1930 McCann Fire Engine

Contributed by Hose 5 Fire Museum

While the 1930 McCann was not Bangor's first motorized fire engine it does have the distinction of never having left the City of Bangor. Built in Portland, ME for $10,900 the 1,000 gallon per minute pump Engine 1 gained some fame in 1962 when it was pressed into service to supply water for 96 1/2 hours to the City of Bangor when a water main from Brewer to Bangor broke.
