The Story of the Seagrave Engine 16

This engine began its service with the Sacramento Fire Department in January 1975.  The pumper saw service at Station 3, Station 6 and spent its final 13 years serving the South Sacramento Meadowview area as Engine 16.  It was sold at public auction on January 15, 2003 to a San Diego fire equipment dealer.  It was sent to Yreka, California, where it languished in the rain and snow for five years.  On February 23, 2008 it was purchased by a private individual who returned it to Sacramento for restoration and preservation, and to display the engine as a tribute to our City firefighters.
