A little piece of Warner Robins history returned to the Fire department Tuesday afternoon.

One of the two original Warner Robins Fire Department fire trucks was donated to the department by Daniel Evans of Perry.

Warner Robins Fire Department held a ceremony for the donations of the 1959 model. Firefighters of the past and present to gather to see the truck. 

Evans said he has owned one of the original fire trucks for eight years. 

"When I found out they were going to do a fire museum here in Warner Robins, I felt it was important that one of the first two trucks that Warner Robins had ever bought to come back to the museum. I had one of the two trucks, and I wanted to give it back to them," said Evans. 

And with the fire department's effort to preserve it's history, Fire Chief Robert Singletary said it's an excellent addition. 

"It's great. It's something we have been working on for years. Originally we talked about turning the fire station into a little mini-museum in original shape, but then we had the opportunity to acquire one of the original fire trucks. It's just kind of like icing on the cake," said Singletary.
