Join us in making a difference!

The Old Primero Historical Foundation of Abilene is raising funds to restore Ladder Truck No. 1 (Old 1952) for the Abilene, Texas community.

The restoration of this early ladder truck will be a tribute to all Abilene firefighters who have served our community. It will be a teaching point for children and the citizens of Abilene to illustrate how technology has changed in firefighting in over a half century.

The restored Truck No. 1 will demonstrate how technology is constantly changing as the Abilene Fire Department stands vigil in our community. This preservation project will be a reminder of our past, and a testament to Abilene firelighters and their tradition protecting our families and Abilene across two centuries.
