SUMMERVILLE, SC – With the renewal of the license agreement between American LaFrance and Code 3 Collectibles, fire truck enthusiasts can be assured that new Code 3 American LaFrance collectible fire trucks will be available for years to come.
One of the first trucks to enter the market as part of the new agreement will be the “Pink Ribbon” model fire engine to honor the brave service of women firefighters. The “Pink Ribbon” engine is a replica of the San Francisco Fire Department’s American LaFrance Eagle pumper, which includes the fire department’s 100th anniversary logo and a pink ribbon on the grille.
In support of Code 3’s initiative, American LaFrance has waived all royalties generated off the proceeds of the sale of the “Pink Ribbon” engine to contribute toward Code 3’s donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
