The Steam Pumper and Horse changed fire-fighting by the 1850′s, fought prior with Bucket Brigades that spread hand-drawn water from tubs. The Steam Pumper was able to deliver a continuous water supply. Running Boards were later added to the Steam Pumper to allow fire-fighters to ride to the scene of the fire, rather than run along-side. To compliment the Steam Pumper, Horse drawn Ladder Trucks grew to lengths of 85′, raised and rotated, extending ladders with gears and pulleys that were hand cranked. What evolved by the early 1920′s, were the early Fire Trucks, that carried up to a 1000 gallon tank, delivering water with pumps and hoses.
