The Connecticut Cellar Savers, Inc. is a local chapter of a nationwide organization called SPAAMFAA (Society for the Preservation and Appreciation of Antique Motor Fire Apparatus of America). Our chapter participates in numerous community activities, operates our fire museum in Portland, CT, and promotes the preservation of the fire apparatus. Members personally own over 60 antique fire trucks from the 1910's up to the 1970's. Most are firefighters or are "retired" firefighters, but you don't have to be one to join. We are open to anyone with an interest in antique fire fighting equipment and memorabilia.
Chapter Goals include the following:
Promote and foster a spirit of friendliness and cooperation among our members, to learn the history and development of fire apparatus.
To preserve historic fire fighting equipment and to display it in parades, meets and musters.
To institute and present fire prevention and educational displays and programs.
To aid each other in the care and restoration of vintage fire equipment.
Dedicated to the preservation, appreciation and promotion of antique fire apparatus, as well as all things having to do with the history of the fire service.
