02/22/15 84 W, 2 I - + 9 - 4 Vintage Photos of Westarea's Ford/Atlas Pumpers

Here's another trip back in time, a pair of Ford/Atlas pumpers that served the Westarea Fire Department in Cumberland County. Engine 102 (later 1032, later 2032) was a 1982 Ford/Atlas in black and Engine 152 (later 1532) was a 1984 Ford/Atlas in red. The black truck was photographed by Jeff Harkey, circa 1990. The red truck was photographed by Lee Wilson on July 7, 1991. What other all-black rigs have served in North Carolina? Click to enlarge:

Mill Spring in Polk County just got a brand new International 4400/KME that is painted black with red striping. I know there’s been a few more black fire trucks over the years but the dept names escape me right now.

Just thought of two in-service trucks in the western part of the state: New River in Ashe County has a F-550 rescue that is black and Nantahala VFD in Macon County has an Amertek 2500L brush engine. Nantahala’s brush engine came from the home of black fire trucks, Mount Horeb,WI. A photo of this rig, from this Youngstown Fire Forums page: http://yngfire.com/index.php?topic=7076...

And from the NFD Facebook page, upon delivery:

I think Pilot FD in Franklin Co. had or has a black rescue truck.
