Post Updated: June 28, 2015

After 12 years of reliable service the existing Tower 54 is being replaced by a new truck. The new Tower 54 will be a 2015 Pierce Tower Ladder on an Arrow XT chassis. The truck will having seating for six firefighters and will carry a large selection of ground ladders. The truck will have a 2000GPM pump and a small water tank along with two pre-connected hose lines in the event they are needed. The new tower will have a large compliment of firefighting tools such as fans, hooks, ladders, tarps and other equipment. We expect the truck to be delivered by the end of May.

The existing truck was sold to Milford Fire Company.
