Video: Spring Hill (TN) New Pierce Ascendant Midmount Aerial

Lieutenant Chuck Estes walks around the Spring Hill (TN) Fire Department’s Velocity® 100-foot Ascendant® Tower. The department expects the midmount platform to allow it to have extra ladder reach and fulfill its demand for additional equipment. Pegboards in the compartments allow for various mounting options for current and future equipment. The ergonomically-friendly oil dry hopper will allow crews to clean up oil spills with ease.
