"We believe it was lost between Station 2 on North Territorial Road and Dexter Townhall Road in Dexter Township when firefighters were out on a call during last Thursday's tornado," said Fire Chief Loren Yates.
The forest green tarp, which has faded a bit during the years, was specially designed for that engine. "Each truck is a little different," Yates said, adding that it has special snaps on it and is usually chained to the back of the engine.
Engine 5-1 also "lost a window" during the rescue operations, Yates said.
If anyone finds the missing tarp, Yates asks that they call the fire department at 734-426-4500, and "We'll come get it," he said.
