02/24/13 89 W, 1 I - + 3 - 5 Chief Keeter and Rescue Squad, February 1961

Here's a News & Observer photo from fifty-two years ago, showing Fire Chief Jack Keeter and Rescue 1 at Station 1. The 1954 GMC panel van was one of two units operated by the Raleigh Emergency Rescue Squad. This one's neat as it shows the relative size of the vehicle. How tall was Chief Keeter? Need to ask one of the old-timers some time. We'll presume he was another six-or-so footer, like so many others of that time. Click to enlarge:

Note the civil defense truck parked in the station that you recently blogged about.
