Community Invited to Help Dedicate the Fire Division’s Newest Safety Vehicle

Green, OH (March 19, 2019) – Green Mayor Gerard Neugebauer and Green Fire Chief Jeff Funai invite the community of Green to join Green Fire in dedicating its newest fire engine Tanker 1918, a 2,500-gallon Pierce Impel pumper/tanker, to its fleet of safety vehicles.  The dedication event is Saturday, April 6 at Green Fire Station No. 1, 4200 Massillon Road, at 10 a.m. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.

The ceremony will include brief remarks from Fire Chief Jeff Funai and Green Mayor Gerard Neugebauer followed by a blessing of the truck and a traditional ceremonial “wetting down” of the engine. The community, families encouraged to attend, will be asked to join in toweling dry the engine prior to Green Fire pushing the truck into the service bay as a ceremonial sign of being placed into service. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony. 

The truck, a tanker that is also fully equipped as an engine, replaces a 28-year-old Pierce Dash tanker.   Green City Council approved the purchase of the vehicle in 2018 for $643,972.  It joins our fleet of two other engines and a 75’ quint ladder truck.
