Barnstable County Forest Fire Department built the third breaker No.1 (C-15)
in 1971. Built on a large International chassis by Thibault in Canada
the new breaker carries 800 gallons.
The third and final Barnstable County Brush Breaker No.1 (C-15) was stationed in North Falmouth
from 1971 until about 2000 when it was reassigned to East Falmouth. When the County disbanded
its Forest Fire Service in 1985, it became Falmouth Fire Department Breaker 15.
