Castle Shannon, Pennsylvania is a small community in the south hills of suburban Pittsburgh. Irish settlers, who came to the area to work in coal mines, founded it. It has an area of just over one square mile, with a population of approximately 10,000.

In March of 1922, after a nearly disastrous fire, a group of concerned citizens gathered with one goal in mind, to form the Castle Shannon Volunteer Fire Department. After many meetings, the Castle Shannon Volunteer Fire Department ordered its first fire truck, a Howe REO. The Department took delivery on October 15, 1922. In 1947, the department took delivery of an Ahrens-Fox fire truck. The firefighters named it the 'Green Hornet'. This fire truck set standards by which many of today's fire apparatus are built

The C.S.V.F.D. prides itself today on keeping those same high standards that were set by the forefathers so many years ago.

In 1992, a truck committee was formed to replace the existing 1969 American LaFrance aerial platform. After choosing Pierce Manufacturing, this committee worked for nearly 18 months designing the possible truck. In March of 1994, 72 years after that first meeting, the Castle Shannon Volunteer Fire Department took delivery of this state-of-the-art piece of fire apparatus.
