Past Apparatus

Engine 1 "The Original"


Purchased by the community in 1954, from Camp Lejune Marine Corps. base in Jacksonville, N.C. The engine served for many years. It was our only truck for 3 years until the members could build 2 new engines. This one pictured is a late model GMC cab over. We are not sure on the size of the tank or the pump, nor do we have information as to what year it is. Believed to be a late1940's model.

Tanker 831


This engine was retired as Tanker 831, it is a 1968 GMC. It had a front mounted 500 gpm pump with a 100' preconnect on each side of the pump. It had a 1000 gallon tank with a rear dump, the Q-siren mounted in the center of the hood was extremely loud. Also it had no break on it and many times you could pull up on-scene and put out the fire, then walk back to the truck and it would still be winding down. The truck was donated to a Chinquapin Fire Department at the North Carolina Coast after Hurricane Fran destroyed some of their equipment from flood waters and winds.
