TFD Tower 2 "Push-In" Ceremony

Tacoma Fire Department will officially place a new ladder tower, designated as Tower 2, in service following a tradition historically known as a “push-in” ceremony. The celebration of welcoming a new apparatus has been a source of pride for the fire service for over 100 years. The origin of the ceremony dates back to horse-drawn equipment when the horse could not back-up the fire engines and firefighters would unhitch the horses and “push-in” the fire engine after returning from a call. The community is invited to attend the ceremony.

Date: October 15, 2019

Time: 9:00 am

Location
: Fire Station 8
4911 South Alaska Street 
Tacoma, WA 98408
