Star Hose Company, Port Allegany, PA
After several weeks of training, members of The Star Hose Company placed our new engine in service today, replacing “Engine 33,” a 1988 Pierce Arrow. Engine 33 served faithfully for over 34 years, responding to countless fires throughout the region, and was the last open cab fire apparatus in service across a wide area. Fittingly, the last run for Engine 33 was for a house fire earlier this week. We will miss our old engine and her distinctive sound, but we look forward to years of service from the new Engine 3.
