The 1980 Mack CF/Baker 75' Aerialscope that once served the FDNY as Tower Ladder 114 is alive and well in central Massachusetts. After leaving the FDNY this rig was acquired by Pembroke, New Hampshire where it worked for many years. Harvard, Mass picked it up in 2015 where it still runs as the town's only Truck Company. Harvard was recently approved to receive a new ladder truck via SAFER grant. Assuming the "chip shortage" does not delay its delivery, this Mack will be forced into retirement after proudly serving 42 years.
