Santa Cruz County (CA) Welcomes New Fire Apparatus

A new $1.4MM ladder truck for the Central Fire Protection District of Santa Cruz County is tentatively scheduled to go into service mid-December, reports patch.com.

The truck is replacing the CFPD’s 2001 Pierce ladder truck, but the ladder truck will remain available for use if needed.

The new Rosenbauer expands the tools available to incident commanders countywide, Webb said. For example, the ladder truck’s unique aerial platform is safer and provides more strength for certain dangerous operations, like steep cliff rescues.
