By Department Historian Ricky Brown
January 5, 2021

This 1930 Seagrave Suburbanite pumper was purchased with funds raised by members from bootlegging during prohibition. The homebrew was stored in the bell tower of the 1890 era firehouse.
While the former building is long gone, the bell that is the only surviving witness of this activity, remains restored in the front of our building.
This history is not necessarily something to be proud of, however the story of dedication of serving our community certainly is.

Additional information:
Originally delivered without a booster tank, a 55 gallon drum was later added to serve this purpose. Only having 2 seats, it wasn't uncommon for a dozen firemen to be aboard when responding to a call.
This unit was reported to be what fireman James E. Yohe rode for his last call before succumbing to injuries sustained at a fire.
Newspapers reported that the Seagrave salesman of this apparatus was killed in an accident while in Lancaster County within the following year while on work.
The whereabouts of this piece of apparatus is unknown. Its last confirmed location was at the Golden Spike Restaurant in Delroy in the 1970's. The serial number is believed to be 61140. Please contact us if you have any information from after this time frame.
