New Ladder Truck Delivered to LAFD

A brand new ladder truck was delivered this morning to the Los Alamos Fire Department at Fire Station 3 in White Rock. This is the first major fire apparatus to be replaced in the department’s DOE/LAFD vehicle replacement plan. DOE paid for the truck, which cost $858,566 and has a 105-foot ladder and 1,500 gallon per minute pump, holds 300 gallons of water, and is used in high rise and technical fires and to enable crews to reach rooftops to open areas for ventilation.
