New London Fire Apparatus Marked Improvement Over Former Fire Apparatus

The New Longon truck will allow the fire department to continue fire coverage for the eight communities — 2100 properties — it serves. 

The new fire truck has some great improvements:

Upgrades include more automation, more seats, and a bigger water tank that can pump out almost 4,000 litres — or 1,000 gallons — per minute.

Foam, which is used on fuel and vehicle fires, is easier to access with the truck’s new computerized foam controls. 

The truck features new hands-free communication equipment. 

There is also better lighting and better storage.
