ENGINE 529
Chemical Company 1981 American LaFrance 1500 GPM Pumper, semi open 5 person cab. Engine 529's original body color was lime green, which was the only lime green fire truck in the 5th Battalion. 529 is currently the oldest fire engine in active service in the Glen Cove. Unfortunately the truck suffered from massive salt water flood damage on December 11th & 12th, 1992. A serious and violent storm had struck the eastern shores of the United States. 529, along with other engines, was used to evacuate residents out of a submerged Morgan's Island. 529 also responded on a Mutual Aid call to help evacuate the Village of Bayville during this Nor’easter when Bayville was totally under water. Engine 529 was then directed to fight a house fire when all other units were still in evac mode. The water was waist high and if not for the waves caused by the engine driving down the street the fire hydrant would never have been seen. The fire hydrant was literally under water the hose was hooked up under water also. During the repairs done to engine 529 it was decided to paint the truck fire engine red with a black roof.
