Looking to dispose of outdated vintage fire equipment?  

  

 Why not donate your equipment to a needy antique fire apparatus organization and help preserve our firefighting history. 

 We have several members in the Pennsylvania / New Jersey / Delaware area that have purchased apparatus and are in need of vintage firefighting gear to equip their trucks. 

 Some of these items are  old hose, nozzles, deck guns, and other items.  Before you throw it out, PLEASE contact us first!!

Contact Eric D. Ruggeri at 484-886-0374
