New fire truck for Shepherdstown VFD

December 16th, 2012

A 2012 Pierce Velocity has replaced a 1989 Pierce Dash that has served the Shepherdstown Volunteer Fire Department on over five thousand calls.

The new $500,000 fire truck was purchased “through the sale of a lot of apple butter,” according to Shepherdstown VFD Chief Ross Morgan.

The new “Engine Three” was named in honor of the late Kenneth Shipley, who died after answering a call in February 1951. His granddaughter’s husband, Ron Kemp, was on the committee that turned the dream of a new firetruck into¬† a reality.
