In a Dec. 3 email, Chief Duane Phillips noted that the department’s newest pumper is a 2005 model and the oldest pumper is a 1993 model. The department’s ladder truck was taken out of service a few years ago because it couldn't pass the annual ladder test nor could the pump pass a pump test, Phillips explained. The department’s coverage area and the types of buildings within it heighten the importance of having a good aerial truck, he wrote. The department has 34 sets of turnout gear, the protective clothing that firefighters wear.
