The Orange City (FL) Fire Department is purchasing a $1.48 million, 100-foot Pierce ladder truck, reports beacononlinenews.com.
The department’s current ladder, put into service in 1996, only reaches 75 feet. Its successor will take about a year to build before it’s ready for delivery, officials say. The new apparatus will also be available for emergencies in DeBary, the report says.
The old apparatus will be put up for sale, as it has no trade-in value. The department has eight trucks in its fleet, the report says.
