The Stillwater (OK) Fire Department (SFD) next month will be accepting delivery of its new Pierce 107-foot ladder.
SFD had an apparatus committee that commenced in 2019 to determine what requirements they’d like on the new truck. Details were kicked around, and Oklahoma State University’s help was sought for the paint design.
SFD administration then worked alongside with the four-member committee of Battalion Chief Kevin Roach, Captain Brandon Halcomb, Captain Tyler Sparks, and Captain Dustan Portman. In early May, SFD Chief Terry Essary traveled with three of the members to a plant in Wisconsin to complete inspection of the apparatus.
