Engine 67 sold to Cecilton Volunteer Fire Company

Saturday, January 23, 2021
As part of our long-range plan to improve overall service to our community, the Chestertown VFC has made a rather large change. The decision was made to sell Engine 67, one of our Class A pumpers, and eventually replace it with a Rescue-Engine. There is an apparatus committee currently working on the specifications for the new unit. Along with a crew, a Class A pumper carries a pump, water, hose, and a complement of hand tools, and is considered the basic piece of firefighting equipment in any company’s firefighting toolbox.
