HCFD Debuts New Ladder Truck
Haltom City Fire/Rescue has purchased a new ladder truck from Rosenbauer Fire Apparatus. The new truck is the result of a three-year process of planning and purchasing by the fire department and city officials. The truck is the largest piece of equipment ever purchased by the Haltom City Fire/Rescue Department. The ladder can reach a height of 100 feet and has a basket at the end to enable firefighters to stand while rescuing people.
Prior to placing the vehicle into service, the members of the fire department underwent training from the manufacturer, whose dealer is located here in Haltom City at 6000 Huddleston Street. The apparatus will respond to all calls for assistance within the city and for calls for aid in our surrounding communities. This new ladder truck now joins a fleet of city fire apparatus that includes a 75 foot ladder/pumper, two front-line pumpers, a grass fire truck, a heavy rescue truck and two reserve pumpers. This fleet of apparatus, funded by the citizens of Haltom City, helps Haltom City Fire Rescue provide a high level of emergency services.
The new ladder truck is housed at the Central Fire Station, 5525 Broadway Avenue.
