Pump Day 4/24/2021
MAFAA has been able to arrange an opportunity to draft and pump in Ashby. We will have access to a pond adjacent to the Ashby Elementary School. This site is on Route 119 at 911 Main Street. All members are welcome to bring and operate fire apparatus. The site allows for four access points for apparatus This site will be available beginning at 0900 hrs. on Saturday, April 24, 2021. The event will occur, rain or shine. A limited number of appliances and hoses will be provided. Hard suction hoses will be in limited supply. Some adapters will also be available. Safety will be a priority and the general guidelines of SPAAMFAA regarding musters and drafting will be applicable. All vehicles should have wheel chocks and portable fire extinguishers. Remember we are guests of the Town of Ashby. The Ashby Fire Station is just up the road. Local establishments have refreshments and food within walking distance of the drafting site.
Planning has begun for the 44th annual 2021 Massachusetts Antique Fire Apparatus Association parade and flea market. With the ongoing pandemic, we will be working with the Shriners Auditorium, and the Wilmington Fire Department to see what type of parade / flea market can be put on this year.
Thanks for your patience.
The MAFAA Board
