This engine was just acquired in 2017 and we are very excited about it! We purchased her from a Company near Philadelphia PA from some really great people! This engine is our first out vehicle to structure fires."

Our tanker, a Kenworth, may look like a milk truck, but she serves us well! She was built specifically for us in 2006 in Michigan. Her tank holds 2,160 gallons of water. A tanker is a must in a community like ours that does not have hydrants!"

One of our two squads, 805, is a 2010 Ford. She was built in Georgia for us. It is primarily used for brush fires, but it also holds medical equipment and other important tools."
