Berkeley Springs, WV Wagon 13 was purchased in 2015. It was originally delivered to the Fallston, Maryland FD in Hartford County. Wagon 13 is a 1996 Spartan Gladiator/Quality with a 1250/1000. When received in late 2015, Berkeley County had some minor body work completed by Plunkard N Sons Enterprises in Needmore, PA.
Some interesting items regarding Wagon 13:
- When received, instead of blue stripes the stripes were green in Fallston, MD. Berkeley Springs decided to keep Wagon 13 painted yellow and white, and add blue stripes, to support the local Berkeley Springs High School (colors are yellow and blue). In addition, the deck gun and some other equipment were painted blue.
- the "Wagon" designation is the first in Morgan County. Wagon has a long time historical reference in the fire service (old two piece engine companies.....the second piece was often times referred to as the "wagon"). Fallston called this engine their "War Wagon", and Berkeley Springs left that name on the front cab and adopted Wagon 13 as the unit number.
