The McRae-Helena (GA) Fire Department has added a new, 78-foot aerial to its fleet thanks to a pair of grants, reports wgxa.tv.

The apparatus comes with a 36-foot ladder, and firefighters are still training on it.

The grants totaled close to $1 million, while the truck itself cost more than $700,000. The additional funds allowed the department to purchase other equipment, too—e.g., a compressor system and 12 new self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
