The Lake Burton Civic Association is in the process of restoring "BIG RED" back to its original 1948 condition. The restored fire engine will be put on display at community events and featured in parades to help promote the importance of our volunteer fire departments and encourage community support. “The goal is to feature "BIG RED" in community activities as a means of assisting with the continuous need to recruit new volunteers,” says Tom Madison, LBCA board member and Tallulah-Persimmon Fire Department member. While the final cost to restore "BIG RED" to its original glory is not yet finalized, the LBCA believes the cost will be in the $30,000 to $50,000 range.
