After almost 20 years to the day of faithful service the old Rescue 56 pulls out of the station one last time. She is going to her new home, a department in West Virginia purchased her to replace their damaged rescue truck. She has served us well and with continue to do so with her new owners. Best of luck old girl!
The new rescue 56 has been making some headlines.
Just as the new Rescue 56 project wraps up, the new Engine 561 committee is in full swing. Stay tuned for updates.
For a short time Somerset Fire & Rescue Co. No. 1 will proudly feature all Seagrave Fire Apparatus.
After dealing with many months of painstaking details the new Rescue 56 is in full service. Within a few hours the new rig responded to numerous calls and has been busy ever since. We are expecting many years of problem free service. We are sad to see the old R56 leave us after many years of faithful service. However, we are equally excited to run the new and improved Rescue 56 for many years into the future.
