04/03/13 86 W, 1 I - + 3 - 1 Looks a Little Like "Emergency!"

Lee Wilson this week snapped this photo that recalls the rigs of a certain classic television series. That's former Stony Creek Rescue 45 and former Nasheville Engine 142, a 1971 Ward LaFrance. They're used for training at Nash Community College. See more photos, part of a larger set of past and present Nash County fire and rescue apparatus. Now for our daily question, how many departments ran Ward LaFrance rigs from era? Let's see... Charlotte, Durham, Fayetteville, who else?

High point, Winston-Salem, Lexington, Brevard, and Conover ran Ward LaFrance Ambassadors as well at one time or another.

Believe it or not we still have 2 at Asheboro Fire Dept. We have a 1966 Ward LaFrance 85’ snorkle and a 1976 Ward LaFrance engine. Both trucks are reserves but still fully operational.
