The Auburn Fire Department invites the community to join them in welcoming the arrival of the new Engine # 2 to the city! On June 1, 2013, 10:00am at the New Auburn station (181 S. Main Street), AFD will be holding a special ceremony to formally place this new engine into service. In addition to the housing of the new engine, there will also be a special recognition of in memory of Captain Willis F. Millett who was a Captain on Engine 2. Captain Millet  made the ultimate sacrifice on October 31, 1952, four days after being grievously injured while successfully rescuing a four year old girl from a fire on Main Street. Family members of Captain Millett will be on hand to take part in this recognition. Tours of the new engine and Station # 2 will be available and light refreshments will be served. All are invited to attend!!
