In June 2010, members of the fire department brought a piece of history back to the community, a 1940 Holabird BF-750, that saw duty in Bloomingdale following World War II until the late 1970's. A Holabird BF-750 is U.S. Army triple combination pumper built at Camp Holabird in Baltimore, Maryland. Holabird Fire Engines were built from 1925 until the onset of the second world war. The BF-750 was in a sense, the largest model built with a 750 gallon per minute rotary gear positive displacement pump. The truck originally saw duty at the Elmira Army Forces Service Depot at Horseheads, NY.
