02/04/12 74 W, 1 I - + 10 - 3 LED Rung Lighting on Aerial Apparatus

A reader recently asked about an aerial ladder seen on Interstate 40, with what looked like black lights illuminating the ladder. Sounded strange, and Mr. Blogger thought it might've been a trick of lighting. Turns out at least one aerial apparatus manufacturer is adding LED rung lighting. See this Pierce 100-foot aluminum ladder product page for more information, including the below photo. That's probably the answer. Thanks Brian!

Smeal also includes blue lights on the rungs

Its a long way off but Mt Olive FD in Wayne County has a Ferrara Mid Mount 100’ Platform with blue LED lighting going up the ladder, it is a 2008/9 model.

Fayetteville Truck 6 has the same lighting, also a new Pierce.

Did CFD’s new L3 come that way?
