Pine Brook (NJ) Welcomes New Fire Apparatus

The Pine Brook Volunteer Fire Department welcomed its new 55-foot ladder truck, reports Tap Into Montville.

The new Pierce “sky-boom” truck was purchased to fulfill a specific need, said Pine Brook fire fighter, vice president, and lieutenant Justin Lizza. The department needed a smaller length ladder truck to fit in residents’ driveways to extinguish fires, according to Lizza.

The new truck sprays 2,000 gallons per minute and holds 500 gallons of water as well as 50 gallons of foam, Lizza said.
