HCFD Debuts New Ladder Truck

Haltom City Fire/Rescue new ladder truckHaltom 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.  

Christmas Tree Safety Tips

Although Christmas tree fires are not common, when they do occur, they are more likely to be serious. Carefully decorating your home can help make your holidays safer.

Selecting Your Tree

Choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched.

Preparation & Placement of the Tree

Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 2” from the base of the trunk. Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights. Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit. Add water to the tree stand and be sure to add water daily.

Lighting Your Tree

Use lights that have the label of an independent testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use. Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of light strands to connect. Never use lit candles to decorate the tree. Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed.

After Christmas

Get rid of the tree after Christmas. Dried-out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home, garage, or placed outside against the home. Bring outdoor electrical lights inside after the holidays to prevent hazards & make them last longer.
