Busy past couple days for 49 (12 runs).
Units had several interesting calls, including but not limited to a working fire on Monday in Princeton, followed by a brush fire on the tracks off Shalks Crossing Road.

There were 12 Charter members who took part in the organization. The Fire Company was incorporated on February 16, 1960, and on June 18, 1960 the fire company went into full operation. Our first truck was a used 1940 American LaFrance pumper. It was 500 gallon per minute pumper with a 160 gallon booster tank. The booster tank was later increased to hold 500 gallons of water.
We also purchased a Dodge truck with a 1000 gallon booster tank and a 250 gallon per minute rotary pump. A 300 gallon per minute portable pump was donated by Walker Gordon and later mounted on top of the tank of the Dodge. A 1946 Chevrolet pumper was purchased by the fire company from the Forrestal Center and reconditioned.
