05/30/13 112 W, 2 I - + 4 - 4 Boone's New Aerial Platform


Photographed by Lee Wilson this weekend, the Boone Fire Department in Watauga County took delivery of this 100-foot Ferrara mid-mount aerial platform a couple weeks ago. Named Tower 1, it replaces the familiar 1986 Mack Aerialscope that we recently blogged about. See more photos from Lee. Looks like BFD also placed a mini-pumper in service in recent months (years?), this Ford F-350 with a Monroe body. Named Engine 2, and also pictured below. Maybe readers can advise a full fleet listing for the department. Or maybe someday they'll add one to their web site, hint hint. (Still waiting, always waiting, for their history to be posted.)

This post revealed to me that their Mack CF telescope is now on GovDeals. I hope this truck gives them the same type of service for as many years as the Mack did. I was sad to see the reserve on their Mack was at $50,000. Out of my range!

Love the photos. I live in Boone , NC and I’m on the Watauga County Rescue Squad. Next time you are in boone can you come by and take more pictures of their trucks. They also have built a new station ( station 3 ). They bought a new engine to put in that station. So next time you are around could you take a few and send them to me. thanks!
