MASHPEE BREAKER 250


In July 1957, the Mashpee Fire Department purchased the former County No.2.
The 1942 Ford became Mashpee's first brush breaker, designated "250"
It was locally known as "Geranamo"


The Mashpee breaker responded to many fires in town and across southeastern Massachusetts.


Mashpee 250 was retired in 1976 after serving 19 years with Mashpee and a total of 34 years
on the Cape. 

Later photo of 1942 Ford brush breaker at Mashpee with added bars and enhanced paint tob.
