Firemen Refurbish Antique Fire Truck
By Allan Jamail
Galena Park, TX. – February 6, 2018 at the regular council meeting Mayor Esmeralda Moya recognized and commended Firemen Sam Henry and Robbie Beall for their volunteering to restore the city’s first fire truck.
Because of the invaluable volunteer service of Henry and Beall the 1936 Ford Seagate fire truck was restored for $14,000 compared to the $124,000 price tag quoted by a company specializing in fire truck restorations. Their work took 22 months to complete with the help of two local companies. AmSpec restored the chrome, Burbank Barrel polished the brass and San Jacinto College painted it. The antique truck is only used now for parades or on display at city events.
