Morehead City (NC) Welcomes Historic Fire Apparatus

Morehead City will hold a dedication ceremony for a 1925 American LaFrance fire truck which the city has raised money to purchase from a private collector, reports Carteret County News-Times.

The city launched the “Bring Back the Real Steel” campaign to raise funds to purchase the truck, which was operated by the Morehead City Fire Department until the 1960s.

The city raised about $70,000 through the campaign to purchase the truck. Rodney Kemp, chairman of the fundraising committee, said the truck’s owner cut the city a deal and is selling it for $50,000, so the remaining money will go toward a new fire/EMS museum being planned for downtown.
