Peter Pirsch & Sons Open Cab Pumper - Waukesha Fire Department, WI

Limited Edition of 1148 Models Worldwide


In 1892, the Simmons Company of Kenosha, Wisconsin burned to the ground, despite the best efforts of the local volunteer firefighters to save the structure. A wagon maker at the time, Peter Pirsch vowed that firefighters would be better equipped in the future. Three years later, in 1895, the first horse drawn hose cart for Kenosha rolled off the assembly line. Due to its proximity to the manufacturing plant, Waukesha, and other midwestern cities, were purchasers of Pirsh fire apparatus. This Peter Pirsch & Sons Open Cab Pumper lettered for the WFD was delivered on March 7, 1949 with serial number 1830.

The Corgi "Heroes Under Fire" range includes high quality, ready-made, die-cast models of fire and rescue apparatus. Every model is crafted using specifications of the original vehicle. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.

This model of a Peter Pirsch Open Cab Pumper features:

  • Die-cast metal body
  • Historically accurate printed markings
  • Detailed driver's cab
  • Replica firefighting equipment
  • Rolling wheels with synthetic rubber tires
  • Numbered collector card
