Truck 1

Truck 1

Truck 1 is a 1990 LTI 75-foot quint apparatus. A quint is unique from traditional fire engines and ladder trucks in that it can perform five (thus the term quint) functions. It carries water, it can pump water, it carries hose lines, it has a large aerial ladder and it carries a compliment of ground ladders. A fire engine does not have an aerial ladder and a traditional ladder truck is not equipped with a water tank or pump.

Truck 1 specifically carries 450 gallons of water, has three 1.75" pre-connected handlines, a 2.5" attack line, carries several hundred feet of 5" supply hose and is equipped with a full compliment of ground ladders. Truck 1's most notable feature is its 75-foot aerial ladder. The ladder is most often used as an elevated master stream when fighting fires from the exterior of a structure. Truck 1, which is capable of seating five firefighters, is also equipped with emergency medical gear.

Truck 1 is typically not staffed by career firefighters. However, it may be cross-staffed by career members for specific incidents where Truck 1's capabilities are required. It also serves as a reserve apparatus if Engine 1 or Engine 2 are out of service. During most other times, Truck 1 is operated by volunteer firefighters on an as-needed basis.
