VINTAGE fire engines look set to have a new life as a visitor attraction thanks to an agreement between Almeria city council and the Almeria Vintage Vehicles Club.

Almeria Mayor Ramon Fernandez-Pacheco said the two fire trucks, one dating back to the 1940s and the other to the 1960s, were part of the city’s heritage and should be for everyone to enjoy.

Under the agreement the club will restore the two vehicles with a view to them being brought out at various kinds of public events for the public to see.

The two fire engines are currently kept at the Almeria city fire station.
