This FWD Pumper, Engine 2632, was in service as a front-line pumper until 2004, when it was replaced by a new pumper engine at the Baker Rural Fire Protection District in Baker City, OR. Department personnel bought the retired engine from the department. The firefighters believe the old engine and its rich service history deserved far more than to fall into a state of abandonment.

Engine 2632 has been used for parades and special events, including some photo advertisements in Boise, ID. The department personnel hope a new owner will give this family member the home it deserves for the lives and property it has saved. A Cummins 220 engine with 5-speed manual transmission powers this fire truck.
