This engine will replace our 1986 Mack CF Pumper which will be for sale once we take delivery. Our members are very excited about this purchase and put countless hours towards the design of this engine. We expect construction to start in June of 2018 and will post more pictures as they are available. ... See MoreSee Less

Station 143 sends our condolences to our brothers and sisters at Station 226. God Speed Nick.The Excelsior Hose Company #2 is deeply saddened to announce the passing of firefighter Nick Pace. Nick faithfully served the residents of Duryea and surrounding communities for 45 years. Nick joined the department on February 12th 1972, and held the office of Assistant Chief from 1978 to 1994. He was still very active in the fire service and could be easily spotted on any call or at any firehouse fundraiser with a big smile on his face. He always had great joy in telling us at late night fires “the coffee and doughnuts are waiting for us boys, Marlene just called me”. He had a great and loving dedication to the fire service and always showed the true meaning of brotherhood. Nick supported us in every fire department function and coached our softball team for the last five years telling us “hit em’ where they a’int”, he pushed us to be the best on and off the fire ground. Nick joined the Navy and faithfully served his beloved country on a combat tour in Vietnam. Nick will be deeply missed by anyone who knew him. We’ll take it from here Nick, rest easy and keep a watchful eye over us and we’ll always be there for Marlene whatever she needs. ... See MoreSee Less
