Speaking of old Holly Springs apparatus, one of the more interesting rigs to serve in our county was this 1986 GMC utility truck that Carolina Power & Light donated to the Holly Springs Department of Public Safety in 1996. Firefighters added a piped waterway and converted the hydraulic auger assembly into a remote-operated master stream. They also added generators and floodlights and modified the air compressor to work with rescue tools. The apparatus was sold two years later to Swepsonville. Can't find my larger version of this picture, alas. No click to enlarge. See other photos of former Holly Springs rigs.
