Joseph P. DiBernardo Memorial Foundation, created by the family of one of the firefighters injured on Black Sunday.

“Every fire department should be outfitted with these,” Moran said. “It’s necessary safety equipment.”

Navarre (OH) 1923 Fire Apparatus Being Restored

Equipped with about 60 horsepower, the truck undoubtedly signaled immediate unemployment for a couple of horses of the 4-legged kind because their services were no longer needed.  

Decommissioned in 1953 after 30 years of service to the town, the fire truck was moved from one storage facility to another over the next 65 years and most folks lost track of it.
