"The Bullet" Joins the Team!

Our most recent addition to the Team is Engine 8, a 1976 American LaFrance Century, 1250 gpm pumper. It was originally purchased by the North Charleston District Fire Department in 1976 and served there until 2003 when it was acquired by the C & B Fire Department. Many thanks to our friends at C & B for making it available to us!

We will use it in our public outreach/educational programs to supplement our flagship, Engine 11, as we work to continue to support our firefighters and their families. It gets its' nickname "The Bullet" from its' ability to really "tote the mail", if you know what we mean!! Keep an eye out for it to be roamng the streets soon!
