This truck is a 75 foot quint. It was purchased used in 2009 to replace our 1973 American LaFrance 50 foot ladder which now serves Mount Rushmore.
This truck has been the "first in" for all fires within city limits and the aerial waterway is a must for defensive fire operations. It carries 500 gallons of water, has a 75 foot aerial ladder and a 1500 gallon per minute pump. It also carries a variety of ground ladders, hand and power tools, it’s equipped with a generator and can carry 6 personnel.
Truck 7 is our best friend
on all structure fires!
This truck was built in 2004. For many years, and before Truck 7, Pumper 1 was the "first out" truck for our department. It carries 1000 gallons of water, generator, and deluge gun. This truck has been "first in" on numerous fires, and continues to serve our area on almost every call.
