West Jordan firefighters have pooled their own money to buy a former fire department’s truck back, reports The City Journals.
The 80-year-old engine has been auctioned off and sat in a garage for 40 years. It was offered to West Jordan City, but there wasn’t enough interest or funding.
The fire engine is in need of repair as neither engine nor water pump work. The body has rust and peeling paint. Some of the features are made of wood and are deteriorating. The group is hoping some people will donate to their cause to fix some of the high-ticket items.
