REO Fire Truck Image

One of Keene's firt motorized fire trucks - a 1923 REO that is now in storage - is in need of brake work, replacement of its wooden spokes, and some transmission repair.  After its retirement from the Fire Department this vehicle was a fixture for years in many parades and community events.  It was always a favorite of both the young and old.  We would like to get this truck back in action and rolling in our many community events.

We appreciate any help you can give us to get this historic truck running again.

This program seeks to enhance the appearance of Keene while building a sense of pride and community spirit.  If you are interested in participating or getting more information, please contact us or fill out our online form.
