ENGINE 9 our 1947 Federal/Buffalo pumper is finally ready to roll.

The following people spent alot of time working on it.  Jon Faugh, Tyler Grillo,  Kevin Kolmetz, Zach Bucci, Andrew Socola, Sean Brown, Will Stanton, Zach Dubois, Davin Eshelman all contributed not all at the same time. The engine transmission,  and rear axel had to be rebuilt. A new battery & starter installed. The Motorola radio installed in 1952 still works.  The cost for all this came out of Games of Chance profits.


We have responded to 300 calls in 2021
