Apparatus
A veritable "A” to "Z” of antique fire apparatus is on exhibit for your enjoyment and contemplation. Some of the highlights of the collection include:

1731 Newsham Pumper: The oldest documented fire engine in New York State, this lead-lined wooden pumper was, incredibly, a huge step forward in firefighting during its time.

1855 John Rogers Double-Decker Pumper: Deep carving, stained glass lamps and elaborate oil paintings: this apparatus can only be described as exquisite. Add to this that it was one of the most powerful hand engines ever built and you have what we consider a historical treasure.

1928 Ahrens Fox Pumper: With its signature large protruding silver ball, this apparatus would have been coveted by any firehouse lucky enough to have her. Ahrens Fox has long been considered by many  the "Cadillac” of fire apparatus and this handsome pumper personifies that image.

1939 American LaFrance Scout 500 Series: As the design of this apparatus demonstrated so well, the 1930s was a decade full of futuristic art deco design. Although not everyone was impressed with what the future offered, as evidenced by the moniker given to this apparatus by some, "the ugly American.”

These and at least 50 more iconic pieces of fire apparatus are on exhibit at any one time at the FASNY Museum of Firefighting.
