In 1927 the City of Mulvane purchased a Boyer Fire Apparatus Chemical Unit on an International Truck for the cost of $5,115.00, this was the first motorized fire truck for the department. At some time the chemical tanks were removed and a water tank was added in their place.
February 8th, 1928 Fire Engineering magazine shows an advertisement for the International Harvester Company. Pictured is a fire engine for Hays, Kansas (L) and Mulvane Fire Department Engine #1. Fast, economical, capable trucks for modern fire fighting.
This ad was recently (10-2005) brought to our attention from a member of the Hays Fire Department. Fire Engineering Magazine was kind enough to research it for us and send us a copy of the advertisement. www.fireengineering.com
