Citizens help Statesboro Fire Dept. push 2 new fire engines into service
But the real push was SPLOST referendum, which supplied the necessary $1.3 million
SFD push-in ceremony
Members of the Statesboro Fire Department and the community help symbolically push brand new fire engines into the bay during a ceremony on Tuesday, May 9. The push-in ceremony originated in the early 17th and 18th centuries when hand-drawn and horse-drawn fire engines had to be pushed into the fire station after calls. (SCOTT BRYANT/staff)
