SFD in the Past
This is a photo of what is believed to be a 1941 Dodge AX Coupe. This was the Chiefs car for the Salisbury Fire Department when Kido Disharoon wore the Chiefs badge for the Department. I'm not sure but I believe Kido in the gentleman pictured to the rear of the car wearing a suit and hat. A reciept for this vehicle is still in the archives at the SFD and the total price paid was $922.00. Extras on the vehicle were a siren, a spotlight, windshield wipers, and sun visors. Paint and door embelms were also extras. I assume the paint was extra because it was a custom color but that is not verified.
The car is being fueled at "Macks Esso Servicecenter" on the cornor of E. Main St and Babtist St.
If anyone is familar with Kido Disharoon please e-mail me. We would like to know more of his history with the SFD as well as his personal life and family.
