09/27/09 132 W, 1 I - + 9 - 10 Fort Bragg Fire Department, 1951

Here's a treat from the North Carolina State Archives, a panoramic photo of the Fort Bragg Fire Department in 1951. Call number N.2006.7.16. Caption reads "Presentation of National Fire Protection Association award to Fort Bragg Fire Dept. by Lt. General John W. Lenand, Fort Bragg, NC." The photo is dated March 30, 1951. The photo is numbered 3553 by Rell Clements.

There 57 members pictured, if counted correctly. Left to right, the vehicles are: chief's car, alarm maintenance truck, two small trucks, stake truck (?), six pumpers, an equipment or crash truck, and a second chief's car. Wonder how many fire stations they had? And are these all full-time firefighters? Perhaps our military readers can add some history or perspective. Click once or twice to enlarge.
