Madison Indiana Fire Apparatus
I posted photos of the MFD's rigs on the <a href="http://www.rescue-net.com/" target="_blank">Rescue-Net</a> web site in the Photo Post section.
This interesting town is protected by 6 volunteer fire companies, each of which operates apparatus using a different color paint scheme.
Fair Play #1 Yellow<br />Washington #2 Red<br />West End #3 White<br />Walnut Street #4 Kelly Green<br />North Madison #5 White over Red<br />Clifty #6 White over Blue

I believe that Fairplay # 1 is the oldest Fire Company in Indiana.
Are the Fair Play #1 (engine co.) & Walnut Street #4(truck co.)stations still next to each other with a patio area between them?

Fair Play was organized September 15, 1841 and is Indiana's oldest fire company. The firehouses for Walnut Street #4 and Fair Paly are still 30 feet away from another!

"I have a dream. It's not a big dream, it's just a little dream. My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

Another Madison Photo!
I've added another photo on Rescue-Net of the 4 motorized rigs that Washington Fire Co. #2 has operated with from 1916 to present day.
