Explosives removal was originally handled by the crew of Engine 45. Here the 1952 Mack hose tender of the 45's is pulling the original explosives removal trailer while the 1961 Seagrave engine follows. This photo was taken at Hilton - Davis Chemical Company 2235 Langdon Farm Road in Pleasant Ridge. A long, bitter strike resulted in several bomb runs to the plant in the summer of 1970.
