Water 53 Rescue
Water Rescue 53 is a trailer that holds all of CUTFD's water rescue and dive equipment. It is usually pulled to the scene by Grass 57. Its contents include a zodiac boat with motor, extra air bottles for divers, various ropes, and backup dive equipment as well. All of the primary dive equipment is stored in Rescue 59 where the divers can fully dress and come off the truck ready to get in the water.
Reacquired in 2006 from John Smith of Lost Lake Campgrounds. Engine 35 served as the primary engine for many of the early years at CUTFD. Engine 35 was re-powered in 1937 with a 1937 Ford Flathead V8 after the engine seized at an incident. The pump has been restored and this Engine pumped for the first time in 35 years from hydrant in October 2007. Engine 35 has been slowly restored to original condition with the addition of chrome and gold leaf striping and lettering. The restoration is ongoing.
