CARYVILLE, TN (WLAF) – Before Caryville’s new fire engine (top photo) headed north from Alabama, the manufacturer, Rosenbauer, had a special request. Would Chief Eddie Hatmaker allow them to display the unit at the annual North America Fire Equipment Company (NAFECO) Expo? The chief answered with a resounding “yes.”

Above is the sign that was on display with Caryville’s new fire engine at the expo.
