This 1967 Ford F-350 Mini-Pumper was the department's first fire unit. It was donated by West Polk Fire & Rescue before our deparment was chartered. It served the deparment with distinction until 1995 when it was replaced by Claxton Engine 7205. It had a 250 g.p.m. p.t.o. pump and carried 300 gallons of water.
This 1964 GMC Hahn Fire Engine was the third unit in service with our department. It was bought by McMinn County from the Etowah Rescue Squad for our department. It served in our fleet from 1992 until 1999 when it was replaced by Mini-Pumper 7202. It had a 750 g.p.m. pump and carried 1,000 gallons of water.
This 1982 Chevrolet Van was utilized by CCVES as the primary rescue unit and personnel carrier from 1993 until replaced by Rescue 7207 in 1999. This unit was received from the McMinn County Rural Fire Department, Inc. as it had been the previous McMinn County Wide Fire Chief Coordinator vehicle. It carried the department's rescue hand tools and other rescue equipment.
This Chevrolet Pickup was utilized by CCVES as the primary rescue unit and service truck from 1999 until being replaced by Squad 11 in 2004. This unit was received from the US Government Surplus as it had been a previous fire unit in the US Marine Corps. The vehicle carried the department's rescue hand tools and other rescue equipment.
CCVES operated this 1985 Ford 1,800 gallon tanker until replacing the tanker in January of 2006. This chasis was donated to our department by Mayfield Dairy Farms (a division of Dean Foods, Inc.) a local milk and ice cream company. The tank had been in service with our department since 1992. It was originally on a 1978 International chasis and was removed and placed on this chasis in 1996.
