GENERAL INFO:  This unit replaced the 1953 Ford/Oren Pumper and was placed in service February 28, 1987.  With a purchase price of $187,000, this unit (50-2) was had the largest tank and pump capacity in the Harrington Fire Company fleet.   This unit was dedicated to Past Chief C. Douglas Mills.  A plague was placed on this truck that read "Tanker/Pumper 50-2 Placed In Service 1987, In Memory of C. Douglas Mills, Who Serviced as Chief From 1950 - 1962".  For the first years of being in service firefighters were able to ride on the backstep as the truck came equipped with a safety bar.   Even though this unit was designed to be a front line pumper if needed it was rarely used as such.  50-2 was sold and was placed out of service in late May 1, 2023.
