Bartlett Fire District Engine 662

When the Seagrave was repainted black over red to reflect a changeover in the apparatus fleet, it was in service as Engine 662. The new lettering no longer included "Countryside" as part of the district's name. Larry Shapiro photo

Bartlett Fire Protection District Engine 612 Seagrave

The Seagrave was originally Engine 612 when it was delivered in 1993. At that time, the entire Bartlett fleet was painted yellow and the lettering displayed Bartlett & Countryside Fire protection District. Larry Shapiro collection
