The Freedom Engine

Following the events of September 11, 2001, East Tennesseans contributed more than $940,000 to purchase and equip a 95-foot tower ladder truck for Harlem-based Ladder Company 14, helping the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) replenish the largest vehicles in the city's firefighting fleet. The so-called “Freedom Engine,” built by Seagrave Fire Apparatus of Clintonville, Wisconsin, went into service during March 2002 and was dedicated on September 11th of that year.
