Residents in East Montgomery County will soon see not just a new fire truck but a new fire station. Members of the East Montgomery County Fire Department ordered a new ladder truck to meet the need of the larger multi-story buildings and shopping centers in the area. Pierce Manufacturing in Wisconsin built the truck from the ground up. Captain Buik, Captain Denzler, and Engineer Willows have been putting Ladder 151 through the operation checks, and verifying the ladder truck was built to the specification list. They report it performed great, drove great, was built great, and are excited for it to soon be in service in East County. The next stop will be Garland Texas for the mounting of loose equipment and custom-built compartmentation.
