The Edson Fire Department’s old 1984 engine is being reunited with its 1983 counterpart.

Last week, The Town of Edson Fire Department donated unit 606, a 1984 Superior Pumper Unit, to Parkland College. Previously, EFD donated their 1983 engine to the same school for use in fire and mechanical training.

Following a fleet review, it was determined the old engine was no longer required by the Town. In 2016 EFD brought in a new 3000gal Tender Unit, which is also a certified pumping apparatus.

Parkland College was excited to receive the truck and will maintain Edson decaling to ensure the support is recognized for years to come.
