The Williston Fire Department put a tiller fire truck into service, reports Williston Herald.
The truck will replace the department’s 75-foot straight frame aerial. Planning for the tiller began in March 2018 and an order was placed in February 2019. The department said this maneuverability allows the tiller to navigate around obstacles and traverse in and out of tighter areas.
Fire department personnel have spent nearly the last two months training and working on specific skills related to the tiller.
The tiller also includes a 100-foot ladder for high rise response and significant compartment space. The tiller comes equipped for faster set up time, which the department said will lead to quicker response times.
