"The Dinky" is the Fire District's first piece of fire apparatus, a 1917 Model T Ford with an American LaFrance chemical body. This piece of equipment was purchased from the Bolton Landing Volunteer Fire Department in Lake George NY shortly after the Fire Company was incorporated in 1922. The chemical body consists of two rear-mounted tanks containing water and soda acid, which when inverted creates a chemical reaction causing pressure to flow water. The "Dinky" as it is affectionately known, made its last official run in 1929 but remains in service today for parades and special events.
