Old Settlers 2002
The weather was unusually cold this year for August 17th. Temperature was 71 degrees at 11 a.m. with a wind chill of 66 degrees. Making for a really cool morning with a 12-14 MPH wind and light rain.

M.E.S. crews prepare for what they believe to a peaceful parade. Little did they realize.....
Sparky (F.F. Brian Diller) walks the Parade route!
Lt. Lowell Ester and Lt. Bobby Kimble ride in Engine #1 following Capt. Duane Brill who is carrying the Kansas Flag with the Honor Guard.
Following Engine #1 is Engine #403. Our new 2002 Luverne Engine was suppose to be delivered before the Parade. Banners were made for the truck thanking Fire District #12 and remembering Fire Board member Ralph Bell. Due to a small vehicle fire on the new Luverne as it was being driven across Nebraska, we had to substitute E-403 (1991 Smeal) in its place. F.F. Jim McDaniel drives E-403 along with Fire Board President Art Carlton.
For the past several years the Keystone Kops have made a habit of spraying water on unsuspecting bystanders and also started targeting the Fire Department, all in good fun. Last year, at the recommendation of some of their fellow shriners, we were ready for them with charged hand lines and had them surprised and outgunned. This year due to the cold weather... we were not going to instigate anything....
However they decided to play the revenge game.
In the first picture (L-R) Lt. Bobby Kimble gets a surprise attack from behind from two Keystone Kops! Next picture the completely unsuspecting EMS Crew get nailed.
Caught off guard it takes us a minute to pull our booster line and charge the pump. This is our reserve pumper that we are awaiting replacement of and we have not flowed water in it for several months, thus producing a nice brown rust colored water.
Picture 1, F.F./EMT Summer Guerrero waits water as the Keystone Kop hides behind a suburban. Sparky (F.F. Brian Diller) comes to her aid with a water extinguisher. Picture 2, is F.F. Summer after she has been drenched by the Keystone Kops.
