Aberdeen Fire Department's "Engine 1" was sent to Pennsylvania to be refurbished in 2012.The unit should be ready hopefully by December 2013..Please see the attached pictures below and a little more information. Check back later this year for additional pictures and information.This 1923 American LaFrance Pumper was originally purchased by the
Aberdeen Fire Department on May 17, 1923. The unit was the departments
first motorized unit and served for 31 years, when in 1954 is was sold
to a farm in Cecil County, Maryland. There is served the farm's needs
for 22 years until it was sold to private individual from Anne Arundel
County, Maryland in 1976. It was cared for there for approximately 31
years until today, December 15, 2007 when it was purchased for the
second time by AFD and returned home.
The unit is right hand drive with the gas pedal on the left and brakes
on the right. The brakes are on two wheels only and are the mechanical
type, no air or hydraulics. The 6 cylinder gasoline engine powers the
vehicle through a chain drive. The electrical system is only 6 volt,
which is why the vehicle has an auxiliary hand crank start on the front.
The pump is rated at 600 gpm and is a rotary gear type
