Default My recent equipment finds

Like most of you, I have a collection of items related to my particular area of interest. Here are some of the items I've acquired over the past 2 months. Some I bought at second hand stores/thrift shops/junk shops, etc, but most have been given to me via area Fire/Rescue agencies or other fire/EMS collectors.

First set of pictures:

- old tube-type powder fire extinguisher
- old grenade style fire extinguisher
- old Safety Supply Company first aid kit with some vintage supplies
- vintage ARP Fire Warden photo - ARP stood for Air Raid Precautions - WW2 era
- vintage Fisher Price rescue/EMS truck

More photos to come.

Default More stuff

- Vintage First Aid Kit used by a Fire Department - this is a wicker basket covered in canvas and leather - came with vintage supplies as well - this is a really interesting piece!
- old oxygen kit/case - no supplies but in excellent shape - I have the various bits and pieces to make it complete
- old "Plastifol" plastic wound replicas for first aid training - while this company still exists, this is a vintage set from the UK - based on the box graphics and the items I'd say this dates from the 40's
