Ladder 109 Push-In

New Fire Truck Push In – Aug 20, 2022

Residents were invited to the station as we celebrated the in-service of new Ladder 109 with a Push In.

Attendees were able to view and climb inside both the Ladder truck, which offers a 100 foot horizontal span, and Medic 112, placed in service in late March of 2022. Cookies by Simply Cinnamon and beverages were enjoyed by all before the big Push-In, when both kids and adults literally pushed the truck into its new home inside the garage.

The new 2021 Pierce Quint fire truck is both ladder and pump, replacing our 1998 Engine 102 and 1993 Ladder 109. It will serve as first out apparatus for all structure fires.

Discussions leading to the purchase took over two years, with the final price of the truck at $1,070,821, with approximately $579,000 being financed with levy funds over three years.

Our department is grateful to Lawrence Twp. Trustees and staff, and the villages of Bolivar and Zoar for their commitment to securing this great asset for the benefit of all.
