Retired Engine 1

1950 International Howe — This apparatus was built in nearby Anderson at the since-closed Howe Fire Apparatus company. This was the department’s first new fire engine, delivered in 1951 when the department was founded. This engine had been sold and just recently purchased back by the department to be used in parades. The hose bed has been modified by replacing the wood floor and adding two wood benches along each side to allow seating during parades.
