Fire Truck, 1967

Caption from 1967: “Firemen prepare to give the village’s new 1,000 gallon pumper its shakedown run. The diesel-powered fire truck with a 5-man cab was delivered last week. The $30,000 rig was financed by revenue from a levy passed by voters in 1965. The New Carlisle [fire] department now has two pumpers and an equipment truck.”
