On July 7, 1950 the Vigilant Hose Company members received a big surprise when the Seagrave company of Columbus Ohio delivered their new 1950 Seagrave pumper. The engine had been ordered for some time but was not expected to arrive in time for the big Cumberland Valley Hose Company firehouse dedication and jubilee. Because of some last minute efforts of the Seagrave company the engine was delivered Friday evening in time for the big parade on Saturday. The new quad was scheduled to arrive later in the year. The company wasted no time giving the engine a baptism by fire when it caught it's first job on Saturday July 15Th.
