Nolensville Fire & Rescue, along with the Nolensville Board of Commissioners and city staff, will host the city’s first-ever push ceremony for a new fire truck on March 29.

The celebration will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Nolensville Fire Station at 7347 Nolensville Road. Light refreshments will be available.

“This new engine is symbolic of a bright future for Nolensville Fire & Rescue,” said Chief David Windrow. “The push-in ceremony is a tangible acknowledgment that the new equipment has arrived and that the men and women of the department are grateful to the residents for providing state-of-the-art equipment.

The traditional pushing ceremony honors the history and traditions of the fire service dating back to the late 1800s, when fire apparatus were pulled by horses for duty calls. Horses could not back the equipment into the fire station, therefore firefighters would unhitch the horses and push the device into the station bay by hand.
