Grant Helps Torrington (NE) VFD Get Aerial Fire Apparatus

A Mineral Royalties Grant will help fund a new aerial platform fire apparatus for the Torrington Volunteer Fire Department, reports KNEB.

The ladder truck is expected to cost around $1.4 million, with 75 percent covered by the grant and the balance split between the City of Torrington and Rural Fire District 3.

Extensive training once the truck arrives will be needed. Firefighters need to train on how to drive a truck and where to position it.
