So, what’s the story behind the Navy Blue color of Plymouth’s apparatus? Apparently, many years ago the members of the company decided they wanted to clearly distinguish themselves from the other fire company (Harmonville) serving the township hence the Navy Blue color that has been standard for decades among Plymouth’s apparatus.
