"Fire Wagon"

One of the more interesting fire vehicles you might have seen around town was the Greenbrier "fire wagon" of the Menasha Fire Department.  Featured in the July 1962 Friends magazine, the vehicle was outfitted with emergency equipment that included a resuscitator, oxygen bottles, portable generator, portable hydraulic press unit, grappling and drag hooks and other supplies likely to be needed at a fire.

(Friends magazine was a Chevrolet publication for distribution by dealers as a giveaway to promote car ownership, and articles often featured interesting places to visit in your Chevy vehicle.)
