Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District recently donated a no-longer-needed engine to the East Lincoln County Fire District.
The East Lincoln County Fire and Rescue Board of Directors hosted a dinner on Aug. 21 for SHFAD Fire Chief David Barringer and Sweet Home Fire Board Director Don Hopkins in appreciation of their gift of a fire engine.
The gifted engine is a 1991 Pierce Type 1 engine with an 800-gallon tank and a 1,250 gallon-per-minute pump.
This engine will be stationed in East Lincoln County, and is part of a plan to improve emergency response in that area.
