A retired Middletown fire engine has arrived and is back in service in a new community in the Caribbean. The retired 1997 Luverne fire engine could have been sold for scrap, but the Middletown Division of Fire worked with Cincinnati firefighter Walter Cook, who facilitates donations of retired fire apparatus and equipment to nations in the Caribbean and in South America.Cook said the Middletown fire engine was placed on a flatbed truck, arrived in New Jersey on Sept. 18 and was shipped to St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The fire engine arrived in Kingstown, that nation’s capital city and chief port, on Oct. 17 and cleared customs.
