Folly’s First Firetrucks

Folly Beach got its first fire truck, an International Harvester, in 1941. In this picture, local Folly women show off the new vehicle. (L-R: Unknown, Marion Smith, Helen Barbery, Maida Dudley). Thirty-three years later, on ‘Kids Day’ in October 1974, local children got the chance to don firemen hats and cruise around Folly in the city’s shiny 500 gallon-per-minute pumper truck.
