The Lower Providence FD has taken delivery of a 2020 Pierce Ascendant 100' mid-mount Tower Ladder on a Velocity cab with seating for 6. There are 228' of ground ladders on the truck. This Tower replaces the former Spartan/Advantage Aerialscope that was sold a few years ago and the current Quint 53, a 2000 75' KME. The new Tower 53 will be in service after equipment mounting and all requisite training is completed.
