Inscription.  

A fire in the mine is a potential major disaster as smoke and toxic fumes are spread by the air ventilation current present in every mine. The equipment is mounted on two cars and can be moved quickly along the mine tracks to any location in the mine. In addition to fire fighting equipment, this unit also carried first aid equipment. This mobile fire fighting equipment was donated by Beltrami Enterprises, and came from the Huber Colliery in Ashley.

 
Erected by Lackawanna County.
