A few years ago the Smithtown Fire Department acquired their 1935 Mack Ladder truck that was last used by the Melville Fire Department.
For the past year a ground up restoration has been underway in Maine. The Ladder will return this spring to be viewed as a part of Smithtown Fire Department history and serve in exhibitions, parades and community events.
The restoration of the Ladder is being funded through the generosity and donations of the Smithtown community as well as members of the department.
The gold leaf applications in pictures found in the gallery below are one the final step of the restoration.
