Photographed on a sunny Sunday morning, here's Engine 5 about to roll on a motor-vehicle accident. It's a 2002 Spartan/Quality Star pumper, at least the ninth Engine 5 since the station opened in 1926. Prior incarnations included: 1997 Pierce, 1990 Pierce (first closed-cab for RFD), 1970 Mack, 1986 Pemfab/EEI (wrecked 1990), 1973 Mack, 1961 American LaFrance, 1951 American LaFrance, and 1925 American LaFrance.
