Ladder and Hosepipe Truck

Moved by human traction, it had a wooden body and iron wheels and was built in the company’s workshops in 1937. 
You can find this piece at the second part of the Museum surrounded by other equipment of the Fire Network. 

The fire service was created in 1924 with the aim of preventing and fighting fires at CARRIS facilities. 
For this purpose it had a Fire Network, armed with bombs, fire extinguishers, boxes and buckets of sand, stairs and hose cars and, since the 1940s, a Network of Sprinklers.
