Honoring Our Past - Part II
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter

By Chief Robert Peacock
February 9, 2020

Last week we looked back more than thirty years with three photos of our three front line fire apparatus in 1986. They included Engine 103, a 1984 FMC Roughneck Series with a 1,000 Gallon Tank and a 1,000 Gallon Per Minute Pump. She was named “Chief Ninigret”.

This week, we look back more than fifty years with a photo of the original "Chief Ninigret". She was a 1967 Ford Farrar pumper with a 750 Gallon Tank and a 750 Gallon Per Minute Pump. She was specifically designed and equipped with a bronze pump to allow it to pump salt water from a heavily reinforced dock located at the base of Plimpton Hill in the Watch Hill Harbor.

She served Watch Hill faithfully until being replaced in 1984. She was sold to the Exeter #2 Fire Company where she continued to serve for many years. She now enjoys retirement parked with several other antique fire trucks in the old fire station in Exeter.

The Farrar Company, located in Woodville, a small village in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, built thousands of fire trucks in the New England area since being established in 1933 by Clarence Farrar.
