A state-of-the-art 100-foot platform ladder truck is the newest addition at the Fargo Fire Department (ND).
The new truck is officially in service, replacing the department’s previous ladder truck that dates back to 1986. The $872,000 truck has a variety of new features to better help firefighters and the public.
These features include 1500GPM pump capabilities, a 300 gallon water tank, and rescue extrication equipment.
The new pump and larger water tank along with pre-connect hoses, allow the truck to have it’s own water supply and pumping capability to help flow water through it’s snorkel system. Water can be shot from a cannon at the front of the bucket and a sprinkler underneath allows water to rain down directly over a fire if needed.
