1956 Ward LaFrance Triple Combination Pumper

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.
