Beaver Island Volunteer Fire Department gets a new Tanker Truck
The Beaver Island Volunteer Fire Department recently acquired this 79 Ford 3,500 gallon diesel tanker from Saugatuck. It will replace the 66 Army 6x6 1,800-gallon tanker at the Fire Station, which needs work. The Island Fire Departments fifteen volunteers now have 5 trucks, a 2001 International Pumper being their prize. Another truck that was sold off the Island over ten years ago after more than twenty years here has been restored by some Fire Engine buffs in Plainwell, who let us know that for the right price it could rejoin the fleet.
