Odessa's Fire Trucks

 

 

 

 

 

Engine 1
1927 Buffalo

This was our very first fire truck and carried a heavy-duty high pressure water pump, a chemical tank with special hose, hook and ladder equipment and an adequate supply of large size hose. A total of 5,000 feet of hose was available for emergencies. At the time, the chemical apparatus would be the main reliance for combating small fires, as the new municipal waterworks system had not been completed. The water pump could be used in the event of fires in the business section by drawing water from storage tanks at the Ector County Courthouse, or at the railroad station.

This fire truck was later painted "Fire Engine Red" as you can see in the photo on the right.
