1939 Ahrens Fox
1939 Ahrens Fox Fire Engine, "The Fox" as the Coraopolis firefighters call it. Rebuilt in 1995 by some of the departments members. The restoration that took three years is well documented in one of the Fire Department's photo albums. The Fox was originally purchased new by the Borough of Coraopolis in 1939. It was in service until 1963. When it was taken out of service it was sold to a farmer in Westmorland County . The Department was fortunate to get the engine back after so many years. "The Fox" makes regular appearances at local parades and is also part of the Tri-State Antique Firefighting Association.
Station 127 and Station 205 responded to a report of a smoke detector going off in a apartment. Food left unattended burnt on the stove. A fan was used to clear smoke from the apartment.
Station 127 is expecting delivery of our new Rescue Engine from Sutphen sometime in May.
