Back home; former Paterson FD Ladder 3, a 2005 E-One 100’ tiller that was in service until 2017 when it was replaced by a Pierce tiller. The rig was designated a spare until it was sold to North Hudson Regional Fire & Rescue in 2020 and was designated spare Ladder 7. The rig did not work out as planned and it came back to the PFD in late 2021. It again was placed in the spare pool and recently put into front line service as Ladder 1. Here, still in NHRF&R colors, its ladder pipe is put to use at a 2nd alarm on February 15th.
