Jonesboro Fire Department

In 1976 we used our Pierce pumper to celebrate Americas bicentennial. Pierce liked the paint scheme so much they asked us to show it at the Chiefs show in Las Vegas, so four of the guys from our department volunteered to drive it over 1,900 miles from Indiana to the show.

Our truck has seen a lot more miles since then, and is actually still in service. The truck has been used by fathers, sons, and now is even operated by grandsons. In 2005 we moved it to second truck out when we purchased another Pierce, but our red white and blue beauty still passes its pump test year after year.
