The truck, formally named the Wilderness Pass V.F.W. Engine No. 3, will travel around to the different stations, and is a vintage 1941 Ford model. Both the park's public relations staff and the Knoxville Fire Chief were on hand to stress the importance of fire safety and honor the firefighters.
A vintage water hose will be signed by firefighters as a part of the tour, and eventually the hose and the 1941 Ford truck will be a permanent part of FireChaser Express' theming.
