1968 Mack C with 1000 gpm pump and 300 gallon water tank. In May of 1989, the City & County of Denver used bond money to purchase & annex land northeast of the city to build a new airport. On January 16, 1992, Engine Company 31 was placed in service in the gasoline powered Mack pumper. Engine 31 was housed at Station 29 and could respond to the airport grounds in 18 minutes. The response time was too long, so during daylight hours and weather permitting, the Engine would stage at the airport construction site and return to 29’s at night.
