Luverne Fire Apparatus Company was an American fire apparatus manufacturer located in Brandon, South Dakota. The company operated a plant in Luverne, Minnesota between 1903 and 1985.
Acquired in 1896 by Leicher Brothers, Luverne Wagon Works build their first fire trucks in 1913. Between 1913 and 1985, the Luverne plant built pumpers, tankers, brush trucks and rescues in Minnesota and in some neighboring states.
In 1985, Luverne Fire Apparatus Company was acquired by Luverne Truck Equipment Company of Brandon, South Dakota. At this time, the regional manufacturer started to sell trucks nationally, they also started to sell trucks on custom chassis (Spartan and HME).
In 1997, the company was purchased by Spartan Motors Inc. of Charlotte, Michigan. Spartan also acquired Quality Fire Apparatus of Talladega, Alabama. Between 1997 and 2003, Luverne and Quality continued to sell trucks independently, each serving a different geographical area.
In 2003, Spartan Motors merged Luverne and Quality into Crimson Fire, a new subsidiary company. In 2012, Crimson Fire became Spartan Emergency Rescue Vehicles, or Spartan ERV. The Brandon plant continues production today.
Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, lit. 'the Day of the Festival of Patrick'), is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. 385 – c. 461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
Saint Patrick's Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilís, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. Christians who belong to liturgical denominations also attend church services and historically the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday's tradition of alcohol consumption.
