In 1973 Adams purchased an American LaFrance, 1250 GPM pumper, yellow color, 1E5. At our dedication ceremony, St Johnsburg christened our new truck with bird feed. Thus, the truck got its name the "Canary" or "Tweety Bird" and thats how the name was given by our neighboring fire company's. 1E5 took the place of 1E4.
