Firefighters in the Town of Grand Rapids have a new ride.
The town announced this week it had replaced it aging aerial ladder truck. The new ladder truck is just another tool, according to Fire Chief Donald Bohn, in keeping the community safe.
“Our officers and firefighters are serious about the safety of all residents of the Town of Grand Rapids, and those in our contracted service areas in Saratoga and Grant,” Bohn said. “With the great community support and cooperation, our department is better able to serve everyone, residents and businesses alike.”
The new truck also helps the fire department keep its current high insurance classification. The town’s Public Safety Committee previously approved the truck.
“As the town chairman and a board member for over 20 years I am proud to see that our board recognizes our high quality well trained fire department members and are providing them with modern trucks and equipment,” said Town Chairman Arne Nystrom.
