This fire apparatus is a 1956 Ward LaFrance triple combination pumper. It features a 750-gpm pump and is powered by a Waukesha engine. The truck was purchased new by the Perry (IA) Fire Department in 1956 and is still in active service as a reserve pumper. Its unit number is 723 but is referred to as “the 750” in reference to the pump. Photo courtesy of Clint Nelsen.
