Engine One's First Outing: Larchmont Fire Department Picnic

photo essay by Ned Benton

(October 6, 2002) The guest of honor at Sunday's Larchmont Fire Department picnic was Engine One, the 1922 American LaFrance pumper the volunteer firefighters purchased from a Washington collector and returned to Larchmont. This was Engine One's first Larchmont outing under its own steam; its earlier appearance at the Village Memorial Day parade was atop a flatbed truck. The firefighters' children - and the adults - took turns ringing the pumper's bell and crawling over the antique vehicle. Other picnic activities included relay races dressed in old firefighter gear, egg tossing, volleyball and marathon eating.
