At noon today Assistant Chief B. Konen, Captain T. Neas, and FF J. Branch ventured to Troutville to pick up and bring back Engine 2. The engine is now awaiting pump testing and decals before being placed back in service. It has been a long time coming, but we are very happy to have her back. Hugh's Body Shop did an amazing shop repairing rust, dents, and repainting the entire truck in addition to making several needed upgrades.
