Reading Approves Fire Truck Purchase

November 21, 2007

READING, MA – The City of Reading has voted to borrow $850,000 to purchase a new ladder truck for the Fire Department. The town will replace its current truck, which is 16 years old and frequently out of service for repairs, according to Fire Chief Gregory Burns, according to http://www.boston.com.

The service life of a ladder truck is 15 to 17 years. Replacing the truck, which carries the Jaws of Life and can reach the third floors of buildings, is important for safety, Burns said. The town can expect to have the new vehicle in about 11 months.
