A Blast from the Past

We received a random message from a James Wensell, who had come across a great parade picture of one of our old apparatus and he decided to share with us. He and his friend Joe attended many parades in the 80's and 90's so this picture was taken at one of them. We're sharing it here because it's just a nice reminder of our past and other members remember it, as "a beast and lots of fun to drive." It was also a fine piece of fire equipment The following is brief description of the truck:

1988 GMC TopKick / National
Foam 1250 GPM
750 Gallons Water
250 Gallons Foam

Photo taken in the late 1980's by Joe Hloucek

She was the workhorse of the fleet for a number of years. She was fun to drive…once she got moving, just don’t try to stop - because she didn’t know how to.
