The Rensselaer (IN) Volunteer Fire Department is hosting a push-in ceremony for its $1.47 million ladder truck on Saturday, November 20 from 2 to 4 p.m., reports newsbug.info.

The apparatus is an ArrowXT 100-foot ascendant tower truck with blacked-out features, according to the report. It will feature red and black colors on the cab door to represent Rensselaer Central High School’s colors.

The mid-mount platform, the report says, has a low height—10’10”—so that it can fit underneath bridges; its length is 42’4”. It boasts a 2,000-gpm pump and a 300-gallon tank.

The department sold its 2003 ladder truck to the Brook/Iroquois Township Fire Department over the summer, the report says.
