08/09/15 106 W, 1 I - + 9 - 5 Vintage Photo - Guilford County Spill Control Unit

This vintage gem was posted to the SPAAMFAA Facebook group last month. From the collection of Scott Mattson, who posted the image. Guilford County Fire Rescue operated this 1958 Chevrolet tanker. Served as an "oil spill control unit." Recall from our prior posting (in 2009!) that the county fire department was created circa 1965, to protect what was called the Greensboro-High Point Regional Airport. Don't know the date of this photo. Maybe late 1960s or early 1970s? Also, wonder what year the airport took over fire protection? Readers can perhaps help there. Click to enlarge:
