suction hose, a 10 foot ladder, vests, hand tools, a BLS bag and a hose clamp. The hose donuts were simply on the rear running board and because of their weight it was decided not to move them for the photo.
