Veazie firefighter Nick Sirois (center) talks about the 1980 fire truck that his town gave to the town of Beddington with Beddington volunteer firefighters Chief Mike Loughlin (far left) and Ray Antunes at the Veazie fire station Friday. The Mack-built pumper truck that has served at the Veazie station for 29 years was recently replaced and the town council decided to give the older truck to another town that is in bad need of equipment. “It was a very hard process, because we received 50 applications,” said Veazie Fire Chief Gerry Martin. “All of those towns could have used it, but we had to make a decision.” Beddington town administrator Phillip White, who accompanied the firefighters to Veazie, said that it is great help for them. “It is a perfectly good firetruck, but we could not have raised the money to buy one, even used.”
