Singerly Acquires a Hale Pumper

The Singerly Fire Company was ready to upgrade its motorized firefighting equipment in 1927 and after checking out the options the company purchased a Hale Type four 500 gpm pumper (shown below).  This unit responded to every alarm until it was replaced in the 1950s by Oren Pumpers.  This was the third piece of automotive equipment in the company’s inventory.  In the summer of 1914, Singerly acquired a GMC truck  at a cost of $2,800. In 1920 the company purchased another GMC and sold the older unit to Aberdeen.
