VIDEO: A piece of firefighting history has returned to the place where it first began its service to the community nearly a century ago. The Exeter Township Fire Department has acquired a 1930 Mack fire truck, thanks to a donation from the Reiffton Fire Company Social Quarters. "I saw pictures of what we were going to get, but when I walked in, it got me a little emotional just to see it in person," said Dep. Chief Chris Jordan. The truck served the township for more than 25 years. "We brought back the 1930 Mack that was an original piece of apparatus for the Reiffton Fire Company, which has now merged into the Exeter Township Fire Department," said Jordan. It was then sold to the Kulptown Fire Company in Union Township, which used it for about a year, according to the E.T.F.D. The truck ultimately ended up in the hands of Jack, a private collector in Maine.
