Did you know that there is a Bend Fire Historical Society?

 

Right now, the collection is being housed at the Tumalo Fire Department, but Bend Fire spokesperson Cindy Kettering says they want to find a new and better permanent home for the artifacts.  "What we're trying to do is, we're looking at the history of the Bend Fire Department and there's quite a bit of it. We go back 107 years. So we have artifacts, photographs, all sorts of items, not only that are still in the possession of the fire department, but scattered far and wide. And we want to preserve those items. And the items that are scattered, we want to bring home."

 

Kettering says the biggest item they want back is the very first fire engine, a 1918 American Lafrance, that is currently owned by a Washington fire station.

 

She says they are having a garage sale this Friday and Saturday to raise money to purchase an old fire engine to trade with Washington to get the old engine back.

 

The garage sale will be at the Bend Fire Training Center on Jamison Street.
