The truck was acquired from broker, Brindlee Mountain Fire. It was the culmination of several months of hard work and dedication by nine committee members. Last summer select members made the trip south to Union Grove Alabama to run and test the equipment before making the purchase.
Firefighters have been training on the pump and will soon start driver training before the engine goes into service. Once in service it will be the first responding piece of equipment out the door.
During the open house, other pieces of apparatus were on also display, as well as, preparedness materials, historical department photos, and a children's raffle. Hot refreshments and pastry were much appreciated on the chilly wintry day.
Montague Center Fire Department was incorporated in 1941, currently has 30 members and is 100% volunteer.
