Aquashicola’s Mack Tank truck is SOLD! Purchased from the Montague, NJ Fire Department in May 2013, it served until December 2014.

Pictured below are two representatives of the Rhea County Tennessee Fire Department who arrived at AFD amidst sleet, snow, and an icy mix to purchase the 1976 Mack Tank Truck. AFD Director Larry Arner accepted the payment and thanked Mr. Chuck Kinney. The Mack tank truck served AFD well and may it serve the fire fighters of Rhea County Tennessee as well too.
