Bailey Fire Department's first fire truck made it debut at the annual Christmas parade on Saturday after being restored. It was purchased new in 1949 as a first out pumper with 500 gallon per minute pump and 500 gallons of water. It was modified in 1964 to carry 1000 gallons of water. In 1984 it was replaced and removed from service. The restoration project began two years ago. We still have some work to do but the major task have been completed. We would like to thank the community for the support and donations to make this project a success.
