Antique Apparatus - Part 4

Irondale Fire & Rescue

Last year, the City of Irondale reacquired the first new engine the city owned and began the process of restoring it. Chief Davis and the firefighters at Irondale put a lot of time and sweat into restoring the engine back to it's original state with help from St. Clair Correctional.

Now that the restoration is complete, Irondale has a beautiful new show-piece that, not only the fire department but, the entire city can be proud of.

The apparatus is a 1961 American LaFrance "900" Series with a 12 Cylinder Dual Ignition, "J" Series Engine, 4 Speed Manual Transmission w/ low range.

I want to say a special word of thanks to Chief Davis and Brad Doss for the tour of the apparatus and to Chief Davis for all the time he spent arranging the apparatus for the following photographs.
