1The truck won't fit into Station 11 until the bay expansion is complete. Work hasn't started and is probably a few months away. Until then, the word is that the truck will serve at Station 4 as Ladder 1.

Raleighs new ladder and at least one engine was being tested at C.W. Williams Inc. on Wednesday 02/05/2014. Both were in the service lot with all emergency lights activated and the ladder was being extended and moved around to different positions.

Don’t know, I was attending a funeral and the funeral home is located about 2 doors down from C.W. Williams Inc. The ladder was clearly marked Raleigh Fire Department. There was at least 1 other truck maybe 2 parked behind it also with lights activated and color coding matched the Ladder. I wanted to turn left leaving the funeral home to get a better look but since the procession was turning right and it the funeral was for a family member my wife insisted I stay in the funeral procession. My son who is a Raleigh Firefighter also the ladder and the “Raleigh” lettering.
