From on online Twitter feed we have learned that Everett’s brand new Ladder 1 is about to go into service following a final inspection.
Thus ends about 2 years of negotiations and meetings and warnings and pleadings by the Fire Department for a new piece of badly needed state of the art equipment.
It is a brilliant red, double axel monster of a truck with major league capabilities and nothing quite like it in most departments at this moment in time.
For the proud members of the Everett Fire Department it is a big step in the right direction.
More new firefighting equipment just like it to replace outdated apparatus.
Nothing should be spared on new equipment.
The firefighters deserve it.
The residents of the city need to be kept safe.
