Pretty narrow minded “Bob A”. Hope you never need it. I, for one, will be proud if we use that ladder truck just once to save someone’s life.

Thanks minimom. All it takes is once because we all know there is no price on a person’s life.

Every Town and City in the USA has a ladder truck. Bob, you should call and ask how many times they use theirs. The last I knew the ladder truck was part of the Fire Dept. along with the pumpers and rescues, ambulances, ect. This is a small town but small towns have big fires too and having a ladder truck on the Fire Dept makes me feel safer.

The quint was a big expense for the town, and I hope that 20 years from now we are in a position to say we never needed it.

That’s a much better outcome than needing it, and not having it. Bob, my guess is you know that.
