I can tell I've lived in town a while now, and loved our fire department the entire time. I recognize each of these fire engines and fondly remember some of the neighbors and friends who have served on our all volunteer, highly trained squad. There is an even older Ruston engine on display at the LeMay Family collection at Marymount. From Phil Parker, Joe Mondeau and Mike Hagen to Don Torbet and Bruce Allen, we have been blessed by so many men and women who give us their hearts to make us a better community.
