Fire Engines

The first fire engine is a Bedford, which was developed and deployed as the first response fire engine for the Klerksdorp Municipality in 1974. The fire engine was discovered on a game farm outside Klerksdorp where it was kept by the Brits family.

The Association has acquired two fire engines, each with its own charming historical background.  David Poxon, the previous General Manager of the Association, has indicated that the history behind the vehicles is as significant as the preserving of the machines which have shaped the bit of folklore.
