Event the best things need some TLC every now and then. Chief Engineer Corey Gressley and Lieutenant Rob Shafer began the process of removing the water tank from our 1949 L Model Mack pumper this past weekend. The all steel tank developed a hole after nearly 70 years of holding water. In a commitment to keep the 49′ functional, a new tank will be fabricated and the pump will be checked to ensure continued operation. The 70th anniversary of the 49′ will be celebrated throughout the year with public appearances and the sale of some collectible items. Stay tuned for more info!!!
