THE 1975 SEAGRAVE ACTIVITIES

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.
