09/28/09 77 W, 1 I - + 14 - 15 Ladder 1 at Station 1

While the downtown ladder was testing hose today, one of the northside companies spent some time at Station 1. That's a 2001 Quality/Spartan with a 75-foot stick, 1,500 GPM pump, and 300 gallon tank. It's the tallest of the city's ladders, and rides even higher than the new Pierce platforms. It's also the only two-axle truck in the fleet. The apparatus previously served as Ladder 4, Ladder 23, Truck 23, Truck 24, and Engine 23.

So much for “like” numbers not running together…

No one ever said they would not, only that the instances would be reduced. From an earlier entry- “reducing the number of duplicate unit numbers on scene”.

Mike, It is not the tallest of the city’s ladders. Also, it is the only single axle truck in our fleet. Drank one to many when you wrote this one I belive. HAHAHA

I butchered this one. I read and responded before it sunk in. I reread you post Mike and you were right. I was thinking of rear axles and the actual ladder. Sorry!

Yes, Ladder one rides the highest of any of the city’s aerials. And it’s the only single rear-axle ladder in the fleet!

Have a drink on me!
