Marblehead Fire Chief Jason Gilliland said he expects the new quint ladder truck will arrive in mid-March.
The new $1.2 million 100-foot aerial quint ladder truck is nearly complete. It will replace a 1987 Mack Pumper.
On March 4, Gilliland will make one last trip to the Pierce Manufacturing plant in Appleton, Wisc., to inspect the department’s new apparatus.
“We have to crawl in and under every part of that truck for a final inspection,” Gilliland said. “Then we will hire a driver to bring it here.”
