    Talking Depends on your definition of antique

    Depending on your definition of antique, we are probable still running some. Currently have a 1956 Dodge powerwagon still in service.

    We have a 195? Oren in service still, but its not seen a run in ages. The Orens days are numbered less than a week, next Monday its out and our new/used aireal is here. The only reason why we still have the Oren in service cause its mandatory to have a banger ladder or something, I guess cause of some of the Apartment buildings in our area. I will post pictures of the truck next week when we get it, its a 197? Sutphen refurb aireal

    Well, age doesn't really matter, I guess. They use to make the thing to last forever.

    We have a 1922 Seagrave 65 foot water tower that is not in service. It is resting the the rear bay at station 20, where by all guesses will be there when those guys are all retired. We also have a 1970 OREN/GMC 1500 gallon mobile water aupply. Really it is a tanker by East Coast standards. On the West Coast a tanker is something the flies in the air and drops water on open land fire events.

    It still runs for brush calls and those out on the interstate highways. A new one is being ordered and will replace the older one.


    Stay Safe & Well out there.
