Description:
This image is a screenshot taken from a video produced by The Weather Network. The video relates the history behind Pumper No. 8, a fire truck long employed by the Oakville Fire Department.
Notes:
The video tells the story of one of Oakville’s first firefighting trucks and how its integrity, craftsmanship, and state of the art firefighting capabilities made it into an iconic image of the Oakville Fire Department. It describes how Pumper No. 8 heroically pumped for 30 straight hours in an effort to fight a warehouse chemical fire in 1978 - Oakville's biggest fire in history. After 32 years of responding to every call, Pumper No. 8 was retired from service in 1980, but through the efforts of dedicated individuals was then restored into a ceremonial vehicle that celebrated the Oakville Fire Department's many years of service. Today, it continues to connect the community to that proud history.
