Lovettsville Volunteer Fire and Rescue - Station 12.
Station 12 in Lovettsville.
The new Wagon 612 at Lovettsville replaced a 1999 Pierce Dash engine. Wagon 612 is a 2012 Ferrara Inferno equipped with a 1500/750 and 20 gallons of foam.
Some interesting features on Wagon 612. A green "Wagon 612" lights up just below the Roto-Ray warning light on the front cab. This was also the first time I saw the helmet brackets and strap on the dashboard, designed to hold into place the helmets of the officer and driver.
Photographed in November of 2012 at Station 12.
Since the "Wagon" designation was discontinued in Loudoun County, Lovettsville's Wagon 612 had its designation changed to Engine 612. Photographed in September of 2013.

It replaced the original "large" county purchased tanker - a 2005 International/Pierce 3000 gallon that originally saw service in Hamilton.
