Brush 57 of the Applegarth Volunteer Fire Department in Monroe Township (Middlesex County), is this 1986 Dodge Ram 350 with Reading body. It is quartered at the volunteer station on Applegarth Road, which at one time had paid members. This was until a new station was built for the paid staff. The truck has a 4x4 chassis, Hale 250-GPM pump, 250-gallon water tank, one-inch booster reel, two ¾-inch whip-lines and three-inch supply hose. Other features and equipment include a front-mounted winch, a brush cage, Indian tanks, a broom, long tools, spanners, hydrant wrench and spot lights.
