21 Engine

21 Engine is a 1949 Mack B Pumper.  This is one of the first fire trucks ever purchased by the PHVFC and responded to fires for nearly 50 years.  It was brought out of retirement briefly during Hurricane Katrina to assist in pumping the flooded homes of Pleasant Hills.  Today, it serves as a source of pride for our members, a treasured piece of history, and a favorite of residents at parades.  However, 21 Engine is still in excellent condition, so it’s ready to go back into service if ever needed.
