GHS Auto Tech Helps Bring Retired Fire Apparatus Back to Life
A seventy-one year old former City of Gainesville Fire-Rescue apparatus was recently located and will be completely restored in the coming year with the help of community members, the city, and the school. The apparatus, formerly #21, is a 1947 American LaFrance pumper truck. The apparatus was in service for the City until 1982. Preparations are already being made for the complete refurbishment of the truck. Plans are to restore the apparatus as close to its original condition as possible.
