President John J. Stretch III

Old Engine and Ladder Make it to their New Home

Our old engine and ladder have made it to their new home at West Cape May Fire Company. West Cape May purchased both pieces of apparatus from the Township and a few of our members, along with a township representative, delivered the trucks this morning. We wish West Cape May luck with our old trucks and are sure they will serve you well for years to come. We will be sure to come by to visit as we make it down the shore this summer!truckstrucks 2
