1974 Dodge Air Unit / Emergency Support Unit
This unit was purchased in September of 1973 and outfitted with six 200 cubic inch cylinders for an air cascade system. The unit also served as a backup ambulance and was equipped with cabinetry for medical supplies. It also had a squad bench for the transport of patients.
The unit was placed in service in February of 1974. It answered its first alarm on February 17, 1974 for a three alarm house fire on Route 440 in the Dublin area of Harford County.
When the temporary fire station was opened in 1976 in Forest Hill, this unit was relocated to that station so that the fire company members who resided in that area could respond to fires.
The unit was retired as an air unit in 1986 and continued to serve the fire company as a utility vehicle and then as a coffee wagon for the Ladies Auxiliary. The unit was placed out of service in 1990 and sold at the Bel Air Auto Auction.
