Keeps on pump­ing

Rappahannock News - - FRONT PAGE -

A fire truck from the Stan­ley Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment Co., which once be­longed to the Sper­ryville Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment, and pre­vi­ously rolled to emer­gen­cies in Fair­fax County, is now headed all the way to Panama City, Panama.

“It was a very good en­gine,” Stan­ley Fire Chief Terry Pet­tit tells the Rap­pa­han­nock News of En­gine 26, which he said was in “ex­cel­lent con­di­tion” when it crossed the moun­tains from Sper­ryville.

“It did a good ser­vice, and we’ve re­placed it with a newer en­gine, a big­ger en­gine that met our needs,” Chief Pet­tit says. “And it’s still in good shape. It will be great for Panama.”

The fire depart­ment was founded in 1948, and Pet­tit has served as its fire chief for 38 years.
