The Independent Fire Company brought our 1937 Buffalo home. The Buffalo originally got its name because it was manufactured by the Buffalo Fire apparatus Company in Buffalo New York. The Independent Fire Company Purchased the truck and it was in service from 1937 to 1958 under the direction of Chief’s William Norton Sr., Henry Harris Jr., and Theodore Jensen Jr. In 1958 the truck was donated to the Warwick Fire Company to help them start their fire company.

The Buffalo has had four owners since it left the Fire Company. The most recent in Dallas, as it traveled from Los Vegas, Maine and Horsham. Continue reading The Buffalo Returns to Jenkintown
