ENGINE RESTORATION

The Nashville Fire Department is currently working to restore its 1948 American LaFrance fire pumper. The 68-year-old fire apparatus was the third piece of equipment purchased by the department. At a cost of $15,000, it served the town and county as a front line apparatus from 1948 until the 1970s. The apparatus is a 700 series model which has a 204 horsepower, 12 cylinder gasoline engine along with a 750 gallon per minute water, or fire, pump.
The American LaFrance fire engine company was one of the most successful and popular fire apparatus companies.

Luke's Word for the Week
Luke's Word for the Week

I love the coast, anyone who knows me knows very well my obsession with the beach, the water, the sand, the salty air - even the stickiness doesn't bother me. I also love history, which could perhaps be the reason the Outer Banks is my favorite place in the whole world. Often times when we are blessed enough to travel east on 64 I consider what it was like for the first Europeans (not explorers, because the Native American had already explored and lived on the coast) to set foot on the shallow shoals that make up the edge of our continent.
