VIDEO: As the City of Meridian grows, buildings are getting taller, so the Meridian Fire Department is making some changes to make sure they can respond to any fires in the city of Meridian, including the purchase of a new ladder truck that can go 70 to 90 feet up to fight fires Last month, the Meridian Fire Department continued a tradition of welcoming a new fire truck, by pushing it into the station. The Fire Chief said for the first time, they designed the truck by committee, to ensure the truck meets the department's needs. "It also is set up for extrication and heavy rescue equipment on it which is really unique," said Kris Blume, the Meridian Fire Chief. This isn't the only change they're making to prepare for buildings like the Union 93 that are under construction. "It's 84 feet tall. It's going to be the tallest building in meridian," said Rob Fraser with Galena Opportunity Inc, the developer behind the Union 93 project.
