The city is helping sell antique fire trucks on behalf of the Firefighters Museum Society of Calgary, which no longer wants them.
The trucks include: a 1925 model from Denver (CO), a truck from Nanaimo, B.C., and a truck based at a Canadian air force base.
Carol Henke, who speaks for the Calgary Fire Department, said a wide range of museums, groups or even individual collectors might be interested in bidding.
While the museum is willing to donate the trucks, Henke said all reasonable bids will be considered.
The old trucks were acquired over the years with a view to opening a national firefighters museum in Calgary.
But now the non-profit society is focusing on Calgary’s history and wants to put the proceeds from the trucks towards restoring vintage Calgary Fire Department items.
