Williamston Fire Department – Williamston, North Carolina

This is the fire department's first motorized pumper. It has been continuously owned by the FD. Approximately 11 years ago, the fire department started sponsoring fund raising events to have the engine restored. The fire department hired Andy Swift to restore the fire truck. Andy completed the restoration in 2017. The department still has the original operator's manual. The department also has a section of steel rail from the railroad depot where the engine was unloaded in town. The engine is on display in town and participates in celebration events.
