North Bay Fire Department getting new aerial truck

The North Bay Fire Department can expect a new fire truck next year.  Council’s community services committee has approved a $905,000 ladder truck which will be housed at Station 1.  The new vehicle will have a 75-foot ladder which can reach most high-rises in the city.  The fire department will keep its existing aerial truck which has a 100-foot ladder to be used where the new truck can’t reach.  The 100-foot ladder truck is currently at Station 1 but will move the Station 3 when the 75-foot aerial truck arrives.  It will take about eight months to customize and deliver the new vehicle to the fire department.  Meanwhile, the department will be retiring a 28-year-old platform truck and a 23-year-old pumper.  Council was told both vehicles are at the end of their usefulness.
