ORIGINAL N.L.R.F.D. STATION 8 CONSTRUCTED IN 1961
CLOSED AS AN ACTIVE FIRE STATION IN APRIL, 2002 (P(Photo by Lee Clark)
The Original NLR Fire Station #8, which opened in 1962. The pumper is the 1959 American La France,
which had just received a new paint job in 1982 or '83. Notice what is occupying the closed bay.
The 1946 Seagrave Aerial was in reserve (It never had an official number as a reserve as far as I knew.) (Photo by Lee Clark) Another interesting photo of the First Station 8 of the NLRFD. This photo was taken in 1976 or 1977.
The 1955 Seagrave was filling in as a Reserve for Engine 8's regular apparatus, the 1961
International/Central. The 1947 American La France was stationed at Station 8 as a Reserve, but was the
oldest reserve pumper owned by the NLRFD then. Two of the NLRFD'S reserve pumpers at the time were
photographed in this picture. The 1955 Seagrave was "First Out" as a reserve. The 1951 Seagrave was
kept primarily at the Drill Tower as the "Training Truck." (
