Group raising funds to restore 1923 Stutz

Published on: April 23rd, 2014

No comments


It first responded to an emergency in 1923 and now one group is trying to restore the Stutz fire truck in Illinois.

Officials with the Sycamore Fire Preservation Company say they need $25,000 to begin the efforts, Daily-Chronicle.com reported.

From Daily-Chronicle.com:

The Sycamore Fire Department bought the fire truck in September 1923. According to city records, its first call was in November 1923 to a chimney fire on North Main Street in Sycamore.

The fire truck, which still faintly bears the name “Sycamore” on the side of the hood, spent time with at least four different owners in both Wisconsin and Indiana. It was removed from active service in 1957 and sold at a public auction in 1967.

Sycamore got the fire truck back after its owner sent a letter to the fire department in 2001 indicating he wanted to sell it. That August, the 1923 Stutz fire truck was returned to Sycamore.

The group started to raise money for restoration in 2001 but fundraising was “stalled,” according to Daily-Chronicle.com, due to the attacks on September 11, 2001, and Hurricane Katrina.

An Indiana department dedicated its new Pierce tanker to a firefighter who died in a 2012 crash.

From IndianasNewsCenter.com:

It was 17 months ago when [Mark Haudenschild II] was killed in a rollover accident while on his way to put out a fire. Not only was Haudenschild lost, but so was the tanker he was driving.

Through an outpouring of honor and support, the Washington Township Fire Department dedicated their new tanker in the fallen firefighter’s memory.

Not only did they dedicate the truck by naming it in Mark Haudenschild II’s honor, but they also gave it the same number.

From WANE.com:

The fire department’s tanker holds 3,000 gallons of water, and gives the department two tankers once again. Gillett said the tanker was replaced through the department’s insurance policy, which would replace the old one at no financial cost to the department.

The new tanker includes a back-up camera, LED lights, and a computerized water pump.

The new rig was delivered to the station in February, and firefighters have spent the last couple of months training on it, Washington Township Fire Chief Brian Gillett told WANE.
