The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

E One Mill Creek Volunteer Fire Company
Most fire engines in the USA are considered "triple combination" apparatus, meaning that they operate with a pump, water tank, and hoseline. The term Quint was coined when departments began to build on the standard "triple", adding a full compliment of Ground Ladders and an Aerial Device.
This E-One quint (and a sister machine) are operated by the Mill Creek Volunteer Fire Company (Delaware USA)
