Huntington Fire Company No. 3 attended three parades and carnivals in Bethany, Beacon Falls and Oxford during the past few weeks, and took home trophies for “Best Appearing Rescue” in Beacon Falls and Oxford.
Huntington Fire members spent countless hours washing, waxing, and detailing every square inch of their brand new Rescue 30 truck to prepare for the competitions.
Officers of Company 3 said they are proud of their membership for getting Rescue 30 ready, as they know it takes a lot of manpower and time to prep these trucks.
“Winning a trophy is the icing on the cake, but just attending the events is where the ‘brotherhood’ and ‘camaraderie’ take place” said Huntington Fire Lt. Jason Mitchell.
