Our Apparatus


Our old brush truck is a 1968 Dodge Powerwagon.  It's no longer in service and has seen better days, but we are working to restore it as a parade piece. This was an operational unit running calls until October 5, 2001.  It's last call was a mutal aid brush fire with Prince William County off Route 15.


The Powerwagon is currently undergoing an active restoration project.  We hope to bring it back to its original configuration over the next several months.
