Red Bluff (CA) Cuts Ribbon for New Fire Truck

The $1.2 million 2020 ladder truck is a major upgrade, replacing the department's 1998 engine.

According to a report from KRCR, the city of Red Bluff, California, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the city’s brand new fire truck that had its 100-foot ladder on full display.

The ceremony was held in conjunction with another ribbon-cutting for Red Bluff’s newly-completed Sacramento River Boat Ramp.

The Red Bluff Fire Department’s (RBFD’s) new $1.2 million 2020 ladder truck is a major upgrade, replacing its 1998 engine. RBFD Captain Mark Moyer said the new ladder will improve the response time of his crews as well as give them a better working ladder.

Lastly, Moyer said the biggest difference in the new truck is its 2,000-gallon-per-minute (gpm) pump, an increase from the 1,500-gpm pump on the 1998 truck. It also offers the RBFD a larger cab.

Another major difference is the new ladder is city-owned rather than funded by the county.
