In 1976 the department purchased a 1976 Ford chassis from Dugan Ford in Springfield, Ohio for $10,640. The body of the truck was purchased from FMC in Tipton, Indiana for $28,248. This was purchased in April 1976 for a total price of $36,888. It featured a 750 gallon per minute John Beam two stage pump and a 750 gallon steel booster tank. This truck had seating for 2 and was equipped with 2    1 ½ “ crosslays, 1000 gallon dump-and-go tank, 1000’ of 2 ½ “ hose, 2 spot lights, 4 SCBA’s, portable generator, 3 10’ sections of 4 ½ “ suction hose, 3 10’ sections of 2 ½ “ suction hose, 24’ aluminum extension ladder, and 14’ roof ladder. This truck replaced the 1948 Chevy in 1976 and called Car #1, later known as Engine #1 and was in service until 1998. This truck was our primary pumper on all of our fires in our area. Some of the major fires this truck pumped at were Honey Creek Baptist Church, Graham South Elementary School, Masonic Lodge which also included the grocery store in Christiansburg, and many other barns and houses in our area. The Ford was sold in 1998 to a small fire department in rural Georgia.
