After a couple of weeks of negotiations with a fire company in Iowa, we are happy to announce that Engine/Tanker 82 has been sold.
Fire Chief Joe Rowe of the Plymouth Volunteer Fire Company contacted us several weeks ago after finding the unit on the website "Firetec", an apparatus brokerage site designed to help fire departments sell or buy used fire apparatus. The unit was on this site for about one year with hundreds of views and inquiries.
Plans are currently being made for them to come to Maryland during the first week of March and they will drive the unit back to Iowa.
Engine/Tanker 82 has served this fire company and the mutual aid area very well over the last 25 years; and will surely be a great asset to the Plymouth VFD. E/T-82 will be replacing a 1968 Ford Pumper.
