Congrats on your new Mack. Most Connecticut fire departments take good care of their apparatus so I assume that this engine is in great shape in spite of its age.

We haven't heard any news from Yocum Creek in a while; did you get the '87 Mack repaired and back in service? Good luck with the new one.

Joes Mack are you from Evarts, KY? My wife's sweet great aunt Gloria (Glorie) who passed last year was from Evarts. I travel through Harlan, Cawood, and Lynch to visit her kin when I'm on business up that way as often as I can. I grew up not 20 miles from Stamford CT where it appears this rig came from. If I can ever be of assistance please let me know.

There was a recent article in the "Stamford (CT) Advocate" that reported on the donation of the former Cromwell, CT Engine 9, a 1976 Mack "CF" pumper, to the

Yocum Creek Volunteer Fire department. Unfortunately, I can't get the link to attach here. It's a good story; congratulations to Don and Mark.

Joe, we're going to need photos of Engine 1 and Engine 2 together when they are both back in service.
