Pump 101 - 2000 HME/Smeal Pumper - 1500gpm/1000gal


Pump 102 - 1980 Ford C/Darley - 750gpm/1000gal
This rig was purchased from Coal City, IL which had orange trucks. Since that time, all of Poe's rigs have been painted this unique color scheme.

Tanker 103 - 1982 International S/S&S/1998 Star Stainless - 500gpm/1800gal
This tanker was the truck that started Poe on their unique orange color. This truck was purchased from the Fort Wayne IHC plant. An employee/FF inadvertantly gave the department the wrong paint code for red, so they ended up ordering this color instead. Apparently the codes were changed and he didn't know it. Thus - PVFD has orange trucks!
