Gilbert new Reserve Ladder

This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

Gilbert has placed a new reserve ladder in service. The tower ladder is a 2022 Pierce Arrox XT with a 2000 gallon per minute pump and 300 gallon water tank. It has a 100 foot rear mounted tower. This unit was a Hughes spec'd unit that Gilbert bought to help with an aging ladder fleet. The 2003 Pierce Quantum rear mount tower ladder was not fiscally worth repairing and the two Pierce Dash mid mount 95 foot tower ladders were aging out. A Gilbert spec'd unit has been purchased for Tower Ladder 251 and will be about a year out before delivery. In the mean time, Tower Ladder 251 will be utilizing this piece.
