Throwback Thursday: Our First Fire Truck

The first equipment for the MFD was a Brockway fire truck that was acquired on September 18, 1915. Later in 1925 the department purchased its first modern truck, a Buffalo Larabie (pictured) with 500 gallon-per-minute triple combination pumps. As for the membership, Charles Winter became the first president and the Millard Cooper became the first Chief. Chief Cooper’s garage was used as the first firehouse located on Hillside Ave, right around the corner from our present location.
