Duluth (MN) Fire Dept. Starts Looking for New Aerial

After retiring a 1995 aerial in August, the Duluth (MN) Fire Department needs a replacement truck, according to a report published by Fox21.

The aerial became a reserve unit in 2013 and the department hopes to begin the process of looking for a replacement very soon, according to the television station. It could take as long as 18 months to take delivery of a new custom truck, the report says.

Station 4 is one of three station requiring a ladder truck due to the 97 structures containing three or more stories in that area of the city, according to the report, which added the Northland region of the community has seen an uptick in structure fires.
