    Default In search of a 1971 Ford/Swab Heavy Rescue

    Everyone, I am assisting a friend in trying to locate this piece of apparatus, which is believed to have been sold to a department in New York state somewhere, not exactly sure. It is a 1971 Ford/Swab Rescue, formerly of the Aberdeen, Maryland Fire Department (Harford County Company 2). If anyone knows the current whereabouts of this unit, please reply here or private message me. THANK YOU. Photo credit- Mr. Robert Kimball

    AN UPDATE:

    It has been learned that the truck was sold to the Trumansburg, NY Fire Department. It was replaced with a rescue pumper in 2001.

    Sometime in 2000 or 2001, the Ford/Swab rescue was sold to Cornell University, where their water plant used it for approximately 2 years. Current disposition and whereabouts is unknown.

    Given these clues, is a light popping on in anyones head in central New York state? Does anyone have any pictures of it in service in Trumansburg???? Any leads at all are appreciated!!!!!!
