Holy acronyms, Batman! That's the Central Carolina Community College Emergency Services Training Center, located outside Sanford and where photographer Lee Wilson this week found a number of retired rigs from around our area. (The training center occupies the site of the old Sanford-Lee County airport, which closed in 2000.)

Shown left to right, top to bottom are Asheboro's 1971 Ward LaFrance pumper, North Chatham's 19?? Ford/Howe pumper, Sanford's 1968 American LaFrance AeroChief (Truck 215), Sanford's 19?? American LaFrance pumper (Engine 216), and Dunn's 1975 Mack/1976 Howe pumper (Engine 1532). See more photos, or see the whole series of his recent Lee and Chatham county explorations.
