06/03/10 105 W, 1 I - + 10 - 11 Cary's Old Service Truck

Photographer Lee Wilson last week found a former Cary rig, recently relocated to the Blue Ridge Mountains and serving the Parkway Fire Department in Mitchell County. PFD was created in 2001 as a merger of Altapass (1984-2001) and Grassy Creek (1964-2001) fire departments. That's near Spruce Pine, which itself absorbed Estatoe FD (1988-2003). Anyway, back to the rig. The 1995 Seagrave/Marion service truck was received by the department in April. It's designated as Rescue 2. Wonder what other old local rigs can be found in the western part our state. See all of Lee's photos from his recent trip.

Good looking rig. I am pretty sure this truck was at Brindlee Mountain in Alabama a few months back. I was there on some apparatus business and got a chance to look at it before it made the trip to Parkway.
