Fire Aerial Ladder Trucks
We staff two, 100′ tractor drawn aerial ladder trucks, one out of Fire Station 21 and the other out of Fire Station 23. The trucks respond to all major incidents in the community. These trucks carry special equipment including “the jaws of life,” ladders, heavy rescue equipment, jacks, saws, pumps, and many other special tools. The truck is staffed by one Fire Captain and three Firefighters. One member of the Truck Company is a Paramedic.
