On Monday, July 26th, 2021 at 19:27 hours, our 1978 Mack CF 600 was officially placed out of service for the final time as a front line unit. It has been a workhorse for our department for the last 43 years. As of last evening, the unit is still excellent working condition.
It’s last call was on July 9th, a reported vehicle fire in the 200 block of Riverside Avenue.
The last of the portable equipment is being transferred over to the new pumper and then it will remain with us until a decision is made on its future.
Words cannot express the gratitude we have for the quality of the craftsmanship and dedication that went into building, refurbishing, and maintaining this pumper. It has performed flawlessly for its entire career.
