In the very small village of Brave, in Greene County, resides the Wayne Township Volunteer Fire Department. Oddly, the only good way to get to this little village is by driving a few miles into West Virginia on Route 7. This small department in far southwest PA seems to do well for itself with some nice front line apparatus. Engine 75-2 is a 1995 International 4900/Pierce that was purchased from Large, in Allegheny County. Second out Engine 75-3 is a 1984 GMC/FMC 1000/750. To handle the various rescue situations with auto and ATV accidents they operate Rescue 75-1 which came from the Elysburg Fire Company in Northumberland County, a 1999 International 4900/4 Guys. To get off road for woods and brush fires they use Brush 75-6, a 1989 Chevrolet PP/200/10 Foam. Last, but not least, is Squad 75-4, a 1999 GMC for general purpose duties. I want to give a very special thank you to Chief Jeff Hillberry for taking the time to pose the apparatus for photos and give us a quick station tour. Good luck to the men and women of Wayne Twp. Fire Dept.
