This Engine was part of Jefferson Townships history. In the early 70’s this was a first due Engine for JTFD1 to calls in Jefferson Township, it was part of many functions, sports events, parades and much more.
Later on, after a commercial vehicle inspection, the truck was taken out of service as it was too much to maintain and equipment was updated with newer trucks and it was sold.
In 2017 We stumbled upon this truck and JTFD1 purchased the truck and is now owned independently by JTFD1.
This is not funded by the township and will be restored 100% independant of the township by donations raised or services offered, we want to add new features to the truck, including one of the brand new emergency light bars!
We would like your help in funding the restoration of the truck, we want to be able to do a complete restoration with new fire truck lights, so we can use it in township functions and show off this piece of history. You can follow along on our website at www.jtfd1.com or Facebook page of JTFD1 https://www.facebook.com/JTFD1/ to track progress once we start getting funds in.
Every little bit counts and we appreciate your help!
