San Jose Fire Department takes delivery of new apparatus
After months of hard work the San Jose Fire Department has received the first two of four aerial apparatus built by Pierce Manufacturing of Appleton, Wisconsin.
According to a press release from Pierce the four aerial tillers are built on the Arrow XT chassis with TAK-4 independent suspension. Each truck features a 100-foot aerial ladder and a cab with seating for five.
By choosing Pierce Aerial Tillers the San Jose Fire Department continues to transition away from two-piece truck companies made possible by the additional storage space provided on each new apparatus.
The first two trucks are destined for Station 14 and Station 34. Additional trucks will be assigned to Station 2 and Station 35.
