Lynn Fire Station - 100 E. Church Street & South Main Street
This firehouse was built in 1969 and is connected to the Town Hall. It is home to all six frontline apparatus. The left three bays were added to the station in 2006. Prior to that time, the Squad was housed across the street at their former firehouse for more than three years.

Engine 11 - 1992 International/KME Pumper (#1426) - 1000gpm/1000gal
The response order of Lynn's two engines depends on the month. On odd months Engine 11 is first due and on even months Engine 12 is first due. This is becoming a common pratice for departments trying to extend the working life of their fleets. If a mutual aid call comes in, then the out-of-service engine is sent.

Tanker 13 - 2001 Seagrave Marauder II (#74283)/2015 McGinley - 500gpm/2000gal
This apparatus originally served as a tiller tractor for Cicero, IL (as shown below). McGinley had it on hand and Lynn decided to have it made into a tanker. The tanker body was then added on to the Tiller as shown below.

Truck 14 - 2006 Ford F-350/Stahl/American's Body Co. - HP/250gal skid unit
This apparatus serves a dual roles fighting brush fires and carrying Amkus rescue tools for extrication calls. UT-14 is first-due on grass/trash fires and responds to all calls except medical calls. However, it also serves as a second-out truck if a second medical call comes in while on another call.

Tanker 16 - 1988 IHC S2500/2011 ??/2014 Oncite LLC - 250gpm/2500gal
The chassis of this rig began life as a commercial semi tractor from Harford County, Maryland. This was then converted to an 1880 gallon tank built by a very small company in Florida that was building a few tankers and brush trucks a year and had only been in business a few years. This was the last thing they built before closing shop and it wasn't even completely done. Lynn members installed the pump, folding tank bracket and lighting/lettering. The bed was actually a few feet longer then the tank, so in 2014 a local FF who worked for Oncite, a local fabricating company, extended the tank making it a 2500 gallon. This replaced the yellow tanker 13.

Former Tanker 13 - 1974 Ford C/Howe (#14150-H)/2003 FD/Klein - 750gpm/2200gal
This rig previously served the department as a frontline pumper before being converted to tanker use. TK-13 is first-out on car fires and second-out on all fire runs. A local company (Klein) let the FD use their shop to work on the tanker in 2003.
