Marblehead, Meet Your New $1.2M Quint Ladder Truck
Wondering what the town's new $1.2 million quint ladder truck will look like? Here are some pictures of the Fire Department's new apparatus.
Here are the first pictures of the Marblehead Fire Department's new state-of-the-art quint ladder truck, which is expected to pull into the station on Pleasant Street before the end of the month.
When the new apparatus arrives, the department's worn-out 1987 Mack Pumper will be taken out of service.
The name "quint" means five, and refers to the five functions that a quint provides: pump, water tank, fire hose, aerial ladder and ground ladders.
What do you think of the new ladder truck? Did you support the decision to buy it?
