Seattle Fire Department had a DUKW!

Posted by on Sep 30, 2010 in Uncategorized

DUKWs were originally used in WWII to transport cargo from ships at sea to troops on shore, but after the war, they were used for a variety of functions. Besides fantastically fun tours of Seattle, they’ve been used by police departments, rescue units and our very own Seattle Fire Department even had one they used in the early 1970s! Thanks to Captain Bob La Blah for finding these photos online! When he’s not quacking, laughing and blah-blah’ng through the streets of Seattle, Captain Bob La Blah volunteers with the Last Resort Fire Department in Seattle! Their website says their roots go back as far as WWII, but the Last Resort Fire Department officially began in 1969 and now has the largest collection of antique motorized fire apparatus in the Pacific Northwest, as well as great collection of old photos! Including… an old DUKW! The Last Resort Fire Department is a non-profit organization dedicated to the acquistion, restoration, preservation and display of classic antique motorized fire apparatus. Their fundraising activities include fire prevention displays, birthdays, weddings, retirement parties, parades and other community events! Although you won’t see an old DUKW, for more information or to see some of their classic fire trucks, visit their museum at 1433 NW 51st Street...
